Are Heartstopper stars Joe Locke and Kit Connor dating in real life?

We’re days away from the release of Heartstopper on Netflix, and we can hardly contain our excitement! Many of us are ready to see the beautiful love story unfold between the two main leads, Joe Locke and Kit Connor.

Heartstopper follows two young teens (Charlie and Nick) who couldn’t be more different, meet, become friends, and fall in love. Of course, their blossoming romance comes with conflict and drama. Almost every love story does. But will Charlie and Nick overcome every obstacle thrown their way and be together? We’ll find out when Heartstopper drops on Netflix on April 22.

After watching the trailer, we can already tell that we’re going to absolutely enjoy watching the original series. It’s heartfelt and will easily remind you of your own first love. Actors Joe Locke and Kit Connor also seem to have great chemistry. But are they dating in real life? We answered this burning question right below!

Are Heartstopper’s Joe Locke and Kit Connor dating?

I hate to break it to you, Charlie and Nick shippers, but it doesn’t look like Joe Locke and Kit Connor are dating in real life. They are just co-stars and friends. If you want to see them together as a couple, you’ll have to watch them as their characters in Heartstopper.

Joe’s relationship status is unknown. It seems that he prefers to keep his personal life private. If you scroll through his Instagram page, you won’t find any photos of a boyfriend or a girlfriend. However, there were rumors that he was dating his Heartstopper co-star Sebastian Croft.

As reported by CelebwikiCorner, fans noticed that Joe and Sebastian had posted the most pictures with each other out of all the Heartstopper cast. Some of the photos were intimate leading people to believe they were dating. One of the photos that fans are talking about is a picture of Joe and Sebastian embracing and another photo is of them wearing matching jackets. Neither Joe nor Sebastian has come out and spoken about their relationship status, so we’re going to have to believe that they aren’t dating.

Who is Kit Connor dating?

It appears that Kit is single. Like his fellow co-star, Kit seems to like to keep his personal life out of the public eye. He’s never made his relationship status public nor has there been any rumors swirling around about who he’s dated in the past. So we’ll just have to believe he’s single until proven otherwise.
