'Strictly Come Dancing ' star Flavia Cacace is dating dance partner Jimi Mistry.
The professional dancer got together with the actor - who was her partner on the present series of the BBC show until he was voted off a fortnight ago - just weeks after splitting with ex-'EastEnders' star Matt Di Angelo, whom she also partnered on the programme, in 2007.
According to the Mail On Sunday newspaper, the couple were seen getting close at the 20th Annual Drapers Fashion Awards at London's Grosvenor House hotel, where they were spotted holding hands under a table.
Jimi was also spotted subtly giving 31-year-old Flavia a stroke on her leg, while dining with another 'Strictly', star; Brendan Cole and his wife Zoe Hobbs.
Jimi - who has also starred in films including 'East Is East' and 'RocknRolla' - is the third member of the 'Strictly' cast to have been romantically linked to Flavia, as she had an 11 year relationship with another of the show's dancers, Vincent Simone, which she broke off in 2007, a year after she joined the show, to get together with Matt.
Upon parting with Matt earlier this month, Flavia put it down to their busy schedules.
The Italian-born beauty said: "We have broken up. It was due to our work - travelling so much and being away from home so much. We are still in touch and very good friends."
