Dating rumours reach fever pitch as couple are spotted clinging to each other

Reports of a romance between ROBERT PATTINSON and KRISTEN STEWART are refusing to go away after the TWILIGHT stars were snapped holding hands in Paris, France.

The actors, who play on-screen lovers in the vampire movie franchise, have been jet-setting across the world to promote the second installment in the series, The Twilight Saga: New Moon.

Both stars have repeatedly denied they are more than just friends, but rumours heated up last month when they were allegedly spotted kissing outside a Hollywood screening of the film sequel.

A source told, "Rob wanted a cigarette so he went outside with Kristen for about 15 minutes. They were hugging, as Rob was smoking his cigarette, and then he leaned down and kissed her on the lips. He had his arm around her almost the whole time."

Now photos of the rumoured couple have emerged showing Kristen clinging on to Rob's hand as they boarded a plane at Le Bourget airport in France on Tuesday night.

It's the first set of images of the stars in a public display of affection since the dating rumours first surfaced following the release of Twilight last year.
