TRACY Beaker Lol Plakova star Ciaran Joyce is dating The Queen’s Nose actress Lucinda Dryzek.
The pair starred in two of the most popular BBC children’s programmes of all time in the early 2000s.
Ciaran, 34, played loveable Lol Plakova in The Story of Tracy Beaker – which aired on our screens between 2002 to 2006 – from 2003 to 2006.
Lol, who was Bouncer’s younger brother, lived in the Dumping Ground between series all the way from series three to five.
Lucinda, 30, took on the role of Gemma in final series of The Queen’s Nose in the 2003.
After The Story of Tracy Beaker ended, some of our favourite characters came back in a spin-off called Tracy Beaker Returns.
The show lasted for three series between 2010 and 2013.
Another spin-off called The Dumping Ground then aired between 2013 to 2018.
And most recently, Dani Harmer reprised her role as Tracy in My Mum Tracy Beaker, which premiered earlier this year.
The Queen’s Nose, which was focused on the novel of the same name written by Dick King-Smith, was around between 1995 and 2003.
In the show a girl is given a magical coin and all her dreams come true…
And 18 years on after their stints on the shows, the two appear to have fallen for each other.
It is not known exactly how they met or how long they have been an item.
Lucinda first appeared on Ciaran’s Instagram grid back in May this year.
The actor posted an adorable black and white snap of the pair together at Walberswick Beach.
Meanwhile Ciaran made his first appearance on Lucinda’s profile on Christmas day 2020.
Since then the pair have loved sharing cute couples pictures on their social media.
They’ve enjoyed days out to the Devils Punch Bowl in Surrey, a relaxing staycation near Norwich and also jetted off to Spain together.
Most recently they documented their stay at The Pig Hotel in West Sussex.
Ciaran shared a selection of pictures from their stay with the caption: “A perfect time. A perfect person (@littlelucyd). A perfect place. Nobody does it as good as @the_pig_hotels. Diolch. X.”
Since his stint on the much-loved show, he starred in a number of other TV programmes.
He played Alex Ellis in Holby City, Boris in Young Dracula and Robbie in After You’ve Gone.
Back in 2017 the star also appeared in the musical Les Miserables.
Meanwhile Lucinda has also kept in the limelight.
She’s arguably also most known for Katy Riley in The Life of Riley from 2009 to 2011.
Most recently she starred in The Twilight Zone as Katherine Langford.
