Jenna Coleman's love life from co-star ex to Sandman director rumours

Netflix's highly anticipated new drama series is set to air today (August 5).

The Sandman is an adaption of Neil Gaiman's graphic novel series and stars Tom Sturridge and Jenna Coleman.

The new Netflix series is the latest endeavour in Jenna's vastly successful career.

The actress first rose to fame starring on Emmerdale as Jasmine Thomas, before moving on to appear in Waterloo Road.

Since then, she's gone from strength-to-strength.

In 2012 she made her debut as Clara Oswald on Doctor Who and recently she played one of the leads in ITV series Victoria and Netflix series The Serpent.

While Jenna has had a prominent on-screen life, she's kept her personal life more of a mystery.

Here's everything we know about her love life.

Are Jenna Coleman and Tom Hughes still a couple?

Jenna started dating fellow actor Tom Hughes in 2016 while they worked together on the set of period drama Victoria.

Tom played Prince Albert in the TV series, while Jenna played Queen Victoria.

The on-screen couple took their relationship off-screen and dated for four years.

However, in 2020 it was reported that the pair had split after Jenna was spotted moving into her own apartment.

A source told The Sun: "Both Tom and Jenna are terribly sad, but the relationship ran its course. There was no third party involved."

Rumours were sparked last year that she was back together with Tom after she was spotted leaving his home.

The Daily Mail reported that locals had claimed Jenna had been "coming and going from the property frequently".

But it looks as though nothing came of it, as the pair never confirmed that they had got back together.

Since her split from Tom, Jenna has kept pretty quiet about her dating life.

But it was reported earlier this year that the actress is dating a director working on her current Netflix series.

Coleman was spotted in February on a romantic stroll with Jamie Childs, who is directing The Sandman and has previously worked on Doctor Who.

The couple looked happy together as they walked hand-in-hand in Islington.

They were first rumoured to be dating back in December.

Who else has Jenna Coleman dated?

Tom isn't the only fellow actor that Jenna has dated; she was also previously in a relationship with Scottish actor and The Bodyguard star Richard Madden.

The pair began dating in 2012, while Richard was starring in Game of Thrones.

The following year, Jenna secured her iconic role on Doctor Who, leaving superfan Richard impressed.

He told Vulture about visiting Jenna on set, saying: “I mean, I’ve watched Doctor Who since I was a kid. I loved it, and I still love it. I can geek out about it, like when I go to set and see the TARDIS."

They went on to have an on and off relationship until 2015, when the pair split for good after reports that Richard had been getting close to his Cinderella co-star Lily James.
