HE announced his split from his stunning ex last year and declared that football was his “priority” when it comes to dating.
But I can reveal that England and Chelsea player Mason Mount has signed up to the A-list dating app Raya in a bid to find love after confirming in October that he was no longer with model Chloe Wealleans-Watts.
Mason — who was named Britain’s most eligible man by society mag Tatler last year for his “chiselled” good looks, “perfect white teeth” and England goals — has described himself as being in the “athletics” industry and linked his profile to Jack Harlow’s song Funny Seeing You Here.
The England poster boy has also included snaps from a trip to Paris in front of the Eiffel Tower and also candid shots showing off his designer wardrobe and impressive trainer collection.
A source said: “Mason is all about football but is also looking to find the right girl to settle down with. He is looking for a genuine connection and hopes that a few dates in the capital can help him find The One.
“Mason has taken his time after the break-up but is not going to rush into anything.”
The midfielder confirmed his split with Chloe in October after five years together.
And when asked about his relationship status by Tatler last year, he said: “Football is my priority.”
Queue of women
Meanwhile model and singer Chloe, who was also a member of London-based girl band 303, is making sure she shows Mason what he is missing and has posted a number of stunning bikini pictures from her recent trip to Jamaica.
The sportsman, who has a reported net worth of £20million and has 5.4million Instagram followers, joins fellow Chelsea player, defender Ben Chilwellin signing up to the exclusive dating app.
But while Mason is bound to have women queuing around the block to get a date, it seems they will have to play second fiddle to his one true love — the beautiful game.
2023 will see amazing festival gigs from the likes of Elton John at Glasto and The Killers at Reading and Leeds.
But one name I wasn’t expecting to see on a line-up was Gemma Collins but it’s happening – at South London’s Mighty Hoopla.
She is pulling on her wellies for the second day of the event in Brockwell Park on June 4, where she will host a stage and sing.
Mimi’s late swipe at ex
MIMI Webb will release her debut album Amelia in March and has already let slip the name of one of her “favourite” tracks.
The House On Fire singer, posing here on a recent night out, shared that she’s written 12 tunes including one about an ex called Remind You, which she recorded in Justin Bieber’s study in THERE.
Hon Instagram Live, she said: “I was in a relationship and I remember I played it to this person and it was about them and it was like a, ‘Don’t f* this up’, kind of song – and then it got f *ed up.
Anyway, at the time it wasn’t, so it was about this whole situation and it is such a great song.
Then I changed it after because I was like, ‘No, I’m not having it about that, I am going to make it more with the update of what had happened.’ It is even better now.”
Sam loves The Toon
Sam Fender has gone back to his roots by debuting a new song to punters at a pub in his home town.
The Seventeen Going Under singer made a surprise performance on Monday as part of a buskers night at the Low Lights Tavern in North Shields.
Sam sang with his guitar at the same pub he first played before going on to scoop two Brit Awards and an Ivor Novello gong.
Robert Webster, who hosts the weekly Low Lights Buskers Night, shared a snap of Sam captioned: “One of me very first Buskers from 8/9 years ago, got up!! Sam Fender. He sang a new song (you heard it here first).”
Sam was first spotted performing at the Tyne and Wear pub, where he also worked at 18 as a barman, by Ben Howard’s manager Owain Davies.
In 2019 Sam donated his Brit Critics Choice trophy to the pub to be turned into a beer pump before doing the same last year with his Best Alternative/Rock Act gong.
If his last album is anything to go by, I can’t wait for this new one to hit the airwaves.
Cash rolling in for Harry
HARRY Styles has had his most successful year yet, banking a whopping £18.5million over 12 months thanks to the success of his hit records.
New financial documents have shown how assets across his four companies shot up in value from £39.4million to £57.9million in 2021.
And he is expected to have made even more in 2022 after scoring both the most successful single and album of the year in the UK.
As It Was, which spent ten weeks at No1, was the biggest hit, while Harry’s House was the top album, according to Official Charts.
He has also taken his hugely impressive Love On Tour around the world over the past 12 months and released the films My Policeman and Don’t Worry Darlingall of which is sure to have earned him a fortune.
This year will see Harry get to work on his fourth studio album between more dates on his long-running tour.
It will restart with three shows in California later this month, followed by concerts in Australia, New Zealand and Asia.
This summer will see him return to the UK and Europe for yet more stadium gigs, finishing in Italy in July.
Following his recent split from film-star-turned-director Olivia Wilde after almost two years, he had a quiet Christmas break back in Cheshire with his family.
Given the mad year he had in 2022, the star can certainly afford to relax a bit now if he wants to.
It’s raining Pussycat’s and dolls
AFTER weeks of bikini photos on Insta it was back to work with a bang for Ashley Roberts yesterday when she returned to the Heart Radio breakfast show.
But the Pussycat Dolls star didn’t let the early start or bleak weather dampen her spirit, as she got all dressed up in this extravagant outfit to head to the studio in London’s Leicester Square.
ADELE will be wishing she could Set Fire To The Pain after revealing she is battling “really bad sciatica.”
The superstar said she now has to “waddle” instead of walk because of nerve pain in her back.
She was on stage at her Las Vegas residency at the weekend when she shot T-shirts into the audience and made the remarks.
Adele told the crowd: “I’ve just got to get over to the other side of the stage. I have to waddle these days as I have really bad sciatica.”
She had better hope it clears soon though or the rest of her year could be uncomfortable indeed.
Adele is due to perform at Caesars Palace nearly every weekend until the end of March. Ouch!
Raye heads back to top
RAYE is on course to score her first UK No 1 this Friday with Escapism after it rebounded up the charts post-Christmas.
It has rocketed up 12 spots to the very top in the mid-week update, having previously peaked at No 1 midweek last month.
In the past six years the South Londoner has had ten Top 40 hits including You Don’t Know Me with Jax Jones and Bed with Joel Corry and David Guettaboth of which reached a peak of No 3.
Her closest competition is Kill Bill by US R&B singer SZAwhich is set to go to No 2.
Making Haye with Una
David Haye has had a belting start to the New Years by holidaying with not one but two beautiful women.
The ex-heavyweight world champion raised eyebrows after sharing this photo of himself in a pool in Morocco with his arms wrapped around his model girlfriend, Sian Osbournewho he got together with in 2021, as well as Saturdays singer A Healy.
The trio jetted off to Marrakech to welcome in 2023, but I can reveal this isn’t the first time they have holidayed together.
Una joined them on a trip to Ibiza in October.
Alongside his insta snap he wrote a cryptic post that said: “If a picture paints a thousand words then this one says exactly what it needs to.”
Jolie’s desire for Paul
PAUL Mescal has befriended A-list actress Angelina Jolie after he impressed her with his performance in the West End show A Streetcar Named Desire.
The Irish actor, who had his breakout role in the 2020 BBC drama Normal People, is currently starring as Stanley in the play in London, which Angelina watched last week.
But she was so enthralled that she then met him for a coffee at the Almeida Theatre’s cafe the following day, along with her daughter Shiloh.
Fans spotted the surprise meeting and shared snaps on social media.
Paul has become a hugely in-demand young actor, so I wouldn’t be surprised if actress-turned-filmmaker Angelina soon snaps him up for one of her own movie projects.
