She said: J”onny McPherson and I started to see each other, our first date was in mid-January and then we were just having a couple of dates in February and then obviously in March lockdown happened.

“And we were together at the time Boris Johnson announced it so we were like ‘oh’. He’s kind of been staying with me and then they were saying ‘yes it could be three weeks, yes it might be six weeks’ and I was like ‘oh okay’.

She revealed their relationship ‘evolved’ from a charity event for children with cancer, where they went to Lapland for the day. The actress said after the event they got to know each other more.

In a cheeky comment about being in lockdown together, Natalie added: “Well we’ve had a few wobbles I’m not going to lie but the making up was fantastic.”

Before being hit, Moira just discovered her friend Harriet was cheating on her fiance Will with dodgy DI Malone.

As Malone has been terrorising Cain for months and has proved to be ruthless, he is the number one suspect.

However what Moira’s family don’t know is that Jamie is the one who hit Moira.

But later in the week his wife Andrea will use this to her advantage and threaten to go to the police if Jamie ever leaves her.
