They've been loved up since 2016 and their relationship is going from strength to strength.

And Dean Gaffney, 40, proved his romance with Rebekah Ward, 24, was still going strong when the pair enjoyed a date night in London on Thursday.

The EastEnders star looked proud to be out and about with the stunning blonde - who is 16 years his junior and just three years older than his own daughters.

Dean was looking dapper in a grey knit and jeans, adding a smart edge to his attire with a grey coat.

Rebekah turned heads in an eye-catching blue jumpsuit, wrapping up warm in a slinky faux fut stole.

She kept her accesssories coordinated, slinging a beige YSL bag over one shoulder and slipping her feet into matching peep toe heels.

Dean and Rebekah were first romantically linked in April 2016 and since then it appears their relationship has gone from strength to strength.

Dean was quick to introduce his girlfriend to his twin daughters Chloe and Charlotte, 21, from his previous relationship with ex-fiancee Sarah Burge.

Dean and Sarah had dated for ten years and the soap star confessed to being unfaithful following their split.

In an interview with The Sun last year, he admitted: 'Women were my drug and now, looking back, I'm ashamed of my past.

'How many times did it happen? I couldn't put a finger on it.'

Since getting together with Rebekah, the duo have often been pictured out with Dean's daughters.

He, meanwhile, has been given the seal of approval from Rebekah's father, despite his lothario past, as Merlay Wood told the Sunday People: 'He seems like he's turned over a new leaf. They're having a happy relationship.'

Last year, Dean reprised his role as Robbie Fowler on BBC soap EastEnders.

He last appeared on the show in 2015 very briefly, years after his official departure in 2003. 

Dean had appeared on the soap for a decade and excitedly speaking about his return, he has said: 'I’m really happy to be back. I’m so lucky to be given the chance to work again with such a talented group of people.'
