The couple went Instagram official with their romance in September 2018, when Aimee wished her beau happy birthday by sharing a series of cute selfies.
She captioned the pictures: “Happy day of birth Swindells, you beautiful magnificent man. You’ve been a warrior king forever in the hundreds of lives you have already lived but now you’re my [king emoj].”
She also thanked the pair’s characters for bringing them together off screen.
“I’m owning my narrative. Big thank you to Adam Groff and Aimee Gibbs for making all this possible,” she said.
Connor has also opened up about working alongside his girlfriend and previously admitted that the pair use an intimacy director on set.
He told The Telegraph that using the intimacy director meant “you’re not taking anything from your own life.”.

He added: “When you do that, you get home at the end of the day and you’re depressed and you feel vulnerable, because you’ve just shown people what you do in the most personal, vulnerable situation.”
The pair have also graced the red carpet, attending last year’s BRIT Awards together and posing for pictures on the red carpet.
