The 2023 Met Gala brought us what we thought was a pretty exciting new couple alert, when the event's organiser and co-host Anna Wintour attended the event arm in arm with Bill Nighy.

They looked amazing, as well – Anna wore a couture Chanel dress and jacket adorned with diamond-studded cats, while Bill wore a simple yet sharp navy suit.

A source has said in the past that the couple were in a relationship and keeping things private, but someone from Bill's team has just shut down these rumours.

A representative for Bill told "Bill and Anna have simply been great friends for two decades. They are not in a relationship."

A shame! Fans and watchers of the Met Gala red carpet were rather distracted from the legendary fashion looks that the event is known for, due to the possibility of this celeb match.

One tweeted: "forget the fashion for a minute we need to talk about the fact Bill Nighy and Anna Wintour are together like what", while another posted: "can't focus on the Met Gala looks rn i'm too wrapped up in finding out everything about Anna Wintour and Bill Nighy's relationship."

Rumours have swirled with speculation since 2010 about whether Bill and Anna were romantically involved. Over the last few years, they've been seen out for dinner in both New York and Italy, with Bill once presenting the Vogue editor with a rose. Adorable, whether or not the act was platonic.

As far back as 2015, he told the MailOnline: "Obviously I have nothing to say about that. There are a lot of rumours about me and probably about Anna Wintour."

Of course, they would make an incredibly chic celeb couple, but it's still pretty cool if they're just really good friends, we guess. Platonic love forever.
