TALK OF THE TOWN: Imogen Poots moves into McMafia star boyfriend James Norton’s Peckham pad

They are one of the most glamorous couples from the world of stage and screen.
Now I can reveal that Imogen Poots and James Norton have taken their relationship to the next level by moving in together, although they have hardly chosen the most glamorous corner of London in which to settle down.
The 30-year-old actress has moved into the McMafia star’s pad in Peckham, the South-East London suburb made famous by Del Boy and Rodney in the classic BBC comedy Only Fools And Horses.
Imogen and James can be spotted pootling around the now-trendy neighbourhood on their bikes.
A friend tells me: ‘They have been dating now for two years but were getting tired of having a long- distance relationship. James has been settled for a while in Peckham, while Imogen was splitting her time between London and New York.
‘They are much happier with their new set-up.’

The couple met when they co-starred in the West End production of Belleville at the Donmar Warehouse in 2017, and began dating soon after Norton split from Chernobyl actress Jessie Buckley.
They made their red carpet debut as a pair at the 2018 Cannes Film Festival.
Peckham is a far cry from their affluent upbringings. Imogen grew up in West London and was privately educated at Latymer Upper School, while James, 34, went to boarding school in the idyllic North Yorkshire countryside.

The Granchester and Little Women star may soon have to swap his modest bicycle for an Aston Martin as he has been tipped to become the next James Bond.
Imogen has just earned rave reviews for her latest project, the dark thriller Vivarium, in which she stars alongside Jesse Eisenberg.
The pair rarely talk about their relationship, but Imogen broke ranks last month, saying the long-distance element of their relationship was ‘all I’ve ever known’.
‘I’ve never known something to fall apart because of distance,’ she added. Sharing a bathroom, however, is quite another matter.
