Drama: Max plays Luke Posner on the soap, who sparked up a romance with Victoria Sugden after she was raped by his brother Lee
Last month both Max and Kris sparked dating speculation when they enjoyed a rainy hike together.
Kris also shared a snap alongside Max as they sunbathed together, with the caption: ‘London lads lazily lounging like.’
Max’s character Luke first appeared on the soap after forming a friendship with Victoria Sugden, who was raped by Lee following a night out.
Victoria struggled to overcome her horrific ordeal, especially after learning she was pregnant with his baby, and was horrified to learn Luke was his brother.
Lee was eventually killed by Victoria’s vengeful brother Robert, while Luke and Victoria’s relationship has remained platonic, though bosses have hinted things could turn romantic in the future.
