Stuart Manning is known for his performance as Russel Owens in British Channel 4 soap opera Hollyoaks. He is the winner of 2002 The British Soap Award for Hero of the Year. He is also known for designing episode posters for television reality series Doctor Who.
Just like many other actors, Manning was a victim of controversial relationship rumors. Were those rumors really true or were they all just rumor trying to prey on an actor's career. Find out below about his relationship and past affairs.
Stuart Manning's Relationship
As of 2018, Stuart Manning is possibly single, since he has not been seen together with his ex-girlfriend Gaynor Faye. Some sources say that the couple might have broken up and he is now a single guy.
The 38-year-old Manning doesn't seem to be in a hurry to settle down and is focusing on his career. He is not dating anyone right now and is working on his poster designs for reality series Doctor Who. His efforts for the British television programme Doctor Who can be seen through his social media.
On August of 2017, he tweeted,
As a title sequence designer for Doctor Who alongside Jonny Eveson, he sure shares a lot about his design through Facebook and Twitter.

Although Manning is open about his career, he has not yet revealed if he is secretly dating anyone right now. Let's hope that the actor reveals about his relationship soon.
Stuart Manning's Past Affairs.
He dated Ex-Coronation Street Star Gaynor Faye since 2010. They met in September of 2010 when he was starring in a stage play with Gaynor’s mother Kay Mellor. Gaynor who was 39 quickly got along with 31-year-old Stuart. When asked about how the couple met, a friend to both Faye and Manning stated,
“It is still early days, but they get on brilliantly well and love spending time together. They’ve been out on a lot of dates.”
Gaynor was already married to property developer Mark Pickering and had two children when she started going out with Stuart. The couple was comfortable with their age differences and enjoyed each others company.
Stuart rented flat in Leeds previously owned by Gaynor and Mark and used the place to meet up.
The couple has not been seen together for a long time. Looks like the duo parted ways after going out for some time.
Stuart Manning Eviction From I'm a Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here!
Stuart was evicted out of the tv reality series I'm a Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here!, days later after a rumor of a budding romance with former Mis-Teeq singer Sabrina Washington. After his eviction, he was interviewed by GMTV where he was asked about his relationship with Washington to which he replies,
'Everyone thinks it was a little bit more but it’s not - we’re just friends. Sorry. I really enjoyed her company we're in the same age bracket, and we had good chats, that’s all it was.'
Sabrina and Stuart were last photographed together at a karaoke session in the show. Although the couple was tight-lipped about their relationship, they sure were enjoying each other's company.
Stuart was also rumored to be dating Scottish singer and songwriter Marie McDonald McLaughlin Lawrie aka Lulu where they were spotted sitting next to each other in a matching dress in a Star Party.
They were also seen together at 'Posh 'n' Becks' shindig just before Lulu's album was releasing. Sources say that it wasn't a relationship but a publicity stunt to promote Lulu's album.
