Either way I feel awful for both of them and especially Gina. Thankfully she has a lot of support from her fans, me included. She's still a lovely, sweet woman. Nobody should have to suffer this embarrassment in a tabloid, and whoever tweeted that photo to Gina needs a good slap in my opinion.
Seen (theatre): Once (London x 2), Wicked (Scheveningen, The Netherlands x6), Wicked (London x 22), We Will Rock You (London x3), Les Miserables (London x 1), The Phantom of the Opera (London x1), Rock of Ages (London x 1), Romeo et Juliette (Takarazuka Revue, Japan x 5), Studio54 (Takarazuka Revue, Japan, x1), For Whom The Bell Tolls (Takarazuka Revue, Japan, x1), Nova Bossa Nova/Meguriai wa Futatabi (Takarazuka Revue, Japan, x2), Nijinsky (Takarazuka Revue, Japan, x3), 9 to 5: The Musical (UK Tour, Sunderland x1), RENT in Concert (Newcastle x1), Singin' In The Rain (UK Tour, Sunderland x 1)

Seen (concerts, etc): Willemijn Verkaik "As I Am" solo concert at the AFAS Circustheater (2012), West End Eurovision 2013, Rachel Tucker at the St James Theatre studio, Scott Alan at the O2, Andrew Lippa at the St James Theatre

"Our source continued: '...The cast aren’t happy though, it isn’t nice working in that sort of environment. It is very tense.' "

Only someone in the cast or who works at the theatre would know how the rest of the cast would feel about this.
Its actually vile that someone would do this.

Much love to Gina :)

Hmm, don't usually engage in celebrity gossip but can't resist commenting:

I haven't seen either of them on stage or met them (and don't know Ben as a celebrity), so I couldn't possibly comment on their personality, whether they're nice at stage door or whatever.
I also agree that this very much looks like a set up.
However, IF it is true and IF they're not broken up with their partners, 'poor Gina' or 'poor Ben' isn't exactly what springs to mind..
Having said that, no, it shouldn't affect their careers. What they do is up to them, Their personal life is their personal life (even if exposed, potentially) and shouldn't have an affect on their profession (i.e. once I do hopefully get to see this cast I won't like Gina's Beck any more or less because of this.. work is work).

whilst its not nice to have your business dragged through the media, if they are having an affair then they should know it would come out eventually especially in such a confined environment. i cant say i have much sympathy

What I meant, except put much more concisely. Thank you.

I don't know Ben's situation but Gina's partner Martin tweeted someone a few weeks ago saying there was no wedding anymore so I assume they're no longer together.

Well nobody knows what gone on behind the scenes but I do feel bad for them that this has all come out in the press because nobody deserves that to happen, they can be pretty manipulative as we all know!
