Netflix's Heartstopper cast members, Joe Locke and Sebastian Croft are reported to be dating each other. Rumors came around as the two co-stars frequently shared photographs of each other on their Instagram. However, they have not confirmed their relationship and it's safe to assume they're both single as of April 2022. Go through the article to know more about Joe Locke and Sebastian Croft's dating rumors.
Joe Locke is a breakout sensation and one of the main characters in Netflix's wonderful series, Heartstopper. Before beating out 10,000 other candidates for the role of a schoolboy, Locke was an unknown actor.
Heartstopper is a series based on Alice Oseman's graphic novel of the same name, and it tells the story of two friends who fall in love slowly.
Charlie Spring, played by Joe Locke, has no concerns about being openly homosexual after being outed forcibly, but he is concerned about his boyfriend's wish to remain anonymous. Spring leaves his violent boyfriend in order to investigate his feelings for Nick Nelson (Kit Connor).
Nick is heterosexual, yet he can't help but feel a romantic attraction toward Charlie. The show explores his self-discovery journey as well as other inspiring gay stories.
Fans have been interested in Joe Locke's dating life after watching Charlie fall deeply in love with Nick in Heartstopper. Joe and Kit are certainly not together off the screen. However, rumors have been all around that Joe might be dating his other co-star, Sebastian Croft. Well, let's find out the truth.

Heartstopper: Are Joe Locke and Sebastian Croft Dating?
Sebastian Croft plays Charlie's secret lover Ben Hope in Netflix's teen drama, Heartstopper. Ben refuses to accept his relationship with Charlie, choosing to maintain his girlfriend and hide his sexuality. Hope's relationship with Charlie finally comes to an end.
In real life, Sebastian and Joe Locke (@joelocke03) get along better than they do on TV. The couple's tight friendship has sparked suspicions that they are dating. Locke and Croft have a number of social media posts together, including many images during a trip to New York.
Speculation regarding the two co-stars' relationship was fueled by two photographs in particular. One of the photographs can be seen on Joe Locke's Instagram(recently deleted). Despite the fact that Joe and Sebastian are dressed alike in the picture, there is no sign that they are dating.
The other picture can be seen on Sebastian Croft's Instagram account (@sebastiancroft). This photograph shows Joe and Sebastian hugging and smiling at the camera. To put it another way, there's nothing in the picture that says they're dating.
To make a long story short, Sebastian Croft and Joe Locke are not dating or have not confirmed their relationship for now. However, due to various exhibits, fans are having difficulty convincing themselves that they are not dating each other in real life.
As a result, fans began shipping 'Sebastian and Joe' on Twitter. "Someone be the Sebastian croft to my Joe Locke," one fan wrote on a collage of Sebastian and Joe in April 2022. Similarly, a Sebastian fan account wrote, "We're going to see kit connor pull sebastian croft off joe locke I'm going to cry."
Therefore, it looks that Joe Locke and Sebastian Croft are both single and not dating each other for now. Unless Joe and Sebastian openly reveal their relationship status or there is more evidence to the contrary, they are assumed to be single.

When he arrived on the set of Heartstopper, it was one of the first things he did. On the other hand, Kit Connor joked that his love for a cup of coffee on the set of Heartstopper was not ideal for their kissing moments. Connor said,
It did mean there were a couple of kissing scenes where I was punished deeply.
Locke justified himself by claiming he had chewing gum in his mouth. When Locke was caught off guard during a surprise kissing scene practice, Connor recalls that chewing gum was not present. Locke happened to be holding a freshly brewed cup of coffee.
Connor jokes that it was tough for him and that he wished he could have an egg salad sandwich or something similar and eat it soon before the shooting.
Similarly, the two actors discuss growing comfortable with the more emotional passages in an interview with Still Watching Netflix.
Connor recalls that he would crack jokes to relieve tension and that he would frequently mention Joe's stinky breath.
