An insider said: "Producers think Nick and Emily getting together would make good telly.

“Nick has a type and Emily fits the bill. And she hasn’t minded a famous boyfriend in the past.

"Everyone is watching closely and hoping for a proper spark.

“They’ve had a couple of moments on screen that producers thought was a good sign. They’re seeing how things develop.”

Dad-of-four Nick previously dated Towie star Pascal Craymer, 31, Emmerdale actress Gemma Oaten, 34, and was married to Jessica Moor - who is 25 years his junior and the daughter of one of his mates.

Meanwhile Emily, who played Charlotte 'big jugs' Hinchliffe in the E4 series, has dated Harry Styles, 24, and Dougie Poynter, 30.
