Peter Andre is dating Elen Rives, it has been reported. The Australian singer first met Spanish model Elen at a dinner with mutual friends in London last November and soon started meeting up afterwards. Their relationship was rumbled after they were spotted out on a date in the capital, according to reports. Peter's spokesperson was quoted confirming the romance to the Daily Star, saying: "Peter and Elen are dating - it is early days, but this is not just a date. They are in a relationship and have been for a couple of months." TV presenter Fiona Phillips also substantiated the reports on Radio 2's Breakfast show as she chatted to Richard Madeley, who was filling in for Chris Evans. "I know Elen and I know this to be true. They have been seeing each other for a couple of months very quietly. But they've been spotted at posh hotel Claridges the other night on a date," she said. Both have been in long relationships before - Peter divorced ex-wife Katie Price in 2009, with whom he has two children, while Elen, who is about to star in Dancing On Ice, has two children with Chelsea footballer Frank Lampard. Peter's ex-wife Katie appears to have given her blessing to the romance, as she tweeted: "One of my best friends Andrew Gould said Elen was nice as they ran the marathon together last year."
