Back in September, rumors began swirling of a love connection between Teen Wolf’s Colton Haynes and Pretty Little Liars actress Lucy Hale. After the duo were spotted getting cozy at a party for NYLON magazine, fans couldn’t help but wonder if Lucy had dumped boyfriend Chris Zylka in favor of a different chiseled star.

When asked about the rumors, Colton wasn’t shy about professing his love for the brunette beauty. She’s “a special girl in my life,” he explained, then added that’s as far as the relationship goes. Lucy also denied any romance with the Teen Wolf star, saying that the two have been friends since their days on Privileged back in 2008.

As far as we know, Colton has remained single — though that hasn’t stopped him from partaking in a little bit of PDA. On Wednesday, March 27, the actor arrived in Vancouver, BC, where he’s currently filming episodes for The CW’s Arrow. Making his way out of the airport, Colton was seen holding hands with none other than John Barrowman, his co-star on the drama!

Now, before any more rumors get started, it’s only fair to point out that the hand-holding was all a big joke! After spotting paparazzi waiting for them outside, John decided to pull an early April Fool’s Day prank and act like he and Colton were a couple.

We’ve got to hand it to John. He almost got us with that one! And props to Colton, too, whose huge smile proves he’s got an excellent sense of humor!
