Hayley Tamaddon is dating Joe Tracini.
The 'Coronation Street' star has been seeing the 26-year-old actor - who is the son of comedian Joe Pasquale - since November, after developing a close friendship.
A pal of the actress - who plays Andrea Beckett in the ITV show - said: "It's lovely to see Hayley so happy. Her relationship with Joe has been bubbling for a while and no one has noticed they're together.
"They were friends for a while then things developed into something more. He really makes her laugh."
The news comes just five months after she split from her partner, comedian Marcus Brigstocke, who left his wife of 12 years for the 38-year-old soap star after they became close starring in the Monty Python musical 'Spamalot'.
As well as a failed relationship with the 41-year-old funny-man, Hayley was unlucky in love with choreographer Darren Charles whom she became engaged to before they broke up in 2010 when she discovered he had been unfaithful.
Following a string of failed relationships, friends of the actress believe her relationship with Joe - who plays Dennis Savage in rival soap 'Hollyoaks' - could be just what she needs, as they both understand the dedication their careers require.
A source told the Daily Mirror newspaper: "It is early days but the signs are good and, as they are both actors, they can appreciate what they each do and the stresses that come with their jobs."
