Rebecca: It’s complicated

Rebecca Breeds has revealed when she met her Romeo Luke Mitchell, it was love at first sight – but because the pair work together, they took things slowly.

The Home and Away beauty, who plays Ruby Buckton, confessed she was instantly smitten with 25-year-old hunk Luke, who plays Romeo Smith, but she made him wait six months before they started dating to be sure it would work at work.

Rebecca revealed in a web chat with fans on the Home and Away website: “We’d liked each other since the moment we met but waited a good six months to date so we could really build a friendship and be sure, because work makes everything a little complicated.”

But the 23-year-old actress insists it was worth the wait.

She said: “Our first date was beautiful… it was very exciting. We went for lunch and to the beach.”

Rebecca, lives with co-star Tessa James, who plays Nicole Franklin on the show.

Asked who she spends the most time with on set, she revealed: “It’s a close call between my room mate Tessa and my boyfriend Luke.”

She really is a smitten kitten…

Luke scores Torso of the Week!

Stars of some of the UK’s home-grown soaps might be busy celebrating after last night’s TV Choice Awards bash, but there’s no doubt about it: today’s true winners have to be fans of Home and Away’s Luke Mitchell (aka Romeo Smith).

Barely a week’s gone by since we revealed that the Summer Bay hunk had been pitted against True Blood’s Stephen Moyer in the battle to be crowned Torso of the Week, with the winner set to grace the pages of Heat magazine.

It was down to readers to decide who made the grade, and Home and Away fans have spoken. The real-life Romeo saw off the competition to win the public vote, and appears in the latest issue of Heat – shirtless, of course!
