Inside Hollywood actor Ben Hardy and ex EastEnders star Jessica Plummer’s romantic holiday in Turkey | The Sun

THEY grew close last summer as they filmed The Girl Before and it seems Ben Hardy and Jessica Plummer’s romance has gone from strength to strength.

The loved-up couple have just returned from a holiday in Turkey to belatedly celebrate Ben’s 31st birthday.


The actor, who played Ian Beale’s son Peter on EastEnders, shared a series of snaps from their trip as they stayed in an exclusive villa together.

In the pictures the couple are seen messing about in the water, enjoying delicious food and going for boat rides.

At one point a cake arrives for Ben and Jessica can be heard singing for him while he looks embarrassed.

He captioned the shots: “The best fake birthday holiday I’ve ever had 😎#clubprivebyrixosgocek #rixosmoments #rixospremiumgocek #göcek #rixoshotels.”
