Bridgerton star Simone Ashley has confirmed her relationship with boyfriend Tino Klein by sharing a sweet photo taken of them together.

The 27-year-old took to Instagram on Tuesday to share the cosy snap, having previously only teased their romance while celebrating his birthday after Christmas.

The loved-up post showed Ashley leaning in for a kiss with her other half, who is the CEO of the GP Ice Race, taken in February at Netflix’s BAFTA Awards afterparty at Chiltern Firehouse.

While it’s unclear how long the couple have been dating, it was previously reported that they met in Monaco while attending the F1 Grand Prix.

After sharing the post, the star was indunated with gushing comments from friends and followers, with one writing: “This is the cutest thing I’ve ever seen”.

While another fan penned: “Love this! What a beautiful couple, so happy for you”.

“I'm so glad to see you so happy! You deserve the greatest happiness! Very happy for you Simone,” a third added.

The actress is best known for playing Kate Sharma in regency-inspired Netflix drama Bridgerton as well as Olivia Hanan in Sex Education.


Previously, the Mail on Sunday revealed that Ashley was dating coffee brand manager Luke Richardson, but their two-year relationship ended after she moved to Los Angeles for her screen career.

In the past, Ashley credited Bridgerton and her character for helping her mental health after a break-up.

The Surrey-born star said: “I was going through a break-up in 2019 to 2020, just before I got Bridgerton, and I wasn’t taking care of myself. I was being so hard on myself.”

It is unclear if she was describing her split from Richardson, which was thought to have been in 2017, or a split from a subsequent partner.
