When TV WEEK first met Sarah Roberts last year, her life was completely different. The actress had just moved to Sydney from Melbourne and made her debut in Home And Away.

Not only that, but she was recently single after a nine-year relationship and looking for love. In fact, she welcomed any opportunities to find “The One”.

Little did Sarah know, the man of her dreams was waiting for her on the sands of Summer Bay in the form of her H&A co-star James Stewart.

“I know – I found it [love]!” she grins as we point out this happy fact.

A loved up James and Sarah visited Byron Bay together in January.

Just weeks ago, the actress and DJ pleased fans when she took to Instagram to confirm that she and James were officially a couple. The pair have been together since August last year.

“We started dating around the time of the Conor McGregor fight [against boxer Floyd Mayweather]. It’s pretty funny that’s how I remember it,” Sarah laughs.

While most new couples are quick to profess their love in public, Sarah and James, 42, opted for a low profile.

“We just wanted to be respectful of everyone and stay under the radar,” she explains of their decision. “When it started happening, we wanted to keep it all separate from work.”

The pair have taken their relationship public on Instagram.

Presumably, James is also mindful of his five-year-old daughter Scout, who he co-parents with his ex-fiancée, actress Jessica Marais. However, the loved-up couple also wanted to stay in their bubble a little longer.

“It’s hard sometimes and a bit strange that people are so interested in your private life, but it comes with the job,” Sarah concedes.

“We just wanted to keep things special between us. It’s beautiful.”
