AMBER DAVIES found romance thanks to Love Island – but now a DeLorean car has helped bag her a man.
I can reveal the reality star turned West End actress has fallen for her leading man Ben Joyce, who plays Marty McFly in the stage adaptation of the hit 1985 film Back To The Future.
They took time off from the West End show last week to enjoy a romantic mini-break together at luxury retreat Soho Farmhouse in the Cotswolds.
Amber plays Lorraine Baines McFly, the mum of Ben’s character who flirts with him after he travels back in time in his space-age motor.
The Sun told last week how Amber had split from her boyfriend Nick Kyriacou for a third time and deleted all traces of him from her Instagram account.
She has grown close to Ben since they joined the show in the summer, accompanying him to the Stage Debut Awards in London last month.
She commented on a snap of them together: “Adore u.”
A theatre source said: “Amber and Ben are both young and eager to have long-lasting careers in theatre and are both Welsh, so they have lots in common.
“Eyebrows were raised when they both asked to take time off from the show at the same time and then went on holiday together, but it’s sweet to see.
“Clearly things are going well.”
A second source said: “Amber and Ben are just enjoying spending some time together at this stage.”
Since winning Love Island in 2017 with Kem Cetinay, Amber has gone on to star in hit shows including 9 to 5 The Musical, which earned her a seal of approval from star of the original movie comedy country music legend Dolly Parton.
Hopefully this new relationship is as successful as she is.
ALBUM IN DUA COURSE
DUA LIPA has started working on her third album – while still on the road with her Future Nostalgia tour.
The pop beauty snuck into a recording studio in New York this month and I’m told she hung out with hitmaker Mark Ronson.
Fans will no doubt be hoping the pair are working together once more after teaming up in 2018, alongside Diplo and Silk City, for their dance hit Electricity.
Dua previously said of the new record: “I feel even more liberated in a completely different way. And even more in control than I thought.
“Freedom, especially as a woman, means to be able to take things into your own hands, to have control over the things that you believe in.
“To really have a voice.”
Dua, who was last week in London at the Vogue Forces of Fashion conference, is set to kick off the final leg of her tour next month with shows across Australia and New Zealand.
IS KATE FUR REAL?
KATE BECKINSALE has left me wondering if she is fur real with these latest snaps.
The beaming actress caught a flight with a fluffy pooch and an unimpressed cat.
She was seen in LAX departures checking in on her moggy – which gingerly stuck its head out of a luxury pink carry-on bag.
Opting for style over comfort, Kate wore chunky leather platform boots and ripped blue jeans.
She added a burst of colour with a bright yellow coat.
The animal lover has certainly got airport chic down to purr-fection.
JESSE THE MAN FOR BILLIE
BILLIE EILISH has sparked rumours she’s dating The Neighbourhood frontman Jesse Rutherford.
Footage emerged over the weekend of them holding hands during a trip to Universal Studios Hollywood.
Jesse was also seen on Billie’s brother Finneas’s Instagram story.
Billie admitted to Capital FM’s Roman Kemp that she had enjoyed multiple romances but likes to keep them secret.
She added: “Even the ones that I’ve had, with the tiny amount that I’ve let the world see, I regret.
“I think about the people that have made their relationships public, and then they break up, and it’s like, ‘What if it goes bad?’.”
Billie was at the theme park to check out the Halloween horror mazes.
But if she was hoping to keep her romance under wraps then the trip may have been more trick than treat.
JAMIE OLIVER has a new venture after his string of Jamie’s Italian restaurants came a cropper.
The TV chef has joined Uber Eats with the range Pasta Dreams.
To help up-and-coming chefs, £1 from the sale of every dish will be donated to Springboard, a charity that works to inspire young people in the hospitality, leisure and tourism industry.
Sounds like a recipe for success.
FEAR IS ZO WAY TO LIVE
ZOE KRAVITZ has told how she tries “to live without fear” but that social media makes it hard.
The actress daughter of rocker Lenny told Elle magazine: “That really is my goal in my personal life and in my career, to live without fear.
“I think fear is crippling and dangerous. Social media is a big experiment that we’re all participating in, and to pretend like we understand it is a joke.
“I have had my ups and downs with it. I’m sure it’s helped my career in some ways, but I also think it’s hurt it.”
She added: “I didn’t really sit and think about it, which is sometimes my problem.
“I’m a very impulsive person. That’s one of the problems with social media in general.”
TAIKA CUE FOR RITA
RITA ORA’s wedding to Hollywood director Taika Waititi has been a major inspiration for her upcoming third album, I’m told.
Insiders tell me the collection – her first since 2018’s Phoenix – is largely written by Rita and contains a number of ballads about finding The One.
Rita, who married Taika this summer, has even taken on the role as an executive producer.
A source said: “Rita has poured her heart and soul into this album.
After her last record she decided to learn how to produce and has effectively taken on the role of executive producer.
The majority of the songs have been written by her and tell the story of going from party girl to settling down with Taika.
“The plan is to release the album in the first half of 2023, but nothing is set in stone.
“During her recent trip to New Zealand she snuck into a studio and recorded another song, so it’s not in the can just yet.”
Rita has said about her new music: “I wanted to make this very raw.
“Maybe get a few bottles of whatever you drink when you listen to this album.”
MADISON SHOWS HER HAND
MADISON BEER took the plunge to release her single Showed Me (How I Fell In Love With You).
The US singer rocks this daring black gown in its accompanying music video, which sees her try her hand at poker.
The track is a modern take on the Sixties classic You Showed Me by The Turtles.
Madison said of the single: “It’s this edgy sound that feels like the right kind of sexy for me.”
I’m sure it will be trending on TikTok in no time.
YULE LIKE SAM’S GIFT
SAM SMITH’s follow-up to the collaboration with Kim Petras will be far more wholesome than the pair’s No1 hit Unholy.
I can reveal the Lay Me Down hitmaker, who has topped the charts for three weeks, will soon release a Christmas tune to spread a bit of Yuletide cheer.
A source said: “Sam knows festive music can be lucrative and fans loved the other songs the singer put out at this time of year, so a new track just made sense.”
In 2014 Sam, right, released a cover of Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas. Then in 2020 there was four-track festive EP The Holly & The Ivy, including single The Light- house Keeper.
At that rate there may be enough material for an entire Christmas-themed record sooner than you think, but a fourth regular studio album is on the way first.
The four-time Grammy winner plays the Royal Albert Hall on Friday and Saturday – the singer’s first UK shows in four years.
Sam is expected to debut new songs there too, so audiences are in for a treat.
