Home and Away's Ada Nicodemou and James Stewart rumoured to be dating

Hopefully they don't have the same run of bad luck as Leah and Justin do.

Home and Away stars Ada Nicodemou and James Stewart's characters Leah and Justin recently tied the knot in Summer Bay and it appears the romance has spilt over in real life, with The Sunday Telegraph revealing on the weekend that the pair have been dating.

The news comes after it was announced James and ex-wife Sarah Roberts had quietly divorced at some stage in the last year, while Ada's relationship with Sydney businessman Adam Rigby ended late last year.

While their reps didn't respond to the publication's article, The Sunday Telegraph reports that the romance first sparked late last year when Ada and James were seen kissing at a Seven Network Christmas Party. The couple have also recently been spotted at the movies holding hands amongst other public displays of affection.

"They weren't really hiding it," a fan told the publication. “They were holding hands and he touched her bottom numerous times. There was nothing platonic about it.”

In a recent interview with Stellar magazine, former Home and Away star Sarah Roberts opened up about her split from James, saying she was initially afraid to share the news due to "stigma and shame".

“I hid for a very long time. There were times when I didn’t feel like I could see the light or a way out of these big, complex emotions that I was feeling. But I hope that by just being honest today, I’ll free myself, and potentially free a lot of other people, to be able to speak their truth," she said of the end of their five-year marriage.


Sarah revealed the couple had grown apart and that was "okay". "'Sometimes people grow apart and that's okay... I got to a point where I realised I couldn't grow in the way I wanted to within this particular relationship," she said.
