Emmerdale star Fiona Wade has shared a romantic picture of herself with her new boyfriend Simon Cotton. The actress, who plays Priya Sharma in the soap, had previously divulged that she was in a new relationship with someone in the acting industry but the post on social media is the first time that she has gone public with her romance.
Fans may recall that Simon played a Home Farm Estates client called Hugh Bryant, who was unimpressed by Rebecca Whites organisational skills when she was left to run the business alone after a divide in her family.
Speaking previously about her romance, Fiona told us: Im with someone right now. Hes an actor and writer based in London. Its fairly new, weve been together since last year and hes a very wonderful guy, but Ive kept it quiet. I just wanted time to get to know him – hes very special.
It seems the romance is going from strength to strength now that Fiona is happy to share the pictures of them looking happy together – and we are made up for them!
On screen at the moment, Priya recently got on the wrong side of killer Lachlan White and suspected his behaviour was less than admirable but whether or not she will get dragged back into the saga remains to be seen.
Last year, her main storylines involved the exit of her deceitful husband Rakesh which then led to her having an affair with Pete Barton, a liaison which ended in disaster when Leyla Harding discovered the truth, resulting in a nasty clash between the two friends.
