Vera actor Kenny Doughty has reportedly struck up a romance with a former co-star of his.
The 46-year-old star, best known for playing DS Aiden Healy on the ITV crime drama, is said to have a new leading lady in his life.
A source claimed Kenny is now in a relationship with Ashley Jensen, with whom he starred on BBC One drama series Love, Lies and Records.
Scottish actress Ashley, 51, played Kate Dickenson on the 2017 show while Kenny played Rick Severs.
The alleged couple were reportedly pictured holding hands and laughing together after dining at Robun Japanese restaurant in Bath last month.
The couple are believed to have grown close over the past summer.
A source said: “Ashley and Kenny have been friends for some time and he has been an immense support to her over the past few years.
“They make a lovely couple and all her friends are absolutely thrilled for them.
“Ashley is both a wonderful actress and a wonderful person – and she deserves this second chance at happiness,” the insider added to The Sun.

Ashley was devastated in November 2017 when her husband Terence Beesley took his own life.
The couple were married for ten years and have a son together named Francis, who was born in October 2009.
The former The Bill actor was found by Ashley in his Mercedes at the family home in Camerton, Somerset.
Ashley told the Inquiry the following year: “I was extremely shocked by what happened that night and I will never forget it.
“Terry and I were together for 18 years but I had no idea he was capable of what he was doing.”
The Mirror have contacted representatives of Ashley and Kenny for comment.
