Ryan Thomas was allegedly seen cuddling and 'nuzzling' the neck of actress Zaraah Abrahams after the 2022 National Television Awards.
Former Coronation Street star Ryan, 38, was reportedly seen embracing EastEnders star Zaraah, 35, after the awards ceremony, reports The Sun.
Ryan, who is engaged to former TOWIE star Lucy Mecklenburgh, and Zaraah were allegedly seen hugging at an afterparty as they had a catch up, and the photos obtained by The Sun claim to show Zaraah and Ryan embracing.
An onlooker, who attended the afterparty, said: "Ryan and Zaraah bumped into each other at the party and seemed to be getting on like a house on fire, chatting and catching up.
“Ryan was inviting Zaraah to come to his house with her family. They were laughing together, and he was looking at something on her phone.
“Then he pulled her in for an affectionate cuddle. The drinks had been flowing all night, and he was obviously caught up in the moment," the insider told The Sun.
Recalling the soap stars' exchange, the source added: “Afterwards they were laughing together again. It was clear they had known each other for some time, as Ryan was heard telling her, ‘You know me so well’. He then went on to tell her, ‘You know what I’m like.’ It was all very playful.”
A spokesperson for Zaraah told The Sun: “Zaraah and Ryan have been good mates for over 20 years and were just catching up as they haven’t seen each other for quite some time. It’s nothing more than that.”
