London, (ANI): Welsh singer Duffy, real name Aimee Ann Duffy, is said to be dating British Lions rugby star Mike Phillips. Sources say that Phillips, 27, dumped his girlfriend last week so that he could start dating Duffy, 25, who had a No1 hit with Mercy.
“Mike and Duffy went for their second date this week and they have fallen for each other," the Sun quoted a source as saying.
“Mike got her number from his agent a couple of weeks ago and text her. It"s like Gavin and Charlotte - he wants to raise his profile and fancied Duffy so he thought he"d try his luck. As soon as Duffy agreed to a date he dumped his poor girlfriend Claire. He makes no secret that he wants to be the new Gavin and Charlotte. Claire is gutted. He had set his sights on opera singer Katherine Jenkins a while back, but she wasn"t interested," the source added.
Gavin Henson, 27, and Charlotte Church, 23, were christened the Posh and Becks of Wales when they started dating in 2005.
