She was previously linked to her Our Girl co-star Ben Aldridge, but last week Michelle Keegan was unwittingly drawn into more speculation when she was snapped on set in Manchester ‘cosying up’ to another handsome colleague, Luke Pasqualino.

Pals say that behind the scenes Michelle - whose 13-month marriage to Mark Wright, 29, has been plagued by reports of problems as their jobs kept them in different countries and cities - has been turning to Luke for support as she battles to keep her marriage alive.

A source tells Closer : “Michelle has become extremely close to Luke over the past few months and he’s become a good friend. They’ll often chat in each other’s trailer or go for walks together.

Luke’s really good at helping Michelle see Mark’s point of view and will tell her if he thinks she’s overreacting. Michelle appreciates his opinion and has learnt to trust him during their time together as they've all become like family whilst being away filming."

Former Skins actor Luke, 26, has a history of dating his co-stars and has had romances with Skins actress Klariza Clayton and was in a long distance relationship with former Gossip Girl actress Jessica Szohr, 31.

A source says: “Mark was furious when he saw Michelle was linked to Luke. He trusts her implicitly but the gossip hit him hard. Having Luke described as a ‘Mark Wright lookalike’ in reports online made things worse and it felt like he’d been punched in the stomach.’
