Katherine Jenkins admits to Blue Peter romance
The Welsh opera diva Katherine Jenkins has admitted that she is dating TV presenter Gethin Jones.
Rumours of a budding romance have been circulating ever since the couple met when the singer performed on the BBC’s Strictly Come Dancing, on which the Blue Peter presenter was appearing.
Since then the pair have also been spotted at a Take That concert in London.
Now Katherine has revealed that they are dating, though stressed that it is still “early days” as they both have busy schedules at the moment.
While Gethin is still in the running for the Strictly Come Dancing crown, Katherine is currently touring her Viva La Diva show around the UK alongside former ballerina Darcey Bussell.
Commenting on the announcement, PR guru Max Clifford told the Daily Mirror: “Neither of them need a romance for their careers, so the hope and belief is that it’s genuine.
“Gethin is a great looking lad and Katherine is stunning and a very successful girl.
“It’s a breath of fresh air to see two people get together for the right reasons,” he added.
