Victoria: Jenna Coleman and Tom Hughes are dating!

On-screen lovers Jenna Coleman and Tom Hughes who play Queen Victoria and Prince Albert on ITV’s Victoria have been dating!


According to The Daily Mail on Sunday, the couple have been secretly dating since last summer before they started filming for Victoria.

The background story to their relationship involves Prince Harry after he made a move on Jenna Coleman at a Polo Match and Tom became so jealous that he decided to act upon his feelings for Jenna.

The couple met whilst filming BBC 2’s drama Dancing on The Edge, at the time, Jenna Coleman was dating Game Of Thrones star Richard Madden and Tom was living with actress Ophelia Lovibond.

Sources close to the couple told the Newspaper:

‘They’ve been together for months, on and off since last summer,’ said one friend. ‘Tom dumped his long-term girlfriend to be with Jenna and she chose to be with him even though Prince Harry was very keen on her. What started as an affair became a very serious romance.’

They have managed to keep their relationship secret but last week they were spotted getting cosy at The Electric, the Notting Hill branch of exclusive club Soho House and were seen leaving, wrapped in each others arms.

A fellow guest said: ‘They were giggling together and very affectionate. One friend was joking about how they are perfect for each other as they are both short.’

The pair have been starring alongside each other on ITV’s Victoria, their on screen relationship has contributed to the high viewing figures, allowing it to overtake to BBC One’s Poldark.

‘The reason the chemistry is so tangible is because they are dating in real life. Those scenes are very real. They are completely hooked on one another.’

‘They wanted to keep it quiet because they didn’t want their professionalism called into question,’ said the source. ‘Also Tom was dating another actress when he met Jenna and it was all a bit messy.’

Tune in to ITV at 9pm tonight to watch the pair on Victoria.
