Alongside one of them, she wrote: 'Nothing quite like nighttime in Ibiza with the one you love #cringealert'.

She usually posts about their romance on social media, and had called Gareth her 'soulmate' in her posts before.

Speaking about her work in Hollyoaks, where she plays Grace Black, Tamara said that all the cast and the rest of staff are like a family, and rely on each other when they have a down day.

She told Closer: 'Hollyoaks is like one big family - especially as a lot of the cast aren’t from the area, so we’re not close to family and friends.

'If you have a down day - you’ve got so many people around you to pick you up and can call any one of them, that’s the lovely thing about it.'
