Here, Daily Star takes a closer look inside Rob Mallard's relationships.

Daniel Brocklebank

Along with finding fame on Coronation Street, Rob found romance with co-star Daniel Brocklebank, who plays Vicar Billy Mayhew.

The couple dated briefly in 2017, and speaking about Daniel while collecting a British Soap Award, Rob said in his acceptance speech: "Even though this is fantastic, Dan, you’re the best thing I’ve ever taken home."

However, the couple have since split up due to the pressures of working together but still remain close friends.

A source told The Sun's TV column: "It was a lot of pressure for both of them to be working on the same show and going out—in the end something had to give.

"They decided to part ways a couple of weeks ago but they’re still great friends and hope to remain that way."

Ben Perryman

Two months after his break-up with Daniel, Rob began dating Ben Perryman.

The couple confirmed their romance in a sweet Instagram post, as Rob shared a loved up snap of them together.

He captioned the post: "Some people walk into your life at the right time, some people exit your life at the right time, we’re all here for a purpose and that’s to find happiness. You decide what your happiness is."

Fans flocked to the comments section following the happy news, with one saying: ""Congratulations to you both @benperryman so happy for you!"

Ben also gushed over Rob in a social media post after they attended the Coronation Street Christmas party, with Ben saying: "If anyone could teach me how to spell happy all over again it would be him.

"Everything about you is just perfect. Robert Mallard you’re my hero."

However they split in 2019, with the couple confirming in January 2020 that their relationship had reached its "natural end."

A representative for the actor confirmed the news to The Sun, saying: "Rob and Ben are no longer together.

"It was a mutual separation. Both would appreciate privacy in this personal matter."

Romance rumours

The Sun recently reported that Rob had grown close to modelling agent Matthew Martin.

Rob and Matthew have been spotted in sweet Instagram snaps together, alongside Matthew's mum and sister who visited the Coronation Street set tour before Christmas.

A source told The Sun: "Rob seems loved up and it’s so nice to see. It’s like he’s completely smitten.

"Everyone is hoping this relationship is The One because Matthew’s a really nice bloke.

"Rob fits right in with his family and the cast who have met Matthew really like him."

However, neither Rob or Matthew have confirmed that they are in a relationship.
