    She was spotted getting very close to Stranger Things star Charlie Heaton, 23, at the BAFTAs on Sunday.

    And Anna Friel was looking rather sheepish as she stepped out in Windsor on Tuesday to walk her dog, following the eventful night.

    Despite the drama, the 40-year-old appeared to have recovered from the weekend, looking spring-chic in a floral maxi dress as she went on a stroll.

    Opting for a boho look, the former Brookside star looked comfortable in the flowing dress, layering a grey cardigan on top.

    Keen to draw on to her home comforts, Anna wore a pair of fluffy pink slippers on her feet, adding a touch of fun to the ensemble.

    Keeping her make-up to a minimal, she covered her pretty features with a pair of tortoiseshell sunglasses, hiding any weariness from the weekend.

    Her appearance comes after pictures emerged of Anna putting on a cosy dispay with actor Charlie Heaton at the BAFTA awards on Sunday.

    She was seen grabbing her one-time co-stars derriere while draping an arm around the star and enjoying a giggly chat. 

    A source at the event told The Sun: ‘Everyone was a little shocked because he’s so much younger, but there was electric chemistry between them.

    Stranger Things has won huge praise since hitting Netflix earlier this year with the thrilling drama making a star of an array of aspiring talents – including Charlie, who plays 17-year-old Jonathan Byers.

    With Anna being a confirmed international star, Charlie was undoubtedly overjoyed to be in her presence, but fellow stars were likely to be shocked to see the pair getting so close throughout the party.

    Anna was a vision in a white lace gown at the event, which showed off her sensational figure.

    She completed her sophisticated look with a slick of scarlet lipstick and towering black heels – which she had kicked off when she danced the night away with Charlie. 

    Charlie – who is 17 years Anna’s junior – meanwhile looked dapper in a slim fitted dinner suit. 

    Onlookers say the pair were inseparable on the evening, showering each other with smiles, which got tongues wagging at the bash.
