The spidey senses are tingling after Tom Holland and Zendaya - who have long denied dating rumours - were pictured kissing in Los Angeles on Thursday.

In photos published by Page Six, the Spider-man co-stars packed on the PDA while stopping at a red light during a drive in the 25-year-old's Audi. According to the publication, the pair was also spotted during the day at Zendaya's mother's residence in Silver Lake.

Rumours that the pair were an off-screen couple first surfaced in 2017. At the time, an insider told People, "They started seeing each other while they were filming Spider-Man. They've been super careful to keep it private and out of the public eye, but they've gone on vacations with each other and try and spend as much time as possible with one another."

While the pair continued to deny a romantic relationship, they gushed about their friendship in interviews.

In an interview with Variety, the Emmy winner said that Tom is one of her best friends.

"This past how many months we've had to do press tours together. There's very few people that will understand what that's like at 20 years old, said Zendaya.

In turn, Tom told British GQ that Zendaya had helped him a lot with his interaction with fans. "Talking to Zendaya's helped me a lot. She totally changed the way I am able to be more comfortable in public".
