Former EastEnders actress said to be smitten with dancer Bowen Perrin

Letitia Dean is rumoured to be secretly seeing a dancer 17 years her junior.

The 40-year-old former EastEnders actress – who played Sharon Watts in the BBC soap – met Bowen Perrin, 23, when they performed together in panto 6 months ago.

And insiders say the 17-year age difference isn’t a problem.

‘Tish and Bo are in a serious relationship’, a source tells the News Of The World.

‘There may be the age gap but Tish is the first to admit that you’re only as old as the person you feel. Bo was one of the dancers in Cinderella – now he’s Tish’s Prince Charming.’

Letitia, 40, is currently playing Miss Darbus in the West End production of High School Musical.

But it’s not her first relationship with a younger man. Last year she enjoyed a fling with 20-year-old stagehand Alex Lillyman.

She split from her husband of 5 years Jason Pethers, 40, in 2006.
