Gemma Oaten has found herself a new in man in producer Scott Walker, weeks after admitting her fling with Nick Knowles put her off dating
Gemma Oaten is reportedly dating producer Scott Walker.
The 32-year-old actress has struck up a romance with the hunky Australian not long after revealing her fling with Nick Knowles put her off dating.
The pair were spotted attending events in London together last week, including the Jog-On to Cancer bash held at Kensington Roof Gardens in West London last Wednesday (12.04.17).
An insider says the couple are in the "early" stages of a relationship.
A source told the Sunday Mirror: "It's early days but she is happy. Scott is a lovely guy and very supportive.
"They make a good team."
The former 'Emmerdale' star recently revealed her brief relationship with 'DIY SOS' host, Nick - which ended when he reportedly dumped her to reconcile with his estranged wife - left her feeling "burned".
She admitted: "It was weird. It was very eggy and it did put me off dating.
"I've been a little bit burned and now is the time for me to be a little bit selfish and look after me.
"It's not been easy. I saw him at the National Television Awards and you could cut the atmosphere with a knife.
"But I'm OK now. And if he's all right that's brilliant. I genuinely don't wish him any ill will.
"I actually wish I could see him and talk to him about it. But that will never happen."
The 54-year-old TV presenter previously defended himself after he came under fire for how the fling ended, by saying they dated for "less than a week" during a "turbulent, traumatic" time in his life when he was estranged from Jessica Moor, the mother of his young son.
Taking to his Twitter account, after Gemma lashed out at him in a newspaper interview, he said: "Life is not about what happens to you, it's about how you deal with it. This year we faced a miscarriage, the break down of our marriage and cancer without being disrespectful about each other at any point. We are saddened for each other and for the sake of our young son that this is being played out so publicly.
"The story in today's paper is something that happened (in the space of less than one week) during a turbulent, traumatic time and more to the point - whilst we were separated. It is unfortunate we are having to relive it purely so someone can financially gain from exploiting our private life.
"With everything that's happened this year, even discussing this seems very trivial in comparison to what we have dealt with and are still dealing with. As always, our answer is united, as we are. We have enjoyed eight years as best friends and nothing will change that. (sic)"
