Popstar and Strictly Come Dancing star HRVY has reportedly found love again with Emmerdale’s Leanna Cavanagh actor Mimi Slinger, after his split from Maisie Smith
Strictly Come Dancing star HRVY has reportedly found love again with another soap star, after his split from EastEnders actress Maisie Smith.
The 22-year-old singer, whose real name is Harvey Cantwell, is dating Emmerdale actress Mimi Slinger, according to reports.
The 18-year-old played Leanna Cavanagh on the soap for three years before being recently murdered by serial killer Meena Jutla.
Pals close to the couple have told The Sun that they met at the National Television Awards last month and are “completely loved up”.
A source said: “Things are pretty serious between them. They both know each other’s families and their friends have met.
“HRVY and Mimi have a real connection and those around them think they could go the distance because of what a good match they are.
“She is a model as well as an actress and wants to pursue a music career too – so they have a lot in common.
“They’re keeping their relationship off social media for the minute but it won’t be long until they’re Instagram official.”
HRVY previously hinted at his new relationship after he spilled the beans that he had met someone new at the NTAs.
The star told Abbie McCarthy on the Celebrity Search Engine podcast: “Recently I met someone on the red carpet at the NTAs actually.
“She was standing in front of me, and I was like ‘wow, she’s very very beautiful’, and I ended up getting her number and we’ve been on a few dates.”
It comes after HRVY reportedly split from 20-year-old Maisie after they were linked during their stints on the last series of Strictly.
The pair were said to have locked lips at the wrap party, but their romance soon faded away due to their busy schedules and lockdown.
A source told The Sun in March: “Maisie and HRVY flirted like mad on Strictly – and that wrap party snog sealed the deal. They played by the rules on the show and made sure that during the competition they didn’t take any risks.
“Once it was over, however, they were all game for giving it a go. But just a few days after their kiss, the third lockdown came into play and it ended up being a total passion killer.
“HRVY and Maisie’s romance just fizzled out – and both of them have been. Brinkwire presents summary news.
