The couple who have been together since late 2021 have kept from posting too often on social media. 

A source said: ‘Danny is smitten with Maddi but wanted to keep the relationship low profile.

‘It’s still early days but they enjoyed spending Christmas together and pals believe they’ll get even more serious. Everyone is chuffed to bits for them as they get on so well.’ 

Maddi, who is a data analyst and sells her own artwork, starred on Channel 4 series Shipmates in 2019, where she took part in epic pool parties onboard a luxury cruise liner around the Med.

The show was labelled ‘Love Island on a ship’ and received mixed reviews from critics, including one which branded the show ‘a ghastly tableau of sun, sex and swollen genitals.’

Maddi’s five-person team, made up of close pals, competed against a rival group in a series of tasks in a bid to gain votes from 1,500 party-loving passengers to be crowned the ship’s most popular team – and win a holiday to Bali.

In the opening episode, tattooed Maddi openly discusses her breasts, revealing she has a collection of moles around her nipples which she refers to as ‘the solar system.’

Danny left EastEnders in 2020 when his character Keanu emigrated to Spain following his fling with Sharon Watts, which resulted in their birth of youngest son Albie, behind her partner Phil Mitchell’s back.

Keanu had also just fathered daughter Peggy with Louise Mitchell, Sharon’s stepdaughter.

Sharon blamed Keanu for the death of her son Denny, when Phil, eager for revenge, threw the mechanic against the wheel of a party boat on the River Thames causing it to crash, claiming the life of her beloved child.

However, viewers later discovered Sharon’s close friend Ian Beale had locked Denny inside room below deck before the crash and was unable to escape alive.
