After parting ways with her ex-fiance, Dave Fairbairn, four years ago, EastEnders great Gillian Taylforth is said to have “found love again.”
According to reports, the Kathy Beale actress and Philip Oag, 59, have been dating for at least a year.
Philip, who is head of operations at cosmetic clinic The Cranley Clinic in London, has apparently moved into the EastEnders stalwart’s house.
New photos acquired by The Sun show the couple enjoying a stroll together, with Gillian choosing to dress in a camel-colored coat in the brisk sunshine and Philip donning a jacket and polo shirt.
They looked in high spirits as they spent time together in Hertfordshire.

The couple is doing well, according to a source who told the newspaper that Gillian is “head over heals” for Philip and that they have been discreetly dating for more than a year and that he has even moved into her house. Everyone is really happy for her.
has requested a response from Gillian’s agents.
Following the cancellation of her wedding to Dave Fairbairn in 2019, six years after they started dating, Gillian moved on to a new romance.
Rocky Cotton (Brian Conley), the new husband of on-screen character Kathy, has struggled with her because he did not disclose to her that he was already married before they were married.
When Jo Cotton (Vicki Michelle) showed up and confessed everything at the couple’s reception, it produced complete mayhem and culminated to a major cat fight between the two ladies.
Jo didn’t stop there, either, and eventually demanded £50,000 to keep Rocky’s identity a secret.
After paying off Jo, Kathy and Rocky are now struggling financially. After Ian Beale (Adam Woodyatt) evicted them from their home, their situation only became worse.
Rocky has started gambling, fully unknowing of Kathy, as a result of mounting loan payments and the couple’s need for a home.
Could things be about to grow worse for them with a fire expected to ravage Kathy’s cherished café in the coming weeks?
