The 'Lewis' actor and 30-year-old model have reportedly struck up a romance after developing a friendship on TV's 'Bear Grylls: Mission Survive' last year.

A source said: "It's very early days but both Laurence and Vogue consider themselves an item. They're enjoying spending time together and have had some great nights out. It's very recently turned into a romance because they get on so well."

The pair first started getting close in April, a month after Laurence, 38, separated from his wife Billie Piper - with whom he has seven-year-old son Winston and a six-year-Eugene - and they hit it off because they have both been through major break-ups and Vogue was able to comfort Lewis.

Laurence finds Vogue - who split from Westlife star Brian McFadden in July 2015 - "hilarious" and they've been able to bond over the shared experience of ending a long-term relationship.

The insider told The Sun newspaper: "Laurence finds Vogue hilarious and they have so much fun. The fact they were both experiencing big break-ups at the same time only strengthened their bond and eased the pain they were feeling."

Their strong connection was clear in April, as Vogue planned a night out for Laurence and their friends from the extreme reality show to keep his spirits up as he dealt with his split from Billie, 34.

At the time, a source said: "Vogue has texted Laurence to make sure he is OK and they will be going out with others in a show reunion."
