British actors Jaime Winstone and Alfie Allen sparked rumours they have rekindled their on/off romance when they were spotted on a secret skate date on Monday (10Nov14). Kidulthood star Winstone, daughter of veteran screen star Ray Winstone, ended her seven-year romance with the Game of Thrones actor in July (14), four years after their engagement was called off.
Last month (Oct14), she discussed life as a single lady and insisted she would never turn to online dating as it is not romantic enough, but now it appears she might be overcoming her loneliness by getting close to Allen once again.
The pair arrived separately at an ice-skating rink in London on Monday night, but editors at Britain's Daily Mirror newspaper report they were later seen holding hands and flirting.
A source tells the publication, "It's definitely not over. It never is with them - their bond is too strong."
British actress Jaime Winstone has ruled out online dating as she deems it unnatural. The Kidulthood star ended her on/off relationship with Game of Thrones actor Alfie Allen earlier this year (14) and she has now moved back in with her parents, movie legend Ray Winstone and mother Elaine.
Despite her newly single-status, Winstone is adamant she won't turn to the internet to find a date as "it goes against the grain" of finding love.
She tells Britain's You magazine, "I would never ever do online dating or (dating app) Tinder - I can't think of anything less romantic. For me, it goes against the grain of meeting someone in a natural way and having real chemistry. I love how romance is so complicated, but also so clear... I think every girl wants to be swept off her feet - and I think sometimes the right person is in front of us but is hard to see."
Winstone also gushed about being in love, adding "If you're madly in love, nothing can touch that. It's scary because you make yourself so vulnerable when you fall in love, but when you get it right it can be pretty damn good.
"I find shooting sex scenes, knowing that he will be watching them, a nightmare, but you just have to get on with it. I remember being on set with him as a child, when he was shooting Beowulf with Angelina Jolie, and seeing them kissing. I found it so strange, but my mum wasn't bothered at all." Actress Jaime Winstone hates shooting sex scenes because she knows her dad, actor Ray, will see them.

Stars including supermodel Kate Moss, rocker Johnny Borrell and former Rolling Stones bassist Bill Wyman were among the mourners who gathered at the funeral of tragic socialite Peaches Geldof on Monday (21Apr14). Friends and family members came together to pay their last respects to Bob Geldof's daughter at St Mary Magdalene and St Lawrence church in Kent, England.
Moss was joined by her rocker husband Jamie Hince at the private service, while other mourners included musician Jools Holland, Sarah Ferguson, Duchess of York, Sting's wife Trudie Styler, TV presenter Alexa Chung, actress Jaime Winstone and music mogul Alan McGee.

Yates' ashes were scattered in the church grounds following her death from a drug overdose in 2000.
The 25-year-old mother-of-two was found dead at her home in Kent on 7 April (14). The cause of death is still not known.
