Emma Barton, 42, is a regular face on our TV screens. Alongside competing on Strictly Come Dancing with veteran professional Anton Du Beke, Emma also plays Honey Mitchell on BBC soap EastEnders. So who has the actress dated in the past?
Emma and Anton have stunned Strictly viewers in recent weeks.
Anton, who has been a regular Strictly professional since the show’s launch in 2004, collapsed to the ground a few weeks ago after receiving his first 10 score in 15 years.
Last weekend, the pair were over the moon as they earned a near perfect 39 points.
But away from the Strictly dance floor, Emma is known to be incredibly private about her personal life.

Who is Emma Barton dating?
Little is known about the soapstar’s current relationship status.
However, the EastEnders actress has been romantically linked to some other celebrities in the past.
Emma was previously married to lawyer Nigel Stoat. The pair married in 2002, but later split in 2005.
Following the split, the Eastenders beauty found love in the arms of hunky police officer Harry Waddington.
He was the brother on one of her co-stars in the West End musical Grease, who is thought to have introduced them.
Then Emma reportedly began a relationship with fellow EastEnders actor Joel Beckett, who played Jake Moon in the soap.
The couple were together for two years and split amicably.

Following the split, Emma was said to be “making the most of being single”.
But in 2008, Emma Barton then went on to meet Britain’s Got More Talent presenter, Stephen Mulhern.
The pair had been starring together in the pantomime, Snow White.
The two reportedly went on to have a relationship but sadly it wasn’t to be.
Emma and Stephen split in 2011, and Stephen said at the time the relationship came to its “natural end”.
A few years ago another fellow EastEnders star Jamie Borthwick, who plays Jay Brown in the soap, told the TV Times he had a crush on Emma since he was 14.
Jamie said: “I was about 14 when I first set eyes on Emma Barton.
“I fell in love with her long, shapely legs and I wanted to marry her.”
Perry Fenwick, who plays Emma’s character’s on-screen ex-husband Billy Mitchell, even encouraged the young actor to chat Emma up.
Jamie said: “I remember walking over to her and saying ‘alright darlin’… wow you smell nice.
“It brought the house down and we still laugh about it now.”
However, Emma later quashed any rumours of a romance, stating he was like “baby brother” to her.
