Gareth Gates loved-up as he poses with rarely-seen famous girlfriend

Gareth Gates put on a loved-up display with his girlfriend Allana Taylor as they attended an awards bash in London.

The Pop Idol star looked smitten with the West End actress as they posed for photographs together at the Golden Chopsticks Awards.

Gareth, 39, looked dapper in a black tuxedo, which he wore with his bow tie undone. Meanwhile Allana, who has starred in theatre productions such as Grease, looked stunning in a red fitted jumpsuit complete with a matching tie belt.

The actress sported black open toe heels and a matching handbag, with her hair in loose curls and statement red lipstick. She put her arm around Gareth as they posed together in London last night.

Allana and Gareth went public with their relationship last year, with Gareth sharing photos of them together on Instagram. They've continued to document their romance on social media ever since, and regularly post loved-up snaps from date nights and holidays.

Prior to finding love with Allana, Gareth dated DJ Chloe McLennan, who he met in Ibiza in 2020. The pair split in December 2022.

He was also previously in a relationship with Coronation Street actress Faye Brooks. The pair met when they were both cast in Legally Blonde the musical, confirming the romance in 2013. Gareth popped the question to Faye in 2019, but then in August of the same year they ended their relationship.
