In photos obtained by the Sun, Nick, 58, and Katie, 31, can be seen walking side-by-side in Fulham, west London. The couple were headed for a quiet lunch date at the Hurlingham Club, with Nick dressed down in black jeans and a matching shirt, along with a military-style jacket.

Nick is thought to be dating Katie Dadzie

It is Nick's first known romance since his split from Emily Hallinan, 27, in February 2020. He revealed the news on Valentine's Day, sharing: "And if you're single like me don't worry, we don't have to join in everything every year. I missed national prune day too. Because it's not the end of the world to be single for a while."

In an interview with the Sun in May last year, Nick said: "There are times in your life when you are with someone, and there are times when you're not. And being single can actually be a very positive thing.”

He continued: "Having a three-month, enforced sit-down has actually been one of the best things that's happened to me in my life. I feel in a better place now than I have done for probably 20 years, just spending some time getting to know yourself before re-entering the fray."
