The source told the Sun: "He had his arm around her and held her close. Afterwards, Tom and Priyanka talked closely and were holding hands at one point for a few moments. She fixed Tom's bow-tie and then they kissed on both cheeks."

The source added: "Priyanka and Tom said goodbye and she told him she will see him later. They left the event about a minute apart."

She later told US talk show Jimmy Fallon how 'princessy' she felt at the Emmy's.

She said: "I walked out with this big train and I did it for the first time because it was like 'oh, it's so pretty' and I feel princessy, and after I twirled once I was doing it all night!

"All of the photographers were asking me to twirl and then onstage Tom made me twirl and I was always only twirling. I'm the twirling dancing emoji now!"
