Spider-Man fans are elated after paparazzi pictures have emerged appearing to show Tom Holland and Zendaya kissing.
The actors have played love interests on screen in the Marvel films, in which the British actor plays the titular character and Emmy-winning Zendaya stars as Peter Parker's classmate, MJ.
Zendaya has appeared in three Spider-Man films with Holland, the latter of which Spider-Man: No Way Home is currently slated to be released later this year.
Here's everything we know about these co-stars turned couple, starting with the latest update:
July 2021: Zendaya Discusses Bond With Tom Holland
The actor has opened up about her relationship with her Spider-Man co-stars in a recent interview, telling E!'s Daily Pop that she's 'grateful' for her character MJ in the franchise..
Speaking of filming the series' forthcoming film Spider-Man: No Way Home with her rumoured boyfriend Holland, Zendaya noted: 'We were all just absorbing and taking the time to just enjoy the moment, being with each other and being so grateful for that experience.
'When I did the first movie, I was 19. It's pretty special to have grown up all together,' she added, noting that she and the series' cast, which also includes actor Laura Harrier, are 'so close'.
Tom Holland and Zendaya spotted kissing
In photographs obtained by Page Six, the Spider-Man stars are seen kissing while sat in a car in Los Angeles. They were later seen with Zendaya's mother, Claire, according to the outlet.
Many outlets and fans have taken their sighted kiss as confirmation to longstanding rumours that the pair (who have since been dubbed #tomdaya) were more than just friends and the reaction on social media is quite something:
Have there been rumours about Tom Holland and Zendaya before?
Yes, which isn't a surprise when people play love interests in films. Especially when it comes to Spider-Man (need we mention Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone, or the rumours about Tobey Maguire and Kirsten Dunst becoming an item?)
Reports first circulated that the couple were dating in 2017, however Zendaya soon downplayed those stories when she took to Twitter to respond to rumours that the co-stars had holidayed together:
In July that year, Holland temporarily caused fans to skip a breath when he was asked who his first celebrity crush was in an interview and he responded with: 'Zendaya'....
..going on to joke: 'No it wasn't Zendaya, my first growing up was probably Jennifer Aniston', but still!
In August that year, the Euphoria star flat out denied the relationship rumour in an interview with Variety saying: 'We are friends. He’s a great dude. He’s literally one of my best friends. This past how many months we’ve had to do press tours together. There’s very few people that will understand what that’s like at 20-years-old.'
