Dec Donnelly Finds Love With His Manager Ali Astall: 'They've Adored Each Other For Years

17 August 2013

Dec Donnelly has reportedly found love with his manager, Ali Astall. The pair are believed to have formed a close bond after a decade of working together.

After "adoring each other for years" the couple have reportedly turned their friendship into a romance, and told their bosses at celebrity agency James Grant Management that they are officially an item.

A source told The Sun newspaper: "They've adored each other for years and people have often thought they were together - but it's only recently they finally became an item. They kept it quiet for ages but are at last coming to terms with being a couple in public."

Dec and Ali are said to have been on a series of secret dates that have been going on for "several months", and have regularly been spotted out and about together in Chiswick, West London, where the two both live.

The source continued saying: "To be honest, it hasn't come as much of a surprise to some because they'd always been close."

Dec has been predominantly unlucky in love since splitting from Sky Sports News presenter Georgie Thompson in 2011 after a two-year romance.

The Geordie star's longest relationship was with TV actress Clare Buckfield, who he dated for 11 years before they separated in 2003. Recently Dec was allegedly linked to former Pussycat Dolls singer Ashley Roberts after the pair had a flirt-fest on the last series of I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!

The Geordie comic spoke to Radio Times earlier this year and explained he's very particular when it comes to his women. He said: "People often ask why I haven’t settled down yet. Perhaps I’m incredibly fussy."
