Dannii Minogue might not be too delighted to hear that her former boyfriend and father of her child has already moved on – and is dating a two-time beauty pageant finalist and reality TV star.
Kris Smith is believed to be wooing blonde bombshell Sara Beverley Jones, who has made her name on dating show Take Me Out, following his split with Dannii in April this year.
News of the romance comes after stories circulated claiming that Dannii and Kris, who have a one-year-old son called Ethan together, were trying to rekindle their romance.
It was even thought that Dannii might have turned down a possible opportunity to return to The X Factor as a judge in the hopes that it might help her and Kris get back together.
But it seems hopes of a reunion are now well and truly over, with Kris and Sara said to be growing “close” to one another.
A source told the Daily Record: “Kris has known Beverley a long time and they have quite a few mutual friends. But recently they’ve grown much closer.
“She’s a really stunning girl and he’s a good looking guy, so perhaps it’s not that surprising. It’s early days but they’re very much into each other.”
The couple confirmed they had split in April, when Dannii announced the news via her official Twitter page.
She wrote: “It brings me great sadness to tell you that Kris and I have separated.
“We still care for each other and ask for privacy at this difficult time, in particular for our son Ethan who remains our number one priority.”
Dannii could have a new project to keep her mind off any possible romance between Kris and Sara though, as apparently Strictly Come Dancing bosses are desperate to sign the 40-year-old Aussie stunner up as a contestant on the new series.
Earlier this week a ‘TV insider’ said: “The Strictly team would love to have Dannii as a contestant. She ticks all the right boxes and would be a huge attraction.
“There has been a series of talks and the ball was very much left in her court.”
None of this year’s Strictly contestants have been confirmed yet, but we’re pretty sure being dressed-up-to-the-nines and shimmying the night away with a sexy hunk of a dancer is one sure-fire way to get Kris’s attention back on Dannii…
