The rumoured romance is a fairly new development in Natalie’s love life – last October she spoke of being happily single.

“I don’t have time for romance. I am still single,” she said. “But I am quite a happy single person. You accept yourself.

“Statistics prove that you are a lot happier and healthier now if you are single, because you don’t have to compromise.

“You are in control. You get pickier when you get older, you know what you don’t want.”

Natalie and Jonny’s soap alter-egos are both currently single – Moira has split from husband Cain, while Liam dumped girlfriend Leyla after she slapped his daughter Leanna.
