Love Life of Allen; Girlfriend Or Gay?
Allen has been open about his professional life. But, when it comes to his personal life, not many people are aware of what goes around in it. Nevertheless, those who are big fans of him shall know the fact that he was once in a relationship with Charlie Webster, an English television presenter.
The two were reported to have met during a charity event back in May 2014, and per Charlie, she did not recognize who Allen was at first.
“There is a running joke between us and the Downton cast because I had no idea who he was when I met him. We were at a charity event for Centre Point in May. We were playing table football and I was thinking ‘he’s really lovely and very handsome and really funny, he’s got a good smile."
She further added,
“We were being really competitive and I beat him. We just giggled so much and had such a good laugh. Then there was a quiz and we were having a lot of banter. I think that’s why we clicked because we are really similar when it comes to humor."
That is how the relationship was built, and that led them to be spotted at various places together like BFI London Film Festival, IWC Gala Dinner, and they were cute together with one another as a couple.

But after nearly over a year of dating, the pair broke the hearts of fans when the two revealed that they have indeed broken up and split from one another. The news broke out during the latter half of 2015, and the main reason for the split was termed to be "the wrong time to be in a relationship."

Also, the split was reported to be mutual, and it was time for them to focus on their respective careers rather than bind their lives together.
"We had an amazing time. There is no bad feeling at all. We are both very career minded. Downton Abbey has just finished and he is going to go on to a huge career. And my career is really exciting. It was the wrong time for either of us to be in a long-term relationship."
She further added,
"I'm single at the moment so we'll see what happens in 2016,"
But fans respected their decision to move ahead in separate paths and kept acknowledging them for the contributions they have made to their respective fields.
