Former Coronation Street star Tina O’Brien has split from boyfriend Nick Cox and is growing closer to Strictly singleton Gavin Henson.

According to reports, Tina and Nick, who met on the set of Waterloo Road, have drifted apart, leaving Tina finding comfort in the arms of this year’s Strictly Come Dancing contestant Gavin Henson.

An insider told The Sun’s TV Biz: “Tina still has affection for Nick, but it’s over. They weren’t dating for that long so it’s not getting her down.”

Speaking about Tina and Gavin’s relationship, the insider added: “They’ve been flirting like mad behind the scenes and everyone thinks they’d make a great couple.

“It’s no secret that Gavin is gagging for it – he’s a red-blooded male after all.

“Tina is hot, so it’s no surprise he’s interested.”
