The 30-year-old was first linked to Boris following the collapse of his second marriage last summer and the pair are reported to have moved in together in a £1m London flat.
The MP for Uxbridge and South Ruislip is said to be besotted with the former Tory public relations chief, who recently started a new job at Bloomberg, and insiders say he even has marriage on his mind.
Others speculated that Boris may be preparing to launch a leadership bid, despite his pledge to back Theresa May in Wednesday’s no-confidence motion against the Government.
Watching from home, one tweeted: ‘Boris has lost weight. All loved up,’ while another remarked that he ‘looked younger’.
Following last night’s Commons vote, some viewers were more interested in Boris’ 12lbs weight loss and ‘youthful’ haircut – branding him a ‘lean mean Brexit machine’ (pictured)
Twitter user Rose Byrne added: ‘Boris has lost a lot of weight, must be love.’
Another said: ‘Yes Boris Johnson looks like he’s lost weight, straightened his tie and got a new haircut… he’s a lean, mean Brexit machine.’
One wrote: ‘Well Boris had his hair trimmed up and lost some weight – God help us.’
Insiders say Boris and Miss Symonds are planning to go public after hosting a pre New Year’s Eve party for family and friends before jetting to Greece for a romantic holiday.
A source told the Mail: ‘They are very loved up. It’s completely sincere on both their parts, and it wouldn’t surprise me at all if they ended up getting married once his divorce is all settled.’
While many remarked on Boris’ makeover, others speculated that he may be preparing to launch a leadership bid, despite his pledge to back Theresa May on Wednesday
And one insider added: ‘He’s been talking about how much weight he has lost recently, and I think Carrie has put him on her diet.
‘She is definitely advising him and I think that is one of the reasons she left her job, because she felt more loyal to him in the end than the party.’
While one source claimed Boris plans to get engaged to his ex-Tory spin doctor girlfriend but is ‘desperate to avoid messing it up’.
A friend of Johnson told
‘It’s sweet to see. He’s like a puppy dog around her and very solicitous but desperate to avoid messing it up.’
