EastEnders lovebirds Jacqueline Jossa and Tony Discipline make it official with their first red carpet appearance

By Emily Sheridan

Date night: EastEnders co-stars and real-life couple Tony Discipline and Jacqueline Jossa at the European premiere of Wrath of the Titans last night

They've been quietly dating since last year after falling for each other on the set of EastEnders.

But last night, soap couple Jacqueline Jossa and Tony Discipline made their romance official with their first red carpet appearance.

The actors posed at the European premiere of Wrath Of The Titans at London's BFI Imax.

Jossa, 19, showed off her slim figure in a navy French Connection Ribbon Knits dress, while Discipline, 22, looked dapper in a grey suit.

Their smart outfits are a far cry from their soap characters' more relaxed wardrobe.

Jossa has played teen rebel Lauren Branning since September 2010, while Discipline is a relative newcomer to the show after joining last June to play Tyler Moon.

Meet and greet: The young couple signed autographs for fans outside the IMAX

In a recent interview, she admitted she had briefly met Discipline before he joined the cast in a nightclub.

She told The Sun: 'Tony came up and said he was auditioning for EastEnders. I didn't believe him, though when I walked back to my mates, I was like, "Did you see his teeth?! He's well fit."

'But I left it. I didn't think he was going to join EastEnders. He even added me on Facebook and I deleted him!

Hard to get: Jossa admitted she initially ignored Discipline's advances

'Then a couple of months later, I came into work and there he was. I called my cousin and said, "Do you remember Fit Boy? He is in the building."

'We didn't get together for ages, as we thought it'd be weird on set, but it got to the point where there was no other option.

'We kept it a secret at first, but everyone was like, "Oh, we knew."'

At work: The pair's characters Tyler and Lauren had a brief fling
