Well this has taken an odd turn...

Stephanie Davis has given her biggest hint yet that sheโ€™s got a new man – but things have taken a bizarre turn with speculation surrounding who it could be.

The pregnant actress fuelled talk of a romance over the weekend when she posted a very cosy photo of herself and a mystery fella snuggled up on the sofa with their legs intertwined.

โ€˜Nothing better than family times… House full of people ๐Ÿ’œ so relaxed!โ€™ Steph, 23, captioned the Instagram snap.

โ€˜My baby boy kicking to us. He knows our voices too well, its mummy๐Ÿ˜โ€™

With the picture coming after Steph had previously dropped hints that she might be seeing someone, it really got her fans talking.

โ€˜This new man of yours is definitely good for you if you’re all smiles and happy. Happy Steph, happy baby,โ€™ one admirer commented.

Another wrote: โ€˜Truly hope he is the man you deserve…and you deserve the best.So happy to see you happyโ€ฆโ€™

Whilst some speculated that the man in question is a musician, others thought it was a PGA Golf pro called James McDowall due to the mystery manโ€™s watch being similar to his.

This seemed to confuse Steph, who soon hit out at the rumours on Twitter to clarify that heโ€™s NOT her fella.

โ€˜I do not know who @jamesmcdowall90 is or how I’ve been linked to him. Thank you,โ€™ the former Hollyoaks star Tweeted. Well thatโ€™s that then!

As for James himself, he took it all in good humour.

โ€˜Oh Steph you ruined it! Was fun while it lasted. Prefer blondes anyway,โ€™ he joked on Twitter.

How bizarre! It all comes after Steph – who has named ex-boyfriend Jeremy McConnell as the father of her baby despite his denials – referred to a mystery โ€˜baeโ€™ on Saturday.

The expectant star posted a selfie with some green Halloween make-up on and wrote: โ€˜So bae said.. Let me do a practice makeup for Halloween… If a boy don’t want you to pullโ€ฆโ€™

Speculation about her love life has been going on for quite some time now though and Steph stressed last month that sheโ€™s more focused on her baby boy than anything.

โ€˜I wouldnโ€™t put the relationship anywhere, or in anyoneโ€™s face until weโ€™d been going out for a long time and I was 100 per cent ready to introduce him into my sonโ€™s life,โ€™ she wrote in her OK! column on the topic of dating as a mum.

โ€˜Right now Iโ€™m just enjoying myself though and Iโ€™m happy and thatโ€™s the main thing, but time will tell and weโ€™ll see but right now Iโ€™m really really happy and things couldnโ€™t be going better.โ€™

The mystery continuesโ€ฆ
