Irish-born chat show host Graham Norton has found love again -- with a tall, dark and handsome businessman.
The popular television presenter is head over heels for Trevor Patterson -- who he is said to have met before Christmas.
And the pair are getting along so well they decided to jet off for a holiday to the paradise islands of the Maldives to celebrate Norton's 49th birthday.
The couple spent almost two weeks at the One & Only Reethi Rah resort in the Indian Ocean before returning so Norton could get back to work on his show.
The resort, which is renowned for the privacy it affords its celebrity clientele, is set on one of the largest islands in North Male Atoll, and is adorned with endless white sand coves and turquoise bays. The couple's luxury villa was the pinnacle of tropical luxury and they were afforded their own private beach.
For such an extrovert TV personality, the Cork-born personality has managed to keep his personal life off the radar, dividing his time between his homes in Wapping and Co Cork, and walking his dogs, Bailey and Madge.
But romantically, things haven't always been so good.
When he first moved to London he met an Australian called Ashley, who had such an effect that the star didn't fall in love again for seven years.
Then he bought a house in Bow with American Scott Michaels but that fizzled out just as Norton found fame.
Norton says the relationship was a success in his eyes because it lasted five years -- the longest he has ever stayed with anyone -- but afterwards it compelled him to stay single.
Speaking at the time he said: "I came out of it thinking: I'm quite bad at relationships and I'm probably better off not being in one. I'm sure I'll change my mind if I meet someone, but I do quite like living alone."
Finally there was 24-year-old Kristian Seeber, who moved to Britain to be with him. They split in 2006.
Now a source says Patterson really caught Norton's eye and his good looks, easy going nature and sense of humour have stolen the broadcaster's heart.
"The pair are getting on really well, they have been out to parties around London, on holidays together and things are moving really fast.
"Trevor has a playful sense of humour and is young at heart which suits Graham perfectly. I think this one could go the distance," the source said.
Norton has previously talked about his difficulties with relationships saying: "When they're good they're great; when they're not, they're unbearable."
He added: "Movies end, books stop, songs finish, but you've got to keep going. And no one wants to think about the bickering at the end of When Harry Met Sally, or him f***ing somebody else. Why would they?
"But there's a lot to be said for having your other half," Norton continued.
"It's the difference between going on holiday with someone or going by yourself. It's all about how an experience shared is an experience enhanced. You've got to believe that sharing your life is worth it in some way."
The star, who has won several Baftas and an International Emmy, hosts The Graham Norton Show on BBC 1, which has a heady mix of prank calls, audience interaction and A-list celebrity guests.
