X Factor Celebrity: Jonny Labey on Louis Walsh as his mentor
EastEnders’ Jonny Labey, 30, best known for playing Paul Coker on the BBC soap, has confirmed he is in a relationship with Hollywood actress Hannah Amin.
Hannah is a dancer and actress from the UK who appeared in the much anticipated 2019 film adaptation of Cats alongside huge stars Taylor Swift, Idris Elba, Dame Judi Dench and James Corden.
The recent update has been the first since Jonny split with his fiancée Crissy Brooke.
The soap star updated his followers by posting photos of a mini-spa break with the Cats star. The EastEnders actor uploaded a snap with the pair in robes.
Underneath the picture, Jonny wrote: “How the other half live… we’re happy we got robes and a choice of flip flops or slippers!”
Hannah commented: “Cosy cosy.”
Jonny left Albert Square in 2016 and went on to judge CBBC talent show The Next Step but admitted he wished he’d stayed on EastEnders.
Speaking about his character (Paul) being killed off, Johnny told Express.co.uk: “It wasn’t my choice, but I’m a big believer in everything happens for a reason.
“It’s sad as I was just getting into it and he’s [Paul] just sort of arrived and started to get interesting.”
The actor added: “Like any other job, it’s always about the bigger picture and all you can do is do the part justice.”

During his time on the show, Jonny’s character Paul engaged in a funeral parlour sex scene with Walford resident Ben Mitchell – played by Harry Reid.
The scene itself resulted in 48 complaints to Ofcom. Previously speaking to us, Johnny said: “I have a lot of gay friends and I feel that in the gay community, there’s no homophobia but when you spread it to the wider community, you’re going to get those responses.
“We get the pages and we do the best that we can with them. We think about what we’ve come from and we deal with; it’s not a sense of taking the negative comments and fighting back to them.”
