Tumble star Lucy is said to be falling for Welsh hottie Gethin

Cute couple alert! It looks like former TOWIE star Lucy Mecklenburgh and TV presenter Gethin Jones are totally dating!

Word is, the pair hit it off after meeting at a showbiz party in late July. They got chatting, liked the look of each other and exchanged numbers. Sources say romance is now blooming after the pair went on a number of low-key secret dates. Swit-swoo!

Former Blue Peter presenter Gethin, 36, has dated a long line of beautiful ladies in the past.

He was previously engaged to opera singer Katherine Jenkins before they called it quits in 2011 after four years of dating.

At the time, Gethin said he was ‘devastated that things hadn’t worked out’ and Katherine was ‘beyond broken hearted’.

He has since been linked to Kelly Brook and fellow presenter Amanda Byram but has denied any involvement with them.

However Katherine recently got engaged to Andrew Levitas, so could now be the perfect time for Gethin to find love again?

Meanwhile Lucy previously dated her TOWIE co-stars Mario Falcone and Mark Wright. She most recently was linked to her Tumble dance partner Billy George but both fiercely denied there was anything going on.

And now maybe we know why, huh, Lucy?

She said earlier this month: ‘I don’t know if I was hoping to meet someone [special] on Tumble. Maybe if I had a big, hunky, 6ft 2in gymnast, I might. But I don’t.’

Ouch Billy, that’s got to hurt! The good news for Lucy at least, is that Gethin is tall AND hunky.

Which may explain her tweet, earlier this week: ‘Feeling extremely happy & lucky right now. I’m Loving 2014!!! #positivity #future #happiness.’
