There’s nothing like a good old celebrity dating rumour to whet the appetite on a grey January day – and this one has every element you could wish for.
Prominent exes, exorbitant wealth, connections to royalty, glamorous locations, secrecy… the lot!
According to the Sun, I’m a Celeb winner Georgia Toffolo is dating posh jeweller Charles Goode.
A source close to the couple told reporters that Charles is “totally smitten with Toff”.
“They have been seeing each other for a while and this was their first time away as a proper couple,” the friend told the paper.
The mole went on to reveal that the loved-up duo spent New Year together and “couldn’t keep their hands off each other”.
So who, you may ask, is this dashing young Mr Goode and what are his connections to the monarchy?
Well, the paper reports that Charles was once “rumoured to be engaged” to Prince Harry’s former girlfriend, Chelsy Davis.
The paper further claims that Charles and Toff are trying to keep their romance quiet, despite being snapped with their lips locked at the airport after their jaunt to Verbier, and having been seen stroking each other’s legs under a table.
“They have been keeping it quiet but after getting so close on holiday it is clear things are getting serious very quickly,” their pal insisted.
The apparent lovebirds saw in 2018 in a £22,000 a week chalet overlooking the popular ski resort of Verbier, along with Paddy McNally, the 77-year-old former Formula One boss who used to go out with Prince Andrew’s ex wife, Sarah Ferguson.
Those royal links just don’t stop coming, eh?
And Toff might have winced at the weekly rental cost, having reportedly only earned £13k for her stint in the jungle, Charles may have considered the holiday let something of a bargain.
As a third-generation jeweller with high-end Goode & Son, he is reportedly ‘loaded’, with his company’s jewels being sported by the likes of the Beckhams, Kate Moss and Kate Winslet.
So should wedding bells ring in the future, they’re not going to have to look far for an engagement ring…
