Paddy McGuinness sparks romance rumours with 'cryptic' post after ex Christine reveals he’s ‘dating again’

Paddy McGuinness sparks romance rumours with 'cryptic' post after ex Christine reveals he’s ‘dating again’

Take Me Out host Paddy shared a photo of 'his and hers' mugs on Instagram

Fans of Paddy and Christine McGuinness were left blindsided last year when the celebrity power couple unexpectedly announced their split after 11 years together.

And though neither of the former couple have yet gone public with new romances,Take Me Out host Paddy, 50, has this week sparked rumours that he may have found another special someone.

He and Christine, 35 - who together share three children - first broke the news of their split on Instagram, claiming they’d come to the decision ‘a while ago’, but they planned to continue ‘moving forward as the best parents’ they could be.

Since then, they've also continued to 'live happily in our family home together', despite rumours that Christine may have struck up a romance with gal pal Chelcee Grimes.

This week, however, TV star Paddy has heavily hinted that he himself may have taken a dip back into the dating pool with a cryptic new social media post.

Paddy and Christine McGuinness announced their split in July last year.

The Top Gear presenter - who with Christine shares 10-year-old twins Leo and Penelope and eight-year-old Felicity, all of whom have autism - shared an image featuring two mugs of tea on Instagram, each a different size and syrength, describing them as 'Hers' and 'His' drinks.

Paddy's social media teaser comes just days after his ex wife told press that he was beginning to date other woman for the first time in over a decade.

Speaking to Geordie Shore star Vicky Pattison on her The Secret To... podcast, former Real Housewives of Cheshire favourite Christine admitted: “We talk an awful lot and we're very open.

Paddy hinted at a new romance.

"He has said to me when he's been going on a date. We still live in the same house.

"But I think both of us right now we're very much in the same place, where we're just like just don't really know what to do or where to go."

Speaking of the former couple continuing to live together, news of Paddy's alleged new romance comes just days after Christine also revealed they'd be spending Christmas Day together once again for the sake of their children.

"Of course me and Paddy will be spending Christmas together because we still live in the same house," she told Closer this week.

Christine shares her three kids with ex Paddy.

"I think we’ve got to move on, but for now it works for the children.

"We both go in and out and we’ve got a schedule we try to stick to and a routine for the kids."

Christine - who herself has autism - went on: "The one thing we agree on more than anything is that we just want what’s best for our children, and that’s to be a good mum and dad."
