Kym and Samuel are currently starring in the UK and Ireland tour of smash hit musical 101 Dalmatians, which kicked off in Wimbledon last month. As part of the tour, former soap star Kym is appearing as Cruella de Vil while Samuel has a role as Tom Dearly.

Over the years 6ft-tall Samuel has appeared on several roles on stage, including in The Normal Heart at The National Theatre and he even won the award for Best Actor in a Musical at The Stage Debut Awards in 2017 for his role in Allegro at Southwark Playhouse.

Kym's new romance comes one year after she appeared to confirm her split from her split from Army Major Scott Ratcliff, after the pair tied the knot in October 2021 in front of 150 guests. Back in May 2023, it was reported that the pair had called time on their relationship 19 months after saying their 'I dos', with Kym later appearing to break her silence on the matter.

Discussing her failed marriages with The Guardian, the soap star said: "It's just experience." She added: "I think I am a risk-taker because ‘What if?’ is always worse."

She continued: "Comfortable is not good. I always want to be that person who has a go, because I wouldn’t want to sit there years down the line and say: ‘I wonder what would have happened if …?’”
