Duffy’s dating a rugby star!

Welsh singing sensation Duffy has decided to keep her dating circle close to home by dating countryman and rugby player Mike Philips.

The 25-year-old ‘oercy’ singer previously revealed her ideal man would be Welsh and have a good physique. She said, “I like someone funny with handyman skills. A good handyman has a good body. I like Welsh and Italian men.”

She is said to be smitten with Mike (27), but his friends are telling a different story. Like his teammate Gavin Henson, who is in a relationship with singer Charlotte Church, Mike has reportedly always wanted a famous girlfriend.

A source says, “Mike and Duffy went for their second date and they have fallen for each other. Mike got her number from his agent a couple of weeks ago and texted her. It’s like Gavin and Charlotte: He wants to raise his profile and fancied Duffy so thought he’d try his luck. As soon as she agreed to a date, he dumped his poor girlfriend Claire. He makes no secret that he wants to be the new Gavin and Charlotte. Claire is gutted.”
