Kamal's keeping us all guessing about his secret new Mrs World

Former Mr World Kamal Ibrahim has found his very own Mrs World, the Diary can reveal.

Limerick native Kamal revealed to the Diary that he had finally found a girlfriend after being single for over a year and a half. However, the pageant king is remaining coy about the identity of his new lady.

"I have been seeing someone, I haven't been in a relationship since about a year and a half ago but I have met somebody. We are not official just yet," he confirmed.

The Limerick man added that the relationship was working out perfectly for the pair because they are both in the showbiz industry.


"She's actually moving to London and I'm really looking forward to that. It's great because she understands the industry I'm in. She kind of gets the whole thing because she's an actress and a professional dancer. So we are both supporting each other.

"She has the same kind of schedule as me, she might have to go off to Paris for two weeks, so I'm looking forward to having her here," he said.

And it looks like his new girlfriend is in for a treat if she likes a man that will cook and clean for her. Kamal admitted that he has always been in touch with his feminine side, and found all the tasks throughout this year's Charity ICA Bootcamp, quite easy.

"The tasks was actually fine for me, I grew up in a big Italian family so I've always known how to cook.

"And I have so many women surrounding me in my life. I work with women, live with women and most of my good friends are women.

"So living with so many females during the competition was not odd for me at all. I had to do cooking tasks for the Mr World competition as well.

"I am very happy to say that I am very much in touch with my feminine side," he laughed.

As well as enjoying a new love life, Kamal is also enjoying a successful career, with presenting opportunities coming up for both the BBC and Channel 5.

Kamal also revealed that he has made a very special bond during his time in London, with none other than acting legend Kevin Spacey.

"I'm lucky enough to have formed a strong friendship with Kevin since I've been here.


"I've been doing a lot of acting training and he's been really helpful with pointing me in the right direction. It's great to have him looking after me.

"He's a great guy. He's so passionate about what he does and he does a lot of work with kids, he has his own foundation where he holds workshops for kids who want to learn more about the world of arts.

"That's something I would love to get involved in, I love working with children's charities and I am the ambassador for Variety," he said.
