Sarah Hyland has appeared to confirm her rumoured romance with Wells Adams.

The 'Modern Family' actress took to her Instagram account to share a black and white picture of the pair in which she is cuddling up to him while sticking her tongue out for the camera.

She wrote: ''He puts up with me''

The 'Bachelorette' star also shared a picture of the pair on his Instagram account.

In the snap the couple are seen gazing lovingly into one another's arms and he has his arm around her shoulder while they are standing in front of a number of fairy lights.

Wells wrote: ''Back lit AF (sic)''

Some Instagram trolls were not too keen on the photos leading to Wells' 'Bachelor in Paradise' co-star Danielle Maltby - who he was romantically linked to after getting close on the show - to stick up for the pair, confirming they are a ''genuine couple''.

She wrote: ''Are you kidding me? I ship this couple SO hard! I've never seen Wells so giddy and happy! Try spreading some love instead of knocking down one of the cutest and most genuine coupling I've seen in a long time. (sic)''

Last week, Sarah and Wells were said to have been dating ''for months'' but decided to keep it under wraps until last month.

A source said: ''They [Sarah and Wells] are casually dating and have been seeing each other for months.''

Sarah, 26, was previously dating Dominic Sherwood for two years, and she confirmed the pair had split.

She wrote on Twitter: ''The problem with being single isn't the fact that you're alone. It's that you can't puppy dog eye a guy into getting you Starbucks in bed.''
