Coronation Street star Sam Robertson has been spotted on a date with Alex Scott, according to reports.

The 34 year old and Strictly Come Dancing favourite Alex, 35, were supposedly seen "flirting" as they enjoyed drinks in London's Soho at the the weekend.

According to eyewitnesses, Alex and Sam were said to have had "a brilliant time" as they "chatted affectionately" over cocktails.

A source said: "They both looked totally relaxed about being out together, even though they're both very famous now.

"Strictly made Alex a household name so she's instantly recognisable, and Sam is a big name on Corrie so they probably knew they'd be spotted out together but didn’t seem to mind at all.

"They laughed and flirted with each other and had a great time before heading off looking very cosy. They're clearly both happy."

Sam has played Ken Barlow's scheming grandson Adam on the hit ITV soap since 2004, but took an eight year break between 2008 and 2016.

Meanwhile, former footballer Alex won the hearts of the nation on Strictly last year, and has been tipped to become the new host of A Question Of Sport following Sue Barker's departure.

Gary Lineker appeared to let slip that Alex had landed the gig earlier this week, as he tweeted: "Congratulations and good luck to @AlexScott on being the new host for Question of Sport.

"Smart, knowledgeable and perfectly qualified for the role," he continued before referencing racist remarks Alex had received amid the rumours.

Wayne Lineker's brother added: "Oh…and if you have a problem with Alex getting the job, you might just be part of the problem."

However, a spokesperson for the BBC told Radio Times: "No conversations have been had about the future line-up."

Sue, 64, said after it was announced she would be departing the show: "I've absolutely loved my 24 years fronting A Question of Sport, it's been my dream job.
