"They have been on several dates already," a source close to Ms Cronin told the Daily Mail. "This is their public debut, which shows they're serious about their relationship. Things have moved quickly."

Amanda is a former model who starred on the Channel 4 TV show The Millionairess And Me earlier this year.

Speaking to the Daily Mail's Diary in December 2021, Ms Cronin complained that she 'never gets approached' by men.

"I am looking for love, but I never get approached. I want a man who is kind, passionate, sincere and authentic," she said.

"I don't want to do dating apps – I just believe the right person lands in my life, it always has."
