Michelle Keegan is dating her 'Coronation Street' co-star Ryan Thomas.
The brunette beauty has reportedly moved on from her split from The Wanted's Max George thanks to Ryan and the pair have enjoyed a series of dates.
A source told the Sunday Mirror newspaper: ''Michelle and Ryan have always got on extremely well but until now they have only ever been good friends. Ryan was with Tina O'Brien and then Michelle got with Max so even if they had wanted to get together they wouldn't have been able to.
''But since Michelle ended things with Max about a month ago they've been spending a lot of time together. At first it was just as friends but things have started to develop and their feelings for each other have become stronger. They've been out on a couple of dates and are taking things slowly. At the moment they are just two young people letting things happen naturally.''
The pair enjoyed a romantic meal together in Manchester last week and onlookers said they appeared besotted with each other.
One witness said: ''They seemed like a couple out on a date having a good time. Michelle looked stunning and Ryan looked pretty happy with himself.''
