EastEnders stars Ben Hardy and Jessica Plummer spotted cosying up at a concert

The two former Eastenders stars Ben Hardy and Jessica Plummer have been spotted out on a cute concert date together.

The pair have gotten close since filming for a new BBC drama series where they play an onscreen couple.

The Hollywood actor's relationship with the ex Neon Jungle singer has blossomed during their time on the set of their new BBC TV show.

The familiar BBC One faces actors play a young couple in the new drama The Girl Before – and were seen together at singer Jade Bird’s London gig earlier this week by excited fans.

Jessica – who played Chantelle Atkins who was murdered in the soap – and Ben – who played Ian Beale’s son Peter – have been liking each other’s Instagram pictures for a few weeks.

The new series will showcase Jessica take on the role of Emma who falls in love with a minimalist house before finding out a woman had previously been killed in there.

Ben will star as the husband of Jessica's character in the 4-part series which is due to be released later this year.

Insiders have also revealed to The Sun that they have bonded after their on-screen chemistry transpired into off-screen chemistry too, and led to them spending time together out of work hours.

Since leaving EastEnders in 2015, Ben has gone on to transatlantic success with him hitting up Hollywood, with roles in X Men: Apocalypse, Bohemian Rhapsody and Netflix movie 6 Underground which Ryan Reynolds.

Though he didn’t overlap with Jessica, 28, at all on the soap, as she only joined for a year before being brutally killed off by her awful serial killer husband Gray in 2020.

Jessica also appeared on last year’s I’m A Celebrity, coming 7th on the hit ITV show.

The mum-of-one also shares a daughter, Noa, 6, with her ex-boyfriend.

Ben, 30, split with his ex-girlfriend, actress Olivia Cooke, earlier this year, with friends of theirs telling The Sun: “Olivia and Ben were smitten to begin with but the intensity soon fizzled out. They’re at pivotal points in their acting careers and just couldn’t make it work.”

The insider continued to explain that Ben and his Olivia were at "pivotal points" of their acting careers, making it difficult for their relationship to work.
