Ned Porteous: Emmerdale’s Joe Tate’s ‘girlfriend’ REVEALED as star cosies up to actress

Former Emmerdale star Ned Porteous, 24, has reportedly found love with actress Lucy Heath, with the pair currently spending time together in US. An insider told The Sun: “It’s early days but Ned is really enjoying dating Lucy. Ned usually likes to keep his love life private but has been taking Lucy to various events both in London and LA. They have loads in common with their acting work and make a great looking couple – it’s just Ned’s fan who are gutted!”

A source has contacted a representative for Ned for comment.

Ned seemingly confirmed the news on his Instagram page by sharing a cosy picture of the pair.

The actor is seen with his arms wrapped round Lucy, who was sat between his legs during a trip in California.

Ned shared the picture in view of his 120,000 followers with a simple romantically inclined emoji.

The snap prompted many of his social media fans to comment, with one writing: “I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. Cute.”

A second commented: “OMG you two are adorable,” while a third added: “Lucky girl! X”

Lucy starred in comedy drama Mating Call in 2017 and Stretching The Play last year.

The actress has also shared cosy snaps of her and Ned, with her most being of them enjoying a night out together earlier this week.

Ned was pictured with his arm around the brunette beauty while she pulled an excited face to the camera.

Elsewhere on the Dales, Ned’s character Joe was believed to have been killed off before returning to the soap for a cameo last month.

But it appears as though he won’t be making a full return with an ITV spokesperson telling at the time: “There are no current plans for the character of Joe Tate to return after last night’s episode.”

Ned previously hinted he left the soap to set his sights on working in America, revealing he has a management team across the pond.

He told the publication: “I want to try my hand with the American casting system and then go on a little holiday.

“I will turn my phone off, go climbing, go camping, go fishing.”

This Morning’s soap expert Sharon Marshall previously claimed Joe will not be coming back to the ITV soap.

Emmerdale continues tonight at 7pm on ITV.
