A source attending the event revealed to The Sun that the pair were spotted locking lips after the awards bash was over.

The source said: "Katie and Sean had been getting close all night. They were huddled in a corner at the after-party.

"They kissed passionately and didn’t mind who was watching. They were all over each other."

This comes only weeks after Katie split from her salesman boyfriend Benji whom she had been in a relationship with since June 2017.

Following their breakup a source revealed to The Sun the reason for the relationship ending was that the spark between them had 'fizzled out'.
