Just week after splitting from her spotlight shy boyfriend Tim, TOWIE’s Amy Childs has reportedly moved on with a one-time First Dates star.

The mum of two is apparently dating Brentford-based boxing gym owner Billy Delbosq, who claimed he was "getting tired of [dating] Essex girls" when he appeared on the Channel 4 flagship dating show in 2018.

Speaking to MailOnline, a source said, "Amy and Billy have been getting on like a house on fire, they're loving spending time together and going on romantic dates.

"Their relationship started online, which only made things more exciting when they finally met in person."

Jake's time on TOWIE was mainly characterised by his on / off relationship with Chloe Lewis and his alleged cheating on her. He finally (sort of) confessed that he'd done the dirty with Megan McKenna in a very emosh scene on a park bench. Ah, precious memories.

They added, "It's early days but their spark is undeniable, and Amy's really hoping that at long last she's finally found someone she can settle down with."

It was less than two months ago that a friend close to Amy told the same publication that she was "heartbroken" after going her separate ways from businessman Tim, saying, "They really hoped to make the relationship work, but the romance between them fizzled out.

"The breakup is still raw, so Amy is taking some time for herself in Ibiza, where she can have some space to get over things."

Amy and Tim went official with their relationship in May 2020 when she shared a cosy snap of them in her car and wrote, "When you finally meet the right one for you, it suddenly becomes clear why everyone else was so wrong .... I love you."

Tim responded with a public declaration of love of his own as he commented, "Love you 😘."

At the time, a source close to the pair told new! magazine, "It's early days but Amy is very excited about Tim. We heard she went on a few dates with him last year but it wasn't the right time and it fizzled out. But they are back in touch and things are going really well. Tim's really good looking and he makes her laugh. He is just what Amy needs and her friends are saying it's so nice to see her happy."
