Since splitting with her longterm boyfriend last year, Strictly Come Dancing star Natasha Kaplinsky has had no shortage of suitors for her dance card.

She's been linked to both 45-year-old TV exec Lloyd Bracey and her TV partner Brendan Cole. And now single Natasha, whose agent says she is "just enjoying life", seems to be getting along swimmingly with her former Strictly Come Dancing co-star, 20-year-old Chris Parker.

Chris, who now plays Spencer Moon on EastEnders, was reunited with the 31-year-old beauty at a dinner held for the stars of the popular ballroom dance programme. An onlooker tells the Daily Express that at the end of the celebrations at London's The Ivy restaurant, the two left "arm-in-arm and sharing a taxi".

The EastEnders actor says he established a firm friendship with Natasha, who came out on top in the dance competition. "I was the closest to her out of everyone, " he said last month. "She's now a friend for life and we've been calling and texting each other. She's great."
