Top 'Dec' girlfriend for Falmouth Olympic sailing ace Ainslie
8:06pm Saturday 12th October 2013 in Cornwall
Falmouth's Olympic sailing ace Ben Ainslie has been dating TV star Declan Donnelly's ex girlfriend for the last six months, it was revealed today.
In an interview with a national newspaper Georgie Thompson, who used to date one half of TV duo Ant and Dec, said the pair had kept their relationship quiet since April.
It only became public knowledge after one of sports preseter Georgie's co-stars let slip, asking about her weekend with "Sir Ben."
Georgie was quoted as saying: "‘It’s been quite a few months now that we’ve been dating and Ben and I are in a great place."
The pair, both 36, knew each other for three years before becoming a couple.
Georgie described their meeting as a "thunderbolt moment."
Dec and Georgie dated for two years before splitting in 2011.
