Ray Quinn has a new lady in his life. The 28-year-old has revealed he is dating school teacher Emily Fletcher, following the end of his marriage to ex-wife Emma Stephens in 2015. Ray opened up about his new romance this week, revealing that the pair have been secretly dating since June. Speaking to Star magazine, Ray said: "She's a school teacher and we made it official last June. It was fate. I believe whatever's meant for you won't pass you by. I can't stand dating apps. A text message or a picture on Tinder is absolutely pointless."

However, Ray did say that the couple are taking things slowly, and insisted marriage is not yet on the cards. "There's no rush," he said. "Why fix it if it's not broken. My priority is my son and keeping him happy and safe." Ray is a dad to four-year-old Harry from his marriage to actress Emma. The couple tied the knot in Barbados on 31 March 2012 – the same day they announced Emma's pregnancy – but announced their separation in February 2015.
The 28-year-old described their romance as "fate"
Ray, who found fame on the third series of The X Factor in 2006, has shared a number of photos of Emily on social media, and the pair are clearly head over heels in love. Back in January, Emily shared a touching New Year's tribute to Ray, alongside a sweet photo collage of the couple together. She wrote: "I just want to thank my lucky stars this year I found the love of my life, or you found me, whatever way it was, I've never been so happy. You are amazing, crazy, funny, annoying and your beautiful heart and soul is why I fell so deeply in love with you. You're one in a million and perfect for me in every way."

She added: "I know no matter where life takes us I'll always feel at home and content knowing we will always be dancing and singing through life. I support you 100 per cent. I can't tell you enough how much I love you My King." In response, Ray wrote: "Well, I found you! And you have made me the happiest man alive! I can't wait to see what life brings us this year. I love you and always will! My powerful, beautiful, amazing Queen… Me and you for life! Xx."
