Christine McGuinness and Duncan James looked very cosy as they enjoyed a dinner date out in Liverpool on Wednesday.
The Real Housewives of Cheshire star, 35, and the Blue singer, 45, enjoyed a cocktail at Ten Streets Social in the city centre.
Duncan gave her a supportive arm as they walked into the venue, as they were later spotted snuggling up together on a bench outside.
The hunk had his arm around the blonde beauty as she placed her hand affectionately on his knee.
However just last month Christine shut down romance rumours between the two after they went on a ‘date’ together.

She took to Instagram to explain: ‘You know it’s a good night when you don’t take any photos. Loads of you are saying “Oh we’re so happy for you” that I was on a date.
‘It was my mate, Duncan’s my friend. Duncan’s got a gorgeous partner and I love them both. But yeah, I was only taking the p**s when I said I was on a date.
‘I don’t like dates, I don’t do dates absolutely not. My voice keeps going I was talking all night. I laughed so much it was a really good night.’
The reality star looked stunning on another outing with Duncan, as she donned a sporty playsuit with a low scoop neck to show off her ample cleavage.
She was dressed for the sunny weather in the revealing ensemble, as she accessorised her blonde tresses with a stylish headband.
Duncan, who has been dating Brazilian photographer Rodrigo Reis since 2019, looked very casual in a teal T-Shirt with Brooklyn written on it, which he paired with loose denim jeans.
Duncan, who shares 16-year-old daughter Tianie with former girlfriend Claire Grainger, previously publicly identified as bisexual in a newspaper interview in 2009 but later came out as gay in 2012 to his fellow Blue band member Simon Webbe.
Christine and Duncan starred together on ITV’s The Real Full Monty in 2021.
She joked last month: ‘Me and this person when we first met spent our whole time naked together.’

Revealing all: It comes after Christine shut down romance rumours last month
It comes after Christine sizzled in a very busty hot pink bikini during a sun-soaked family holiday to Spain with her estranged husband Paddy.
The model and the presenter, 49, announced their split in June of last year, after 11 years of marriage, but have continued living together for their three children, who all have autism.
Turning up the heat on Tuesday, Christine showed off her gym-honed abs and bronzed legs in the tiny two-piece while posing for some Instagram photos.
The TV personality kicked back on a giant inflatable flamingo in the pool before drying off on a sun lounger.
Elsewhere, Paddy shared a funny clip to his account as he carried the inflatables through the rain for his, twins Leo and Penelope, eight, and Felicity, five.
Alongside the update, Christine wrote: ‘Lovely family holiday. Loads of you have asked how the kiddies got on (it’s their first trip abroad in 4 years, they don’t really enjoy travel or change) but with lots of prep and patience they done incredibly well and have absolutely loved it! Very very proud mummy.’
On his own post Paddy added: ‘Fantastic family holiday in Spain. Apart from the clouds… and the rain… oh and the inflatables! I was the only tool carrying these around in the piss rain!’
Sharing a photo from the airport, Christine was seen pushing children’s toys on a luggage trolley and wrote: ‘This holiday is extra special’.

Last month, Christine opened up on her unusual living arrangement with her ex-husband Paddy, admitting ‘I don’t know life without him’.
However, they have revealed they have remained living together with their kids in an effort to protect them.
Talking to OK! magazine, Christine spoke about the arrangement, saying she didn’t know how long it would last.
She said: ‘It’s certainly not a long-term or forever plan. It works right now because we’re both so busy and we’re in and out of the home so we tend to swap days and we’ll share.
‘It’s much like any parent really – juggling jobs and children. We definitely don’t want to upset them or change anything too quickly, and for me as well.
‘I like slow changes, and we’re alright – we’re family. I’ve known Paddy for 15 years, so I don’t know life without him. It is what it is.’
She added: ‘He’s happy that I’ve found a place I’m comfortable in. He was very proud of my book and my documentary. He watched it and he loved it, and said he was really pleased that not only was I working but I was making a big difference as well.
‘It’s good he’s supportive because I need him to be. I need to be able to leave happily knowing the children are being looked after and safe. It’s partnership and teamwork.’
