Woohoo! Much like Charlie, Kimberley’s social media accounts are littered with images of her lavish life
The first hints at their union came when the duo shared matching images of heart-shaped sky writing in Monaco before she posted a shot of three of Charlie’s pals on her father’s yacht with the hunk tagged in the shot.
While he is in the early stages of his new relationship, Charlie insisted he has not cheated on Ellie after he was spotted out with a mystery woman days ago.
Sources told The Sun: ‘The woman was a friend. He told Ellie he was seeing mates and left it vague. He knew she would kick off if he was out with another woman and he just wanted a bit of time away from her.’

Not short of drama in their respective love lives, Kimberley hit headlines in her native New Zealand earlier this year when it was revealed she was engaged to property developer Greg – before news of their split arose in April.
At the time of the New Year’s engagement, which took place at Charlie’s favoured holiday location Gstaad, sources said: ‘Greg proposed over dinner in Gstaad, in a private chalet that was made of glass and it was snowing outside, so was beautiful.’
The couple were dogged by drama however when Gregory’s ex-girlfriend Irina Fedotova launched a smear campaign against him, leading to her conviction for harassment and the eventual deterioration of Kimberley’s engagement.

The Russian model admitted two charges of harassment without violence and was fined at Westminster Crown Court, after she created a fake newspaper article to ‘smear her ex as a pervert, sent him suggestive texts and pretended to be pregnant’.
Following the torment, a source close to Kimberley told New Zealand site
‘Slade and Kim are no longer engaged. Kim is feeling embarrassed and very let down. The family members are not going to lower themselves to comment on the court case, or Slade or Fedotova, they are a distant memory. It is an understatement to say that it had been stressful and very upsetting for Kim.’
