The special moment happened when Tamara and Gareth were on holiday together in Ibiza, after a whirlwind romance.

The couple have only together for a few months, but that didn’t stop Tamara from posting numerous loved-up selfies while on the idyllic Spanish island.

Alongside one of them, she wrote: ‘Nothing quite like nighttime in Ibiza with the one you love #cringealert’.

She usually posts about their romance on social media, and had called Gareth her ‘soulmate’ in her posts before.

Soulmates …….. ❤️

Speaking about her work in Hollyoaks, where she plays Grace Black, Tamara said that all the cast and the rest of staff are like a family, and rely on each other when they have a down day.

She told Closer: ‘Hollyoaks is like one big family – especially as a lot of the cast aren’t from the area, so we’re not close to family and friends.

‘If you have a down day – you’ve got so many people around you to pick you up and can call any one of them, that’s the lovely thing about it.’
