Stunning: Jenna Coleman was putting in a glamorous appearance at the Burberry and BAFTA In Conversation event, held at Makers House in London on Wednesday evening
Jenna exuded sophistication in the belted coat dress, nipped in at the waist and falling to mid-calf.
The demure number ensured the former Doctor Who favourite looked classy as ever, and was accessorised with understated jewellery and black strappy heels.
Jenna wore her brunette bob in a sleek style and enhanced her eyes with a sweep of bronze shadow.
Also in attendance at the event was Truly, Madly, Deeply star Juliet Stevenson, dressed to impress in a black lace dress.
Jenna has so far remained tight-lipped about her relationship with on-screen love Tom, 30, which was revealed by the Mail On Sunday.
The couple are understood to have been secretly dating since last summer, before they began filming their roles as the young Queen Victoria and the love of her life, Prince Albert.
And in a suitably royal twist, Prince Harry played an unwitting matchmaker after making a move on Jenna at a polo match last summer that left Tom so jealous he pursued Jenna for himself.
Sources close to the couple say they have deliberately kept their romance below the radar because they are ‘deeply private’ people.
Jenna Coleman and Tom Hughes are said to have been dating for a year after he became jealous when Prince Harry asked her out
‘They’ve been together for months, on and off since last summer,’ said one friend.
‘Tom dumped his long-term girlfriend to be with Jenna and she chose to be with him even though Prince Harry was very keen on her. What started as an affair became a very serious romance.’
Last week the pair were seen at The Electric, the Notting Hill branch of exclusive club Soho House, where they cosied up together in the members’ area after attending a dinner hosted by Glamour magazine.
A source close to Jenna said: ‘The reason the chemistry is so tangible is because they are dating in real life. Those scenes are very real. They are completely hooked on one another.’
The actors fuelled rumours that their relationship was more than strictly professional when they were seen dining for two hours together in London a fortnight ago.
‘They wanted to keep it quiet because they didn’t want their professionalism called into question,’ said the source. ‘Also Tom was dating another actress when he met Jenna and it was all a bit messy.’
The actors first met three years ago while filming BBC2 drama Dancing On The Edge.
At the time, Jenna was dating Game Of Thrones star Richard Madden and Tom was living with actress Ophelia Lovibond in Hampstead, North London.
Sources say Tom set his sights on Jenna last year during a polo match in Ascot, when she was photographed with Prince Harry.
Representatives of both stars declined to comment.
