Ex-EastEnders actress Samantha Womack is reportedly dating former Coronation Street star Oliver Farnworth making for one dream soap couple. 
The rumoured lovebirds starred together in the 2019 stage adaptation of The Girl On The Train and have remained close since. 
However, sources claim their relationship has turned romantic recently, almost a year after Samantha announced the end of her marriage to Mark Womack. 
An insider told The Sun: Samanthas chemistry with Oliver was clear to see on stage and they remained close after the production. 
They couldnt be happier and have loved dating away from the public eye. Theyve met each others families and it all feels very natural. Theyre totally smitten with each other. 
The source claims Samanthas ex-husband Mark is also happy for her too and that its all very grown-up and modern between the former spouses. 
Samantha, 48, fuelled rumours of her romance with Oliver, 38, on Friday when she shared cute photos of her and the actor together, with the caption: It is!!!!! How could you tell ? Heres some funny ones of his gorgeous face, in response to a fans comment. 
Last August, the actress who famously played Ronnie Mitchell in EastEnders, announced she had split from husband Mark although their relationship actually came to an end in 2018. 
The couple had been married for 11 years and share two children; Benjamin, 19, and 15-year-old Lili Rose, and decided to continue co-habiting despite their separation for the sake of their family.

Samantha told OK! magazine at the time: Our family home is big enough and were co-existing happily. Theres no rush to change things.
But now feels like the right time to be honest and admit were no longer together.
Meanwhile, Oliver is best known for playing Andy Carver in Corrie until the character was killed off in 2017.
