Following her shock split from 90s boyband star Dane Bowers earlier this year, Love Island 2018 star Laura Anderson signed up for E4 reality show Celebs Go Dating in order to help her find love again.
However, whilst filming for the 11th series of the show wraps, it appears Laura has find a spark with one of her co-stars, and not a member of the public!
33-year-old Laura, who will appear on the show alongside the likes of Sinitta, Liam Reardon and Pete Wicks, has revealed she’s dating former Hollyoaks actor Gary Lucy, who also signed up to the dating agency.
After Laura confirmed she’s the ‘happiest she’s been in a long time’ with Gary, the pair have now been papped walking hand-in-hand as they attended the launch for Laura’s new collection with high street brand New Look.
Speaking last week, the 2018 Islander revealed that although her relationship with Gary started out as friends, the pair are now getting on very well and seeing where things go.
Former Hollyoaks and Footballers’ Wives actor Gary has been single since splitting from his wife Natasha back in 2018, with the 40-year-old signing up for the E4 show to get back into the dating game.
Meanwhile, Laura, who finished in second place with Paul Knopps during the fourth series of Love Island, went on to date Another Level singer Dane Bowers, with the pair even living in Dubai together.
However, following their split earlier this year, Laura took the opportunity to sign up for Celebs Go Dating.

Although 33-year-old Laura didn’t find love on Love Island, it had looked the 2018 Islander had found ‘the one’ in former boy band star Dane Bowers. However, just weeks after announcing they were beginning fertility treatment, the pair split in August this year.

After being one of three women who gave evidence in Netflix documentary The Tinder Swindler, 33-year-old Cecile has joined the agency in hope she can learn how to trust men again.
