Ex-EastEnders stars Jessica Plummer and Ben Hardy CONFIRM romance with kiss

Jessica Plummer and Ben Hardy, who met on the set of EastEnders, sealed their new romance with a lovely kiss on a night out in London recently.

The couple, who ignited romance rumors in the summer and star together in the new BBC drama The Girl Before, appeared to be happier than ever as they embraced and kissed on the street – before Jessica, 28, stepped into a cab.

Ben, 30, was seen in the street with Jessica, wrapping a gentle arm around her and peering into each other’s eyes.


Jessica impressed in a sleek black costume and matching coat as she locked lips with Ben, who portrayed Chantelle Atkins in the BBC soap.

Ben, who played Peter Beale and has since made a name for himself in Hollywood, sported a black suit.

Ben and Jessica first ignited romance rumors when they were seen on a date in August.

The duo were reportedly seen together earlier this week at a concert for singer Jade Bird.

Fans have also noticed that the two have been liking each other’s images on Instagram for several weeks.

The Sun claims that Since their appearance as a couple in the new show, Jessica and Ben are claimed to have ‘gotten closer,’ and they have been spending more time together off-screen since June.

It comes after it was revealed that Ben and his girlfriend Olivia Cooke had broken up earlier this year, with sources stating their relationship had ‘fizzled out.’

Jessica and Ben’s reps have been asked for comment by MailOnline.

Since leaving the series, Ben, who played Ian Beale’s son Peter, has been in Hollywood blockbusters such as Bohemian Rhapsody and X-Men: Apocalypse.

Meanwhile, Jessica played Chantelle Atkins, a troubled woman who met a tragic end when her violent husband Gray killed her.

Jessica only played in the soap for a year before being killed off in 2020, and their paths have only recently intersected. Ben left in 2015, and Jessica only starred in it for a year before being killed off in 2020.

Jessica placed sixth on I’m A Celebrity in 2020, and she and her ex-boyfriend have a six-year-old daughter, Noa.

Ben was dating Olivia until calling it quits earlier this year, with an insider telling The Sun that their intense romance suddenly drifted away.

According to the source, Ben and his ex-girlfriend were at a crossroads in their acting careers when their relationship ended.

Off-screen romance? The insider revealed: ‘on-screen chemistry turned into them spending off-screen time together since June’ 

Jessica will play Emma, a woman who falls in love with a simple house before learning that a woman had been murdered there before.


In the four-part series, Ben will play Jessica’s character’s husband.

Filming for the HBO Max and BBC series is still going on in Bristol, with a release date slated for later in 2021.

Crossed paths at last: Jessica, who played Chantelle Atkins on the soap (pictured), did not star in EastEnders alongside Ben, because he left the soap in 2015
