Emmerdale actor Joe Warren-Plant, 16, regularly shares cosy snaps of him and his girlfriend Nicole Hadlow on his Instagram page. Back in August, Joe gushed over his partner on their one-year anniversary. He shared a cosy snap of the pair with their arms around each other in view of his 38,000 followers, commenting: “1 Year Today. I look forward to making even more memories with you right by my side I love you.”
He also praised his girlfriend in a tribute on her birthday, writing: “Happy Birthday to my beautiful girl.
“The past year has been a dream with you and I wish to spend many more right by your side. I love you so much.”
Joe regularly gives an insight into the couple’s holidays, with the pair recently enjoying time in Ibiza and Blackpool.
Joe’s most recent upload shows the pair dressed up on an evening out together in Preston.
The actor opted for a black suit and bow-tie, while Nicole wore an elegant blue dress.
Elsewhere, Joe’s on-screen character Jacob is currently at the centre of a grooming storyline.
The 16-year-old has been abused by his teacher Maya Stepney (played by Louisa Clein, 40), who is also dating his stepdad David Metcalfe (Matthew Wolfenden).
Jacob recently split with girlfriend Liv Flaherty (Isobel Steele), who has so far been unaware of his relationship with Maya.
Earlier this week, viewers saw Jacob become emotional as he told Maya he couldn’t lie about their illicit relationship anymore.
After Jacob called things off, David found Maya in tears, unaware of what she was crying about.
Maya later found Jacob to tell him that she was prepared to let everyone know so they could be together.
She said to him: “I will break up with David, you can end it with Liv.
“When you’ve finished your GCSEs and finished school we can be together properly.”
Off camera, Louisa recently shared her thoughts on playing the controversial role.
Discussing filming the intimate moments with Joe, she told What’s On TV: “It is difficult, but Joe is a joy to work with and he’s so mature for his age.
“Of course it’s awkward, but the scriptwriters are very sensitive to that, as are the directors and producers.
“We’re all very conscious of not making it [the scenes] sexually titillating. Any form of intimacy doesn’t need to be sexy.
“It’s about the implied emotional intimacy, which is the creepy bit in a way.”
Emmerdale continues tonight at 8pm on ITV.
