We’re not ashamed to say we’ve recently developed quite the crush on Dragon’s Den star Steven Bartlett. Not only is he a savvy business brain and the youngest Dragon in history after founding social media marketing company Social Chain, he regularly shares his knowledge on popular podcast The Diary of a CEO – which has featured loads of our fave celebs like Molly-Mae Hague, Liam Payne and Rochelle Humes – and he’s rather easy on the eye too.

But there’s bad news if, like us, you’ve taken a bit of a fancy to Steven as he’s reportedly back together with his girlfriend Melanie Vaz Lopes.

According to reports, he opened the first night of his The Diary of a CEO Live tour with a huge public display of affection and declaration of his love for Melanie as the House Gospel Choir sang Stevie Wonder's I'll Be Loving You Always and love heart confetti showered from the ceiling – leaving her in tears.

One audience member told MailOnline, “It came as a real surprise given Steven has never opened up about his love life but he dedicated an entire segment of his show to Melanie.

"It was a huge romantic moment – everyone thought it was part of a big proposal, he didn't get down on one knee but it's clear Melanie is The One."

Why did Steven Bartlett and his girlfriend Melanie Vaz Lopes break up?

Steven dated Melanie for a year before he ended things to focus on his career. The businessman has previously admitted his busy work life can often mean he hasn't got time to focus on relationships. He explained, "The way it is with me, between the hours of say seven in the morning and nine o' clock at night, I am in the zone, I've got total tunnel vision. I honestly do not realise that there's anyone else outside of my business and rooms I sit in that exists in terms of my personal and private life.

"So if my family or girlfriend text me, or message me during the day, the chances of me engaging in that meaningfully in that period is virtually impossible. In the evenings I'm often consumed with the day and I find it hard to switch off and engage with other relationships and that also costs those relationships."
