They even went on to enter a unisex toilet together, according to onlookers.

It’s not the first time the pair have been linked romantically.
Back in November last year, a TV source revealed to MailOnline: ‘Maisie and Zack are very close off-screen, as well as being a married couple in EastEnders.
‘They were the only cast members to share the same cab home together after the soap’s 35th anniversary party.’
‘They couldn’t resist showing their affections for each other, with Maisie tickling the back of Zack’s neck as the left the party’ a second insider added.
