ROMAN KEMP has a winning smile when on TV but flashing that beam might be harder than usual at the moment.
I’ve learned that lockdown proved too much for the I’m A Celeb star and his girlfriend Anne-Sophie Flury, who have split after almost three years.
Yet despite the relationship ending just weeks ago, he is wasting no time finding love and has joined celebrity dating app Raya.
Roman, who hosts the Capital Breakfast show and is the son of Spandau Ballet star Martin, moved in with Anne-Sophie, a Swiss neuroscientist, in January, having met her on Tinder in 2018. They share a year-old chihuahua called Luna, which Anne-Sophie is believed to have kept in the split.
A source close to the DJ said: “Roman loved Soph and things had been going really well for them. But being in lockdown is tough for any couple and they just weren’t able to make things work, which has been upsetting and tough for them both.
“His pals have encouraged him to move on and have got him on Raya, which is packed with attractive and creative women. He’s set up a profile with his best photos and has set the music on his page to the song Gold, by his dad’s band. He’s having fun with it.”
Roman’s career has gone from strength to strength in the past year, having finished third in the TV jungle, landed an ITV talk show with his pop star dad and become a regular on Celebrity Gogglebox.
But in December he was hoping to start a family and thought Anne-Sophie was the girl he would do it with.
He said at the time: “Every time I see a child, I get broody.”
Plenty more fish in the sea, Roman.
DESPITE not seeing each other for four months, The Pussycat Dolls are now closer than ever, according to Carmit Bachar.
The singer, who posed in a patterned bikini and floral blue shirt for the cover of Lapalme magazine, said of bandmates Nicole Scherzinger, Kimberly Wyatt, Ashley Roberts and Jessica Sutta that absence really has made the heart grow fonder.
Carmit explained: “We’ve been going through similar things. It’s more important than ever now to show that women can support each other and hold each other up.”
THEY say birds of a feather stick together and it seems models do too – as Cara Delevingne and Kaia Gerber look inseparable at a Black Lives Matter rally.
Kaia wrapped her arms around Cara, and strolled with her, as they listened to motivational speakers at the event in California, which was attended by thousands.
Despite the nine-year age gap, the pair palled up after meeting on the fashion circuit. Cara, who spent lockdown in the US, joined American Kaia, her model mum Cindy Crawford and dad Randy Gerber in a social bubble when restrictions relaxed last month.
This included joining the family for dinner at swanky Malibu restaurant Nobu in June, with Cara having split from her long-term girlfriend, Pretty Little Liars actress Ashley Benson, the previous month.
With Kaia quickly becoming the model of the moment, I couldn’t think of a better pal than Cara – named the UK’s highest-earning catwalk queen last year – to help her navigate the industry.
BOYZONE split up for good before the release of their 2018 album and the subsequent tour last year . . . or so they said. But they might already be having second thoughts.
Keith Duffy has teamed up with ex-Westlife star Brian McFadden to release an album as Boyz-Life, and Brian reckons it’s only a matter of time before Boyzone are back too. He said: “It’s 16 years since I left Westlife so, for me, rejoining won’t happen. But for Boyzone . . . the boys have been together for 25 years.
“Though Keith and I are doing this and Ronan Keating is doing his solo thing, if the opportunity comes up for the boys to get together – there is going to be a 30-year anniversary in a few years – you can never say never.”
With 20 No1 singles between the two bands, Keith and Brian had plenty of options when picking songs for their Strings Attached album, recorded with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, which is out today.
Keith said: “It made it very easy, the fact we had so many No1 singles to choose from. You Needed Me (from 1999) was always our first choice, the song we were both excited about.” And they are already writing new material.
Keith said: “With lockdown, we’re miles ahead where we were hoping to be for the new album.
“Boyz-life has gone from strength to strength. We’ve moved mountains.
“We’re pinching ourselves to be given this opportunity again in our forties to get on stage.”
POP fans would have been in for a shock if they had bumped into this trio in the park.
THE Saturdays members Frankie Bridge, Una Healy and Mollie King shared the photo on their catch-up, six years on from their split.
I guess their absent bandmates Vanessa White and Rochelle Humes were taking their social- distancing really seriously.
