Matt Le Blanc appears to have gone public with his relationship with a Top Gear producer who’s 17 years younger than him.
The 48-year-old Top Gear presenter has been spotted at a horse racing event in West Sussex with the show’s 31-year-old producer Aurora Mulligan, who was ‘giggling’ at his jokes all day apparently.
Aurora previously appeared on a Top Gear sketch as a bride, and while the BBC previously denied the relationship was anything but ‘strictly professional’ a new report claims ‘a romance is blossoming’.
And now, a month later, a source from Top Gear has reportedly told The Sun: ‘This has become a romance.
Matt spends more time with Aurora than anyone else in the crew and there’s definitely a blossoming relationship there.’ Blimey.
Matt Le Blanc is said to be dating a Top Gear producer 17 years his junior.
The former Friends star, 48, was spotted enjoying a day at the Hickstead Derby with Aurora Mulligan, 31, on Saturday.
The Mirror originally broke the story of their romance back in May - and it appears the pair are going from strength to strength.
According to onlookers, the pair looked "besotted" and were "very tactile" with each other, with Aurora laughing at Matt's jokes as they watched riders compete.
An onlooker said: "Matt and Aurora were inseparable throughout the whole day.
"They were very tactile and Matt seemed to be very taken by Aurora as he laughed chatted intimately with her.
Aurora just kept laughing at all his jokes and is clearly besotted with the American superstar.
A Top Gear source added: "This has become a romance.
Matt spends more time with Aurora than anyone else in the crew and there’s definitely a blossoming relationship there." Aurora played a bride in a stunt for the BBC show in March, donning a big white dress as Matt and co-star Chris Evans pretended to crash a wedding.
