Michelle Keegan has rekindled rumours she is stepping out with Mark Wright after pictures emerged showing the pair looking cosy in a nightclub.

The Coronation Street actress, who split from The Wanted's Max George last year, was photographed arm-in-arm with the former The Only Way Is Essex star when they bumped into each other over New Year in Dubai, and another picture appears to show them locking lips.

An onlooker at the party at the Atlantis Palm Hotel told The Daily Mirror: "If they weren't deep in conversation, they were arm in arm and kissing."

However, it seems the pair are not officially an item yet.

A source said: "They are getting very close and have hit it off to say the least. I wouldn't say they were officially dating but they're clearly very fond of one another.

"You could certainly call it a holiday romance."

According to The Sun, Michelle and Mark - who first met through friends several months ago - were also spotted enjoying sushi together at a restaurant in Dubai.
