Danniella seemed to be in a playful mood as she pouted while posing alongside Fabrizio, who played Ziggy Roscoe on Hollyoaks from 2013 to 2015.

A source told MailOnline of the pair: 'They arrived together and looked very close'. 

And Fabrizio, who bore more than a passing resemblance to Danniella's ex Alan, has already got his sights set on a role on EastEnders - the soap that kick-started Dannniella's career in the Nineties.

In an exclusive chat with MailOnline, Fabrizio talked about wanting a part on the BBC One soap and how difficult it is to 'crack America'.

The actor also admitted he wasn't aware his co-star had left Hollyoaks, adding: 'Is that why he’s in the jungle? He’s a Mancunian. 

'No offence but he’s no Vinnie Jones. He’s got a Mancunian accent. I can pull off a decent American accent.’ 

Fabrizio and Danniella certainly appeared to be in great spirits as they arrived at Tramp nightclub.
