Emmerdale star Ned Porteous, who plays Joe Tate in the ITV soap, has revealed that he is dating US actress Lucy Heath.
The 24-year-old soap star met Lucy in Los Angeles and the couple have been spending time together on both sides of the Atlantic, according to reports.
Ned broke the hearts of Emmerdale fans when he decided to leave his character of Joe Tate, so that he could have a shot at making it in America.
It looks like he cracked finding love, even if he hasn't quite made it in Hollywood, after meeting up with Lucy Heath while in Los Angeles.
An insider told The Sun that it may be "early days" but "Ned is really enjoying dating Lucy."
They have grown "really close" since meeting and while Ned "usually likes to keep his love life private," he has been more open this time, posting photos of the pair together on social media.
Ned made a brief return to Emmerdale recently but insiders have insisted that this was just a "cameo" and that he will be heading back to Los Angeles, in the hope of making it in America.
Speaking previously about his adventure in the United States, Ned said: "I haven’t had a holiday for a very long time so I’m desperate first to get out to America.
"I’ve got management out there so I want to try my hand with the American casting system and then go on a little holiday.
"I will turn my phone off, go climbing, go camping, go fishing."
So far he has found love, even if he hasn't found his dream role in Hollywood.
