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

Eagle-eyed fans have also been quick to notice that the pair have been liking each other’s photos on Instagram for weeks.

According to The Sun Jessica and Ben were said to have ‘grown close’ since appearing as a couple in the new programme, and they have been spending more time together off-screen since June.

It comes after it was reported that Ben had split from his girlfriend Olivia Cooke earlier this year, with sources claiming at the time their romance ‘fizzled out.’  

MailOnline have contacted both Jessica’s and Ben’s representatives for comment.

Ben – who played Ian Beale’s son Peter in the soap – has starred in Hollywood films such as Bohemian Rhapsody and X-Men: Apocalypse since his departure from the show. 

Meanwhile Jessica played the embattled Chantelle Atkins, who came to a tragic end when she was killed by her abusive husband Gray.

The two of them never starred in the soap at the same time, with Ben leaving in 2015 and Jessica only starring in it for a year before being killed off in 2020, and their paths have only just crossed. 

Jessica came seventh in 2020’s I’m A Celebrity, and shares a daughter, Noa, six, with her former boyfriend. 

Ben was with his girlfriend Olivia earlier this year before calling it quits, with an insider telling The Sun that their intense romance simply faded away. 

The insider stated that Ben and his ex were at pivotal points of their acting career and the relationship ceased to work. 

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

The pair’s series will see Jessica take on the role of Emma who becomes enamoured with a minimalist house before finding out a woman has been killed in the house before.  

Ben will star as the husband of Jessica’s character in the four-part series. 

Filming continues to be underway in Bristol for the HBO Max and BBC series, and is set to be released 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
