Enders' Tony and Jacqueline an item
Tony Discipline and Jacqueline Jossa attended the Wrath Of The Titans premiere together
EastEnders stars Jacqueline Jossa and Tony Discipline stepped out in public together for the first time as they attended the Wrath Of The Titans premiere in London.
The soap stars - whose characters Lauren Branning and Tyler Moon had a brief on-screen fling - began dating last year, but this was their first official event as a couple.
The pair became a real life couple on the set of Albert Square where Jacqueline, 19, has been playing teenage tearaway Lauren since September 2010, and Tony joined last June.
But Jacqueline recently revealed to The Sun she had met Tony before he was cast in the soap, and there was a spark right from the beginning.
She said: "Tony came up and said he was auditioning for EastEnders. I didn't believe him, though when I walked back to my mates, I was like, 'Did you see his teeth?! He's well fit.'
"But I left it. I didn't think he was going to join EastEnders. He even added me on Facebook and I deleted him!
"Then a couple of months later, I came into work and there he was. I called my cousin and said, 'Do you remember Fit Boy? He is in the building'."
She admitted the pair had wanted to keep their relationship low-key at first, as they were wary of dating at work.
She said: "We didn't get together for ages, as we thought it'd be weird on set, but it got to the point where there was no other option.
"We kept it a secret at first, but everyone was like, 'Oh, we knew'."
