'Downton Abbey' star Allen Leech is dating a make-up artist who works on the show.
Allen - who plays chauffeur Tom Branson in the ITV series - met his new love when she helped perfect his face for the screen on a set at Ealing TV studios in West London.
The 32-year-old Irish actor said of his mystery woman: "She is Scottish so I'm keeping the Celtic thing going.
"She's a make-up artist. This is going to sound wrong but she did everybody, I just stood out. "We've been together for a year, I think it is serious. It is going very well."
Speaking during a live talk show-style performance by US comedy characters Ronna and Beverly at Soho Theatre in Central London Allen admitted his partner was in the audience but when quizzed about marriage he didn't like to give too much away, saying: "I'll let you know."
Allen was previously linked to 'Downton Abbey's' Jessica Brown Findlay - who played Lady Sybil Crawley, who now been killed off - but later denied a romance between the pair.
