Bridgerton’s Phoebe Dynevor steps out with a male friend… after ‘growing close’ to Pete Davidson

Bridgerton star Phoebe Dynevor was spotted out in Altrincham with a male friend on Saturday after being linked to Ariana Grande’s ex-fiancé Pete Davidson.

The actress, 25, smiled as she strolled down the road with her pal in the Greater Manchester town, amid reports that Pete, 27, flew from NYC to the UK to visit her. 

Phoebe visited The Big Apple, where the SNL star lives, in February, to film the TV series Younger, while Pete was spotted by fans in Altrincham on Sunday.

She was seen wearing a khaki bomber jacket, black jogging bottoms and a tee for the local outing. 

Opting for stylish footwear, the UK-born actress sported black and white trainers and appeared to go make-up free, hiding her green eyes beneath oversized shades. 

Her auburn tresses were swept up in a chic updo, meanwhile her friend kept things casual in a houndstooth jacket and skinny jeans. 

He matched Phoebe with a khaki green T-shirt and framed his face with orange tinted aviators.

It comes after a Facebook page called Altrincham HQ shared an image of Pete wearing sunglasses and a black face covering as he posed with two fans who spotted the American in the UK this weekend. 

The profile claimed Pete is ‘staying over in Altrincham with friends’ and said it was ‘bizarre’ for him to be in the market town. 

In February, Phoebe shared a selection of images to her Instagram profile believed to be taken in Brooklyn, New York, alongside the caption: ‘Grateful I got to be here for a hot sec’ with a love heart emoji. 

The actress was in NYC to film scenes for TV series Younger that she stars in alongside Sutton Foster, 46, and Hilary Duff, 33.

Phoebe’s rep declined to comment to MailOnline when asked about the relationship.  

Pete is the ex-fiancé of superstar Ariana, 27, who he was engaged to for four months until October 2018 when they ended their relationship. 

Ariana later referenced Pete in her song Thank U, Next with the lyric: ‘Even almost got married, and for Pete, I’m so thankful.’  

Phoebe is the daughter of Coronation Street actress Sally Dynevor, 57, who plays Sally Webster, and she first appeared on TV aged 14 with roles in Snatch and later Waterloo Road.

But she rose to prominence in Bridgerton, shooting raunchy love scenes with onscreen husband Rege-Jean Page, 31. 

The show has already been recommissioned for a second series, but Phoebe’s co-star Nicola Coughlan, 34, recently confirmed on Twitter the cast are yet to start filming.

The first became Netflix’s most-watched original series ever after debuting in December with 82million households watching in its first 28 days. 

In January, Phoebe was pictured alongside her mum Sally at a local farmers’ market in Manchester after she moved back home amid the coronavirus lockdown. 

Pete had a relationship with British actress Kate Beckinsale, 47, in 2019, and laughed off criticism over their 20-year age gap.

'Grateful': In February, the actress shared multiple images to Instagram, believed to be taken in New York alongside the caption: 'Grateful I got to be here for a hot sec' with a love heart emoji

He said: ‘It doesn’t really bother us. But then again, I’m new to this. 

‘So if you have questions about a relationship with a big age difference, just ask Leonardo DiCaprio, Jason Statham, Michael Douglas, Richard Gere, Jeff Goldblum, Scott Disick, Bruce Willis, Harrison Ford, Alec Baldwin, Sean Penn, whoever the president of France is, Mel Gibson, Jagger…’ 

Pete also romanced Once Upon A Time In Hollywood actress Margaret Qualley, 26, daughter of Four Weddings and a Funeral’s Andie MacDowell, and last year he dated Cindy Crawford’s daughter Kaia Gerber, 19. 

Phoebe’s last relationship is thought to have been with Skins actor Sean Teale, 28, in 2017.
