This weekend they have been celebrating Kris’ birthday on a romantic weekend in Manchester.

But the super fit pair managed to squeeze in a shirtless gym workout, where Max appeared to joke that Kris’ incredible physique was merely a 7/10.

The couple’s relationship was revealed earlier this summer after they enjoyed a string of dates.

A source told The Sun: “They met on Kris’ last day filming and just hit it off.

“They were cast as brothers and are really alike and have been joking that casting did a great job.

“The boys kept in touch after Kris finished on the show but they’ve spent a lot of time together over summer.”

The insider added that it’s “early days” but the pair are “really enjoying themselves and who knows what the future holds”.

The couple sparked speculation when they filmed themselves on social media on a hike in the middle of a thunderstorm.

Kris, who played rapist Lee Posner on Emmerdale last year, posted a video to Instagram showing him and Max walking through the rain.
