Sophie has dated the hunk for six months according to The Sun but the post was the first time they have gone public with their relationship.

The couple met in February while they were volunteering in Uganda for a charity which helps children.

Diags split with Fran back in 2017 when they had an acrimonious split after she initially joined TOWIE as his housemate.

She had starred on The Only Way Is Essex for seven series and was known for her relationship with Diags. They had dated for three years, before confirming their split in September 2017.

Sources claimed at the time that Fran ‘felt lost’ in the wake of their break up and was left upset after being sent messages alleging Diags had brought girls back to the apartment she had shared with him.

Insiders revealed at the time: ‘They don’t talk at all now that they’ve split… she is utterly heartbroken it’s come from him and can’t stop crying.

‘She never had any idea he was ‘that’ guy. They were best friends and best friends don’t do that to each other.’
