Joe Thomas confirms Hannah Tointon romance


Joe Thomas has confirmed he is dating his ‘The Inbetweeners’ co-star Hannah Tointon. 

The 27-year-old actor – who plays unlucky-in-love Simon Cooper in the E4 teen comedy – admitted while he thinks the brunette beauty is “amazing”, he doesn’t understand how love blossomed on the set. 

He told BANG Showbiz: “I am seeing Hannah. She’s lovely and amazing. I honestly think she’s incredible but I can’t really see how our scenes together kindled romance because they were all sort of her being sick into my mouth and stuff. I’m obviously really into that! 

“It’s quite an intense thing being on set, so I think that probably contributed to it. But we’re not basing our relationship on our characters’ relationship in the show. That would be disastrous.” 

Joe also revealed seeing Hannah’s sister – former ‘EastEnders’ actress Kara Tointon – compete in ‘Strictly Come Dancing’ has made him keen to take part in the BBC One show himself. 

Speaking at the Galaxy National Book Awards at BBC Television Centre, he said: “We went down the other week to watch her and it’s actually made me quite keen to do it. 

“I don’t think I ever could though because I’m such a terrible dancer, but apparently that’s the entire point now!”
