Diversity's Perri Kiely finds love with his panto co-star months after split from ex

Diversity star Perri Kiely is reportedly dating actress and dancer Jessica Pickles.

The duo are both in Milan and it was said that he decided to take her on the romantic trip.

The 27-year-old is reported to have met Jess when they worked together on a pantomime last year.

At the time, he was still dating his ex-girlfriend Laura Smith.

An insider claimed he suddenly ended things with her before whisking Jessica away on holiday

"Perri really hit it off with Jess while working with her and even invited her to the Diversity Christmas party," a source claimed.

"Everyone was really shocked when he dumped Laura and even more surprised that he took Jess on holiday already."

They continued to The Sun : "Laura has been blindsided by the whole thing."

Mirror have contacted his representatives for comment.

Perri and Jessica have been sharing snaps of themselves enjoying their Italian getaway but there are no glimpses of each other on their Instagram pages.

Two days ago, he took to his page to share a short clip of himself walking in front of the Duomo di Milano.

Their trip comes after Laura hinted at their break-up with a social media post on Valentine's Day.

She shared a solo picture and captioned it with: "Alexa, play Flowers by Miley Cyrus."

The former couple first met in 2020 when Perri was competing on ITV's Dancing On Ice and Laura was working behind the scenes and instantly hit it off.

In January, Laura took to social media, explaining that she was starting a "new chapter" of her life, weeks after sharing a snap of Perri.

Just days after his birthday when Laura gushed over Perri, the dancer gave an interview and when asked if he could have anything for Christmas what would he choose, he failed to mention his girlfriend.

He told the Metro: "I'm not trying to be cringy here but I think just being with family, everything's so busy all the time and times are so tough at the minute."

He told the publication that he would be taking time to "just chill" and "forget about the outside world".

Perri added: "Everything's getting worse, we have one problem then we're fine – well not fine but we're pushing through it – and then another one, and then another and another."
