TV star and broadcaster Natasha Kaplinsky is planning to buy a home with former Strictly Come Dancing partner, Brendan Cole, the Sunday Mirror claims.
The pair met during the first series of the celebrity dance contest and their on-screen chemistry soon sparked rumours that they had waltzed into an off-screen relationship.
The paper reports that the couple joined fellow-house seekers during a recent viewing of a show home in south-west London's exclusive Battersea Reach complex.
It is claimed that the couple were then given a tour of a 600,000 three-bedroom property at the front of the luxury riverside development.
Unnamed fellow viewers told the paper the couple looked happy during the half-hour tour.
"Before looking at the apartment Brendan was discussing finances very loudly with a blonde woman. Natasha was asking about the gym. She wanted to know if it was open 24 hours," one fellow buyer told the Sunday Mirror.
"They were laughing at her asking about being able to use the rowing machine in the middle of the night."
The alleged on-off relationship between Natasha, 31 and 29-year-old New Zealand dancer, Brendan has been the subject of tabloid rumour for some time.
The Sunday Mirror claims the pair were recently spotted kissing backstage at the Halifax theatre where Brendan was starring in pantomime.
