But we think it’s safe to say NOTHING compares to the unlikely romance of DIY SOS presenter Nick Knowles and former Essex star and Mario Falcone‘s ex, Pascal Craymer.

Yup, the new couple first sparked relationship rumours last week when they were spotted sipping wine over a flirty tapas meal.

The TV star and reality babe – who reportedly met through mutual friends – were snapped walking arm-in-arm as they left the fancy dinner in London. Ooo la la.

And now a representative for Pascal has confirmed they are indeed an item, telling The Sun: ‘It’s very early days. They had a wonderful night. Let’s see what happens.’

A source then revealed: ‘Things between Nick and Pascal are going really well. There’s no pressure, they’re taking things slow and seeing how things go, but there’s definitely another evening out in the pipeline.’

Before adding: ‘Nick is quite private and has been cautious about rushing into anything new, but Pascal is really fun and they had a great time last week.’

‘It’s a big thing for Nick to go on a public date as he’s been very cautious in the past, since finally separating from his wife Jessica.’

Meanwhile model Pascal used to date TOWIE lothario Mario and was introduced onto the hit ITVBe show as his girlfriend in 2013 before the pair swiftly split.
