#AlDub: 14 celebrity fans
MANILA, Philippines – Even celebrities cannot get enough of the tandem of Alden Richards and Maine Mendoza aka Yaya Dub.
The AlDub tandem was born out of Eat Bulaga's "Juan For All, All For Juan" segment, where the characters Alden and Yaya Dub are in love, but kept apart by Yaya's boss, Lola Nidora.
Since July, the tandem has had audiences hooked on every step of the way of Alden and Yaya Dub's quest to be together. The two had their much anticipated date last September 19 and although it was cut short, Lola Nidora said there might be another date in the future.
