TOWIE’s Chloe Sims has been secretly dating 5ive’s Abz Love

They've posted some cute Instagram snaps

Chloe Sims has reportedly been secretly dating Abz Love, who is a member of the former boy band 5ive, and they have hinted at their romance in new Instagram snaps.

The blonde beauty allegedly struck up a relationship with the boy band star two months ago and a friend of Chloe’s has released statements about the romance to The Sun.

The friend said: “This is Chloe’s first serious relationship in years. We’d never have put the two of them together but they couldn’t be more perfect. She’s just started telling her friends about it and she’s the happiest we’ve seen her in ages.”

Chloe has hinted at the romance with some playful pics on Instagram, though she is yet to publicly confirm that they are an item. They were first seen together earlier this month at the British Style Collective 2017 event in Liverpool.

A few days previously, both of them posted a sweet photo of themselves on social media after Abz went to Chloe’s salon and was given a mud face mask.

Recently Chloe posted a much more romantic snap showing a close up of her hand holding a man’s. It’s clear it’s Abz’s hand because of the distinct tattoos that he has. On top of the picture are the words: “Bad boy? You choose. Holding hands and tattoos…”

Fans of Chloe might be a bit shocked at her new choice of boyfriend as her previous lovers have been pretty different to say the least. Her last romance was with multi-millionaire businessman Robert Tchenquiz.

It’s good to see Abz finally happy as well, as he went through a messy split earlier this year with his fiance Vicky Fallon, who was also his manager.

Abz was in the popular 90’s boy band 5ive who split up in 2001. It became well known that Abz got into drink and drugs, and ended up having to declare himself bankrupt.

He credited his now ex Vicky, with helping him to get his life back on track as they moved to a rural area of Wales and looked after farm animals.

Abz, 38, confirmed the split from Vicky over Twitter. He said: “Amore no more” with a broken heart emoji. He tweeted soon after: “Thank you for the time we shared together. It was a beautiful moment in my life. I wish you all the best. Take care.”

Chloe, 34, has a young daughter called Madison and has been linked with the likes of Liam Gatsby, Calum Best and Joe Fournier.
