It sounds likes Kara Tointon has a new love interest. The former EastEnders actress, who was best known for playing Dawn Swann on the soap, has been spotted enjoying a string of romantic dates with TV presenter Matt Johnson.

Kara, 31, and Matt, 32, were recently seen at a West London pub together, and according to sources, the pair seemed to only have eyes for each other.

"They looked very close, touching each other, and Matt put his arm around her at one point," a source told The Mirror. "They held hands as they walked. They looked very loved-up."

Kara previously dated Strictly Come Dancing's Artem Chigvintsev for four years

Kara's most recent high-profile relationship was with professional dancer Artem Chigvintsev. Kara and Artem, who were together for four years, met on Strictly Come Dancing when they were paired up together and danced to victory.

The couple confirmed their romance in January 2011 but split in 2014 because of the Russian dancer's visa issues, which kept them apart for months.
