Former Emmerdale stars Chelsea Halfpenny and James Baxter have revealed they are in a romantic relationship years after both leaving the soap.

The first inkling they may have got together was back in October last year, when Chelsea Instagrammed a snap of James sat in front of a tub of Twiglets.

More recently, she has shared pictures of herself and James during a day out in Whitstable and one taken beside the sea in Brighton.


Alongside one photo of them in Vienna, she said: “Pick a boyfriend that pretty much just looks exactly the same as you. @baxter3890.”

Chelsea finished with the hashtags: “#Vienna #butletsbehonestwecouldbeanywhere #tryingtopulloffaberet.”

James was the first to land a part in Emmerdale, having played Jake from 2007 to 2009.

Chelsea then joined the soap the following year, taking on the role of Amy until 2013, so they never actually met on set!

Emmerdale fans are delighted to see they have found love, however, with one writing on Instagram: “You two are so cute.”

Another wrote: “Man, you two are actually perfect.”
