Fans of Derry Girls star Saoirse-Monica Jackson have been left stunned after discovering who the actress is dating.
The 28-year-old actress from Derry, best known for her role as Erin in the hit Channel 4 comedy series, has had the spotlight turned on her love life after fans discovered her under-the-radar romance.
Saoirse is in a relationship with DJ Denis Sulta, with the couple going public with their relationship last September and going “Instagram official.”
Denis – real name Hector Barbour – has been dubbed a “prodigal producer” by industry critics. He recently joined BBC Radio 1’s Residency show alongside Jayda G, HAAi, and Charlotte de Witte.
Many Derry Girls fans didn’t pick up on who Saoirse was dating, however, and were left shocked by their relationship.
A viral tweet sparked the widespread discovery. It read: “There are some random celebrity couples out there but Denis Sulta and Erin from Derry Girls takes the cake.”
“My head is gone. Why did I not know this,” one fan replied, as another added: “Wait what??”
“How did I not know this?? Wtf,” one baffled fan asked.
Saoirse and Denis made their relationship public back in September, with a sweet picture shared on social media, and the actress was left red-faced as many thought the snap was an engagement picture, because Denis was on one knee.
“DISCLAIMER – NOOOOO…. This is not an engagement photo people. He just had a long day on his feet,” she added in the comments.
The couple later jetted off to the exclusive Tulum México Ruinas Mayas to celebrate ringing in the New Year, indulging in cocktails and glorious sunsets on the romantic trip.
“Hunky New Year,” she cheekily captioned on picture of Denis sat topless in the sea.
