Jodie Comer has claimed she has “zero” love life since sky rocketing to fame in hit show Killing Eve as she has no time.

The 26-year-old actress - who has won a legion of fans as steely assassin Villanelle in the BBC drama - reportedly split from her boyfriend in March this year.

When asked about her dating life by The Australian newspaper, Comer said: “Oh, zero, darling, zero.”

She added: “I don't know if it's particularly because I've played a ­psychopath. I don't get approached at all. Which is fine - I'm never in one place long enough.”

The British actress revealed in September last year she had a boyfriend back home in Liverpool but it was reported earlier this year that they were no longer together.

Comer also revealed she had acquired a fanbase of “strange men” who followed her around while she was on a US press tour and turned up at the airport at 2am in a bid to get her to sign an autograph.

The Doctor Foster star had previously said playing a villainous killer scared off men.

She said: “I wanted people to be scared of [Villanelle]. But when I am introduced to men sometimes they are a little bit hesitant and yes, maybe they can be a bit frightened.”

The second series of Killing Eve - which co-stars Sandra Oh as MI5 security officer Eve Polastri - began on BBC America in the US on April 7, and will air on UK screens in June.

The show - scripted by Fleabag’s Phoebe Waller-Bridge - has seen Comer scoop a host of awards including a TV Bafta for Best Actress.
