London, Sept 7 : English model Kelly Brook has been on a string of secret dates with England rugby ace Danny Cipriani, if reports are to be believed.
Brook, 28, who is believed to be totally smitten with 20-year-old Cipriani, kept mum about the relationship secret even when grilled on BBC1 on September 5 by Jonathan Ross.
The Strictly Come Dancing star, who has just spilt up from actor Billy Zane, 42, last month, met up with the fly-half as soon as filming was over, and it is the second date for the couple, who first met on September 2 and then again on September 3.
"It's early days but the romance is definitely on. She's said how she likes Danny but is a bit worried he's eight years younger," the Sun quoted Brook's pal as having revealed.
"I expect he can't believe his luck," the pal added.
Cipriani, who wooed Brook over dinner and mushy calls and texts after Tuesday's first meeting, agreed with her to keep the romance under wraps because of their age difference and because she had just ended her relationship with Zane.
Even when chat show host Ross questioned Brook about the romance, she made no mention of it.
"I haven't had that many offers, I haven't been out all that much," she said.
"I'm open to meeting someone but I'm enjoying being single," she added.
