Bobby Brazier sent heads turning on Sunday evening as he was snapped kissing fellow TV star Ella Morgan, who rose to fame on the most recent series of Married At First Sight. The EastEnders star headed out for the star-studded TV BAFTAs and its following boozy afterparty at London's Royal Festival Hall, and was seen locking lips with Ella in pictures obtained by The Sun.

Ella made history on MAFS last year as she became the first transgender participant in the TV show, which sees matched singles marry one another upon meeting. While Bobby has been a regular in Albert Square since 2022, playing Freddie Slater.

Claiming that the pair had 'flirty banter' throughout the night, a source told the publication: “Bobby and Ella were going for it, it was a proper snog and he went back a couple of times for more."

They continued: "They were sharing flirty banter and then they pulled each other to one side for a snog by the bar. Later, they had their arms wrapped around each other for another snog, too.”

OK! contacted representatives for Bobby and Ella for comment.

Bobby took part in Strictly Come Dancing at the tail-end of 2023, and was thought to have briefly dated his co-star on the show Ellie Leach, who is known for her role in Coronation Street and bagged the Strictly prize with dance partner Vito Coppola.

Ellie and Bobby are thought to have split in late March, with reports that distance played a part in things fizzling out. Bobby was then linked to fellow EastEnders star Jazzy Phoenix, with reports that a friendship between them had turned romantic.

But shutting down the rumours as he took to the red carpet during the TV BAFTAs, Bobby told a reporter: "Jazzy's not my girlfriend, she's a sweetheart though." He then went on to call her a 'sweet girl' but said that they are just good friends.

Bobby then dropped a huge hint about his future wife as he said: "I think I know the girl that I'm going to marry. She and her whole family are just something else," he explained, before refusing to name the mystery girl, however he did reveal that she is not famous - indicating that Ella wasn't the girl he was referring to.

Ella, on the other hand, had a brief relationship with her MAFS co-star JJ Slater, after the pair did not connect with their partners on the show and decided to pursue one another.

However, things didn't last and the couple parted ways at the end of the show, with JJ now in a relationship with Katie Price.
