Last month, Maura Higgins stepped out with her supposed new man after the pair were spotted out for dinner in Mayfair and, in a new turn of events, we now know who the mystery hunk is.

The former Love Islander was first seen near Amazonico restaurant with an unknown mousey-haired man towards the end of last week.

It has now been revealed that the man in question is in fact actor Bradley James who notably starred in BBC's Merlin as King Arthur, and also as Varga in Underworld: Blood Wars.

Bradley, 37, was born in Devon, but moved to Florida during his childhood. He then returned to the UK during his teens to pursue a career in drama, which he fulfilled after undertaking a classical acting training at Drama Centre London.

Bradley, who follows Maura on Instagram, looked casual in jeans and a jumper as he and the 29 year old headed for their (presumably) date. He had covered up his face with a blue mask but, after sharing photos of himself on social media in that same mask, dots were connected and his identity as Maura's date was unveiled.

This sighting comes not long after Maura admitted she was "ready" to start dating again following her split with Curtis Pritchard.

She explained to the MailOnline, "I've been on one date and that was with the guy I was with before Love Island, so I'm not used to the dating scene at all.

"I would be a nervous wreck on a date, which sounds crazy because I'm a confident woman but I wouldn't know what to do myself."

Well, we think Maura looked quite the confident catch as she headed for her London date in a stunning hot pink mini dress and heels (seriously, Maura, where can we get that dress?).

Maura broke up with Love Island co-star Curtis earlier this year after telling fans back in March that, "Curtis and I have made the decision to separate. We enjoyed a great experience from our time in the villa and want to thank everyone for supporting our relationship.

"We tried to make it work but it wasn't to be and I wish Curtis nothing but the best for the future."

Hmm, we wonder how Curtis feels about his ex "young lady" potentially being off the dating market, especially following his recent break-up 🤔.
