Sam Smith reportedly has a new man in his life. The 23-year-old singer is said to be smitten with former Hollyoaks actor Andy Newton-Lee.
Sam only recently split from British model Jay Camilleri, the relationship ending amicably when the attention it generated became too much. "They have decided to cool things off for now and have remained good friends," a source confirmed to the Sun.

And now Sam is now said to be dating Andy, best known for playing Robbie Flynn in the channel 4 soap back in 2004.
"They met very recently and they instantly hit it off," the insider added. "It got pretty heated for them and they shared a kiss at the end of the night. Last week the pair even partied together at Coachella festival and Andy was gushing about Sam on social media."
Andy currently lives in LA, where he is the CEO of a relocation company, and Sam reportedly recently asked him to fly to London to meet up. "Sadly Andy was unable to get the time off work but they are chatting all the time and planning their next date," the source said.

The news comes just a few weeks after Jay opened up about his romance with the Oscar-winner, and revealed how Sam had supported him during his ongoing battle with anorexia.
"It's early days with Sam and I, but we have been hanging out a lot having drinks, like at Shoreditch House… People have noticed," he told the Mirror.
