    The good-looking couple, who were first spotted together in October, are thought to have called time on their relationship, after they sadly ‘drifted’ due to their hectic careers. 

    A source told the paper:  ‘Things were great for a time and they were getting serious – but it just wasn’t to be and busy schedules drove them apart.

    ‘They’ve drifted and things have cooled off but there are no hard feelings. Aidan’s incredibly busy with his career and Nettie’s art is really taking off so they had a lot on their plates.’

    Proving to still be on good terms however, the insider added: ‘It’s all very amicable.’

    MailOnline has contacted representatives of Aidan for comment. 

    Aidan and Nettie, who is an up and coming artist, were first romantically linked in late 2016 – after they were spotted enjoying a passionate lip-lock over dinner in October.

    While they went on to enjoy a string of dates around London, including one at Scott’s in Mayfair, the pair have not been seen together in months, fuelling initial rumours of a split.

    As one of Britain’s main heartthrobs, Aidan has embarked on a number of romances in recent times. 

    One month prior to his first appearance with Nettie, the Irish actor had been spotted smooching another pretty brunette in the West End, who was later revealed as high-flying executive Tara Derakshan. 

    The flings followed his long-term relationship with fellow actress Sarah Greene, 32, who he split from two years ago.

    Aidan and Sarah dated for almost five years, with the Poldark star even hinting at a move to New York to be closer to the actress.

    However the pair split in November 2015, with the Being Human star refusing to offer any details of the split or the reasons behind it.

    Yet, BBC star Aidan appeared to make a dig at his former flame earlier this year – when he vowed to avoid dating a fellow actor in the future.

    Having now clearly moved on from his acting ex, he said: ‘If you’re in my business and you find somebody who does exactly what you do and you’re living with them, then you’re in the business all the time.

    ‘You go home, talk about casting directors, you talk about the press, you talk about the next job you’re doing – it can become quite dull and taxing.’

    He added: ‘There’s nothing like going out with somebody who doesn’t even care what you’re doing, let alone have anything to say about it. Because then it boils down to what the real things are, you know?’

    Proving there was no hard feelings between the two however, the Burnt star previously told Goss.ie that she ‘would love to work’ with the Aidan earlier this year.
