Tanya Reynolds, the star of Sex Education, has never been one to say much. That can be seen on her social media accounts, particularly Instagram, where she allows her photos do the most of the talking.

Her refusal to speak or write much may have allowed her to keep her dating life hidden for a long time. After all, her dating rumors with lover Freddie Fox first arose in the mid-2020s.

Her social media, on the other hand, reveals they were dating long before any magazine picked up on their relationship.

In 2020, did Tanya Reynolds start dating Freddie Fox?

The Sun, a British publication, published a report on June 9, 2020, claiming Reynolds was dating Fox. This report was written after they collaborated on Fanny Lye Delivered in 2019.

The Sun claimed to have obtained information and quotations from insider sources and intimate friends of the pair, all of whom corroborated their relationship. They were reportedly isolating together in his London house when the report was released.

According to an Insider source, Fox prefers to keep his personal life secret. According to the insider, the pair was still in their “early days,” but they were “infatuated with each other.”

“Their friends believe they’re a cute couple,” the source continued. However, a look at Reynolds’ Instagram page suggests that Fox had been following (and possibly dating?) her long before June 2020.


On December 3, 2018, Fox made her first appearance on her Instagram account

He was seated on a couch with a fish-shaped stuffed doll and a framed t-shirt slung over his head in the photo. “Love me,” read one of the many comments on the t-shirt. Perhaps a hint? Maybe, but the picture didn’t prove anything, and she didn’t add any context with a caption.

Following that, on April 6, 2019, Reynolds shared a photo of Fox, followed by another on May 2, 2019. She just added hashtags relating to photography in her caption.

Her now-boyfriend then reappeared on her Instagram on November 23, 2021. She simply had hashtags for a caption this time, but the photo was far more intimate – he was looking in the mirror.

The actor’s most recent photos were taken on April 1 and April 20, 2022. But, once again, there is no context in the caption. However, there is a repeating pattern in all of these images. While she responds to most of her other posts with at least a few words, she remains silent on his photos.

The Dating Life of Freddie Fox

Reynolds was in a relationship with actress Tamzin Merchant before he and Fox started dating, whenever that was.

On the set of The Mystery of Edwin Drood in 2011, Fox met Merchant. They ended their relationship two years later, in September 2013. Following this, he was linked to Prince Harry’s ex-girlfriend Cressida Bonas. During an interview with The Telegraph in January 2015, he also hinted that he might be bisexual.

Fox was linked to Lily James in January 2020, two months before The Sun reported their affair. They were spotted getting intimate at a London event.

He later clarified, though, that it was just two acting school pals hanging around and nothing more.
