Holby City's Alex Walkinshaw 'dating younger co-star after splitting from wife'

Holby City star Alex Walkinshaw is reportedly dating one of his co-stars after splitting from his wife of 11 years.

The 45-year-old who plays nurse Adrian Fletcher in the BBC drama is reportedly seeing 33-year-old actress Natasha Morgan – who regularly plays a nurse on Holby City.

It comes after it was reported that Alex had separated from his make-up artist wife Sarah Trusler after 11 years of marriage.

The actor was spotted with Natasha, who has also starred in Made in Chelsea, last Friday and over the weekend at his current home near BBC Elstree Studios in Hertfordshire.

According to The Sun on Sunday the couple apparently ‘hit if off’ after their first meeting.

‘Alex and Natasha grew close after meeting on set,’ an inside source began.

‘They really hit it off and she likes to ask him for advice on her career. She has been comforting him after splitting from his wife.’

The source went on to add that Alex has been focusing on his work following his split from his wife.

‘It’s obviously a huge change for Alex and she has helped support him through that,’ they added.

It is understood that the actor split from Sarah, who he shares two children with, about 18 months ago.

Alex joined Casualty in 2012 and is now a firm favourite on Holby City.

He is also more famously known for his role in The Bill where he played Dale ‘Smithy’ Smith.

Natasha, is a familiar face on our TV screens as in the past she has appeared on BBC1 soap EastEnders.

She played a barmaid alongside Danny Dyer and played a market shopper opposite Shane Richie.

Metro.co.uk has reached out to Alex and Natasha’s rep for comment.

Holby City continues Tuesday at 8pm on BBC One.
