Marsh has struck up an unlikely friendship with troubled footballer Chopra.
The actress is still getting over her split from second husband, EastEnders actor Jamie Lomas.
Chopra is a recovering gambling addict who was caught up in a cocaine trial in November, the Mirror reported.
The pair met last month at Blackpool Rocks dance event when Chopra was celebrating his 30th birthday.
