The couple first got together after appearing as fellow contestants on the reality TV show in 2016, months after Davis finished a five-year run playing Sinead O’Connor in Hollyoaks.

She first came into the public eye when she took part in the BBC talent-spotting show Over The Rainbow in 2010.

A representative for Davis has been contacted for comment.
