Ex-EastEnders stars Jessica Plummer and Ben Hardy confirmed their romance after the pair were spotted sharing a sweet smooch during a London night out.

The pair, who first sparked romance rumors during this summer as they had starred together in the BBC drama, The Girl Before, have now confirmed they are dating after they shared a kiss in the street.

The pair are both known for appearing in EastEnders, with Ben playing the character Peter Beale and Jessica as a series regular portraying Chantelle Atkins.

Since growing close after appearing as a couple in the new psychological thriller series, the pair have said to have spent more time together off-screen since June.

In the streets of London, a paparazzi snap shows the pair embracing one another as they climb into a taxi with Ben comforting Jessica, who many might know for also being in the pop band Neon Jungle and in last year's I'm A Celeb, as he wrapped his arms around her, enjoying a kiss and staring deep into her eyes.

The series in which the two lovers kindled their love for each other, The Girl Before, is a forthcoming 4-part television drama adaptation created for HBO max and the BBC.

The plot explores a traumatized woman played by Jessica, who falls in love with an extraordinary minimalist house, which remains under the architect's spell who originally designed it. Ben co-stars as Jessica's husband in the psychological thriller series.

In Bristol, filming continues to be underway for the series and is set to be released later in 2021.

Ben had split from his girlfriend Olivia Cooke earlier this year, with inside sources claiming that their romance 'fizzled out.'

Jessica appeared on last year's I'm A Celebrity, coming 7th and shares a daughter Noa, 6, with her ex-boyfriend.

In EastEnders, Jessica played Chantelle Atkins, who tragically died after the character had been murdered by her abusive husband Gray.

Since leaving the square, Ben has now forged a Hollywood career appearing in blockbuster movies Bohemian Rhapsody, a sequel in the X Men saga and the Netflix movie 6 Underground with co-star Ryan Reynolds.
