Tom Hiddleston is certainly making the most of his newly single status.
The Night Manager star (35) split with Taylor Swift two weeks ago after a three-month whirlwind romance, but wasted no time getting back to business as he took to the Emmys on Sunday night.
The actor was presenting the award for Outstanding Directing For A Limited Series alongside Quantico actress Priyanka Chopra (34) and the pair are said to have hit it off after their introduction.
They were among the hundreds of stars at the Emmys after-party where they were seen "openly flirting with each other" and swapped numbers, according to E! News.
"Tom had his arm around her and held her close. Afterwards, Tom and Priyanka talked closely and were holding hands at one point for a few moments," a source said.
"Priyanka fixed Tom's bow-tie and then the two kissed on both cheeks."
"Priyanka and Tom said goodbye and she told him that she will see him later. They left the event about a minute after each other."
It's a fitting end to the Hiddleswift drama as Swift was said to be concerned about Tom's desire to be "so public" after asking her to be his date to the Emmys.
She has never walked a red carpet with a boyfriend before.
"Tom wanted the relationship to be more public than she was comfortable with. Taylor knew the backlash that comes with public displays of affection but Tom didn't listen to her concerns when she brought them up," another source told Us Weekly.
Hiddleston is said to be "embarrassed that the relationship fizzled out."
