Sophie has made waves on Hollyoaks after being revealed as the Gloved Hand Killer, but is preparing for an explosive exit after quitting the soap.
Corrie hunk Shayne Ward has found love with married Hollyoaks star Sophie Austin.
The Soap Awards happened last night and, as has become tradition, the glitzy red carpet was chockablock with impressive dresses; most notably, Sophie Austin's...
However, according to Ward, there's no truth to the rumours and they've had a giggle about it all since the photographs emerged."Michelle was a bit freaked out about it because they just showed me leaving [the house], no one else, and I know how professional she is," he said."But we have laughed about it since."Rumours claimed that Ward snuck out of Mone's mansion at [email protected] Austin1."Oh, we do love a good old foreshadowed romance.Ward, who plays Aidan Connor on the cobbles, had a long-term relationship with actress Faye Mc Keever, with the couple splitting in 2014 after over a decade together.Former X Factor winner Shayne, 31, has been single for two years but has reportedly ignited a romance with Sophie, 30 – whose marriage to actor Graeme Rooney has come to an end after eight months.A source close to the couple confirmed the romance – and said there was no overlap between Shayne and Sophie and her marriage to Graeme (who she had dated for over five years before tying the knot last July) but it sounds like there may have been an attraction for a while.Sophie, who was with Rooney for six years, said: "Very sadly, my husband and I separated a little while ago."The breakdown of any long-term relationship is always difficult and this is no exception."We’ve been best friends for so many years and I will always care for him dearly."A representative for Mr Ward said: "Their friendship has progressed since Sophie split with her partner, but it's still early days to comment further."Shayne, 31, hinted at an attraction to Sophie last year when he tweeted a picture of her in her underwear on Hollyoaks.
