4th October 2020

EASTENDERS legend Tamzin Outhwaite has revealed she's happy and living in the moment now she's with her toyboy love Tom Child.

The actress, 49, and the cameraman who is 21 years her junior, were just looking for a bit of fun when they first began dating, but it developed into something much more.

Tamzin told the Mirror: “It was meant to just be a fling. Then it went from being a fling to, ‘I don’t want to be away from you’.

“For one of the first times in my life I’m living in the moment and not worrying about what’s going to happen, which is lovely.

“I think the age gap forces us to do that a bit more, because there’s nothing we desperately need from each other."

The star added that they are in no rush to have children of their own , so they're able to focus on what they have together rather than strive for a perfect future.

Just days ago Tamzin praised Tom Child, 29, for looking after her children while she works.

The actress, who has Florence, 12, and Marnie, eight, with ex-husband Tom Ellis, recently returned to work after six months amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

The TV star took to Instagram to thank her boyfriend for making her work-life balance "so much more doable" in a gushing post.

Tamzin wrote alongside a picture of her other half: "This kind, funny, patient, talented, loving, dynamic & hot man makes my daily juggle so much more doable and so much more fun….

"As I left the house for work at 6am, I then got a call from my 8 yr old crying & asking where I was."

She added: "@tc_childie gave her cuddles, made her breakfast & lunch for school, all ready for @ginger_appreciator to take over the school run…

"I worry that the last 6 months of me being at home with my girls has given them a false sense of security, that I will always be home now. I need to work…

"I love my job. But I could not do it without this support network. @tc_childie I love you so very much.

"@ginger_appreciator you have always been my right hand woman & I love you too. #ittakesavillage #backtowork #thejuggleisreal #wouldbelostwithoutyou #luckygirl" (sic).

Tamzin has dated Tom for two years after meeting at a yoga class and hit out at those thinking she was "having a midlife crisis" dating someone 20 years her junior.

She said in January: "People think I’m having a midlife crisis, but not all men want a younger woman.

“Tom’s very good for my mental and physical health. He reminds me to just breathe if I’m not having a great time. And he reminds me to sweat, to work out, because it makes you feel better.

"We exercise together. We met years before we went on a date. Our eyes met across a crowded yoga studio, and we’ve been together for more than two years now.

"We have a lovely time. It’s comfortable and we make each other happy.

"I'm living in the now and not worrying about it because I don’t have to, as there’s nothing we desperately want or need from each other."

Tamzin divorced Miranda star Tom Ellis, 41, father to her two daughters, in 2014 after he reportedly cheated on her with Lost actress Emilie de Ravin, 38.

In an interview with Prima mag, she also defended being a cougar.

She said: “There’s Helena Bonham Carter and Joan Collins with younger men, so I’m in really lovely company."
