It has been reported that Jen and David have grown close on set with a source telling the Mirror Online: “Jen and David have been working closely together for over a year now and people on the Hollyoaks set suspect they're more than friends.

"Some of the cast feel sorry for Greg as it seems quite fast since he and Jen split."

Jen and David, who married onscreen last year, were seen in her Range Rover, stopping off a petrol station in Liverpool. The pair also picked up lunch at TGI Friday while filming.

OK! online has contacted Jennifer's reps for comment.

The 36 year old, who shares three-year-old son Daye with Greg, 35, confirmed their split to her 363,000 followers by writing: “Greg and I decided to part ways amicably a couple months ago.

"We remain friends and we both will continue to happily co parent Daye and would appreciate privacy during these times.

"Thank you to everyone who has supported us before, during and after this."

The pair welcomed their son in 2017, with Mercedes McQueen actress Jennifer describing him as their "miracle baby" at the time.

Before Greg, Jen was with professional skater Sylvian Longchambon, who is now married to Corrie's Samia Longchambon, for a year.

Jennifer and Greg moved in together in early 2017, finding a place in Newcastle to call home.

It hadn't been possible for the pair to live together properly before that because of work commitments, with Jennifer filming Hollyoaks in Liverpool.

This year the pair had been living together in lockdown, with Greg even sharing a snap of his other half in March cleaning their bathroom while wearing a thong.

Greg shared the snap to his Instagram writing: "Thank you. When you're in isolation and she's OCD."
