On-screen Emmerdale brothers Max Parker and Kris Mochrie are now ‘dating’ after hitting it off on the show
Two British actors who play brothers in the beloved soap opera Emmerdale are reportedly dating in real life and maybe 23AndMe should launch a dating app.
Max Parker and Kris Mochrie, who play siblings Luke and Lee Posner in the ITV show, have allegedly enjoyed a string of romantic dates since meeting last year. Ranging from shirtless sunbathing on deck chairs to rain-soaked hikes.
Sources told The Sun that as much as Emmerdale‘s script meant the pair never filmed any scenes together, off-set a romance bloomed, with them even acknowledging that “casting did a really good job”.
Emmerdale stars: ‘We are literally like annoying brothers now! Casting did good!’
“They met on Kris’ last day filming and just hit it off,” the insider told the outlet, referring to how Mochrie’s character was killed off after being murdered by Robert Sugden.
“They were cast as brothers and are really alike and have been joking that casting did a great job.
“The boys kept in touch after Kris finished on the show but they’ve spent a lot of time together over summer.
“It’s early days but they’re really enjoying themselves and who knows what the future holds.”
Rumours first sparked that Parker and Mochrie are dating when they took to Instagram to share videos and snaps of themselves soaking wet.
Hiking in the rain, that is, as the Daily Mail reported. Mochrie even stripped off at a waterfall after they were caught in a summer storm.
At the time, Parker told The Sun: “Yeah we met on set.
