The geeky writer/producer was sprung out at the movies with Rose in London - and looked pretty chuffed to be with his gorgeous friend.
Rose, on the other hand, didn't look like she was loving it.
The unlikely pair may not be matched in the looks department - but their height sets them even further apart: Stephen is a towering 6ft 7, where Rose stands at an average 5ft 6.
Both are long overdue to find love again - Rose has been without a fuull-time beau since splitting from Brendan Cowell in January, where Stephen broke up with digital advertising manager Claire Jones back in 2009.
