The newly blossomed relationship is said to have begun in April after the pair were spotted dining at Roka in Canary Wharf.

They were later seen flirting outside a restaurant in Marylebone with Rylan holding a glass of red wine during a cigarette break.

Declan previously dated Geordie Shore star Nathan, with the couple splitting in April 2022 after realising ‘they were no longer compatible’.

The news comes after the TV presenter was forced to take time off work, including his presenting gigs, after splitting from his husband, Dan Neal, of six years in June last year.

It is believed the couple split over differences regarding having children and Dan’s TV career ambitions.

Despite this, Rylan has publicly blamed himself for the breakdown of the marriage. Rylan was a step-father to Dan’s son, Cameron, from a previous relationship but had been candid about wanting children of his own.

The two first met in 2013 after Rylan had won Celebrity Big Brother and Dan had appeared on series 14 of the same show.

The following year, in 2014, the pair announced their engagement before marrying in November 2015.

Rylan and Dan became the first same-sex gay couple to present ITV’s This Morning, but Rylan later revealed that they weren’t too keen on working alongside one another.

Whereas it is rumoured that Rylan first met Declan over a decade ago at the X Factor auditions.

Declan was chancing his luck as a solo act having previously entered the talent show in a mixed-gender band known as NVS.

He supported Little Mix and JLS while on tour as a member of the same band.

Declan and Nathan split in April after realising ‘they were no longer compatible’ during a getaway in Mexico.

Rylan’s new love and the Newcastle native had rekindled their romance after filming for the latest series of Celebrity Ex On The Beach.

A representative for Nathan told MailOnline: ‘Nathan and Declan split a few days ago. As with any relationship, they don’t always work out. Nathan wishes Declan all the best for the future, in his life and sobriety.’

Meanwhile, a source added to OK!: ‘After their holiday to Mexico, the couple realised they were no longer compatible. They always say you never fully know each other until you live together.

‘And even though they did during Ex On The Beach it was very different environment due to the cameras.’
