Martine McCutcheon's 'Corrie' romance
16:30 13 July 2005
Martine McCutcheon is dating former 'Coronation Street' star Chris Bisson.
The ex-'Eastenders' actress reportedly fell for the handsome actor, who is currently playing a gay shopkeeper in the Channel 4 drama 'Shameless', after meeting him at a charity party.
The smitten couple spent the weekend together and are said to be "inseparable".
A friend revealed to Britain's The Sun newspaper: "They were very keen on each other."
Last year, Martine split from boyfriend James Tanner.
The sexy 'Love Actually' star, who had been dating the property developer for two years, ended the relationship because she wanted to concentrate on her career.
She said at the time: "I'm gutted as I really loved him but I have to give my career a shot. I'm only 28 and don't want to miss my chance. I plan to take on Hollywood and now have a new agent over in the US.
"I really loved James and thought he was the man for me. This last year has been a real rough one - but throughout it all, James was there for me."
