EMMERDALE brothers Max Parker and Kris Mochrie are dating in real-life, The Sun Online can exclusively reveal.
The actors – who play Luke and Lee Posner in the ITV soap – have enjoyed a string of romantic dates after meeting on set earlier this year.
Kris’ character Lee was killed off after being murdered by Robert Sugden and the couple only met on his last day of filming.
They never shared a scene together because of the storyline but backstage a friendship developed and then romance blossomed.
A source exclusively told The Sun Online: “They met on Kris’ last day filming and just hit it off.
“They were cast as brothers and are really alike and have been joking that casting did a great job.
“The boys kept in touch after Kris finished on the show but they’ve spent a lot of time together over summer.
“It’s early days but they’re really enjoying themselves and who knows what the future holds.”
The couple set tongues wagging on social media last month after filming themselves on a hike in the middle of a summer storm.
They were forced to strip off after being caught in a heavy storm – and couldn’t resist taking pictures for their fans on social media.
On-screen Max’s character Luke is set to reunite with ex-girlfriend Victoria Sugden after splitting when she realised it was too soon for her to be in a relationship after her rape at the hand’s of his brother Lee.
An insider told how they will be “back inside each other’s orbits” later in the summer.
Should make for an interesting family reunion!
