British actor Nick Moran is enjoying a secret romance to avert the pressures of fame - but insists he won't rush into marriage.

The LOCK, STOCK AND TWO SMOKING BARRELS star previously dated actresses Sienna Guillory and Denise Van Outen but this time he wants to maintain the anonymity of his lover - especially as she works outside the entertainment industry.

And he is convinced the relationship has a better chance of working if it is kept under wraps.

Moran, 35, says, "I'm seeing a girl but she isn't in the business, so I don't go on about her.

"People ask her what her boyfriend does and she says, 'Oh, he works in a shop.'"

As for marriage, he adds, "Marriage? Oh, I don't know - what do you think?

"I don't think along the lines of 'By the time I'm 40 I shall have my first child. I don't plan like that."
