Heavy D, 43, has struck up a relationship with 21-year-old YouTuber Bryony Anne Harris
Heavy D is dating a YouTuber half his age.
The 43-year-old reality TV star - whose real name is Colin Newell - has struck up a relationship with internet sensation Bryony Anne Harris, 21, after he wooed her with a Nando's.
Speaking to The Sun Online, he said: "The age difference isn't a problem - love conquers all.
"I'm young at heart! I have loads of energy and enthusiasm, nobody thinks I'm 43. Age is just a number, boom!"
The pair initially bonded on Twitter when Bryony - who once appeared on 'World's Strictest Parents' - sent him a message before he went on 'Celebrity Big Brother'.
He explained: "We'd been tweeting before I went into the house, then she saw me on the show and loved my personality so we arranged a date.
"I took her for a cheeky Nando's, boom! Then we went for a walk on Brighton pier and I was the perfect gentleman."
However, Heavy - who is known for his catchphrase 'boom' - wasn't happy with their first date and arranged for them to jet out to Marbella, Spain, for a sun-soaked break away.
He said: "We really liked each other's company so I suggested we went for a short break and we flew to Marbella and now we're boyfriend and girlfriend."
And, although they've only been together a matter of weeks, the 'Storage Hunters' star is adamant Bryony is "the one."
He said: "I knew straight away, boom. I don't mess around. It's meant to be."
