“They went on a couple of dates after catching up through mutual friends. They’ve kept it low key so far.”

The paper adds that the 'Corrie' actor has attended a number of events with Sophie, though they are yet to make a joint red carpet appearance.

Shayne joined ‘Coronation Street’ in mid-2015, and so far, he’s been a huge hit with fans.

Meanwhile, Sophie has played the murderous Lindsay Roscoe in ‘Hollyoaks’ since 2013.
