The unlikely womanizer, Pete Davidson, and his much-rumored new girlfriend, “Bridgerton” star Phoebe Dynevor, were spotted “holding hands and hugging” in a quaint English town by a local schoolgirl.
Davidson and Dynevor, who have yet to confirm their romance, were spotted in the town of Caverswall, Staffordshire, by 14-year-old Tilly Wagg, who appears to have conquered the showbiz media by saying, “It seemed like they were in a relationship. and they seemed happy together. “
Wagg, who plays a young Lady Whistledown, told local news site StokeonTrentLive: “They walked past our house and we saw them holding hands and hugging.”
Wagg says he reached out to Davidson, 27, to take a selfie and that the comic was in its usual form.
“I went up to him and asked him if it was Pete Davidson and he said ‘no’ with an English accent, but then he said, ‘I’m just kidding’ with an American accent. It was pretty funny. “
Wagg, however, is not an “SNL” viewer or a fan of Davidson’s film, “King of Staten Island,” but rather recognized him for his high-profile past engagement to pop star Ariana Grande.
“They were really nice and charming,” he says of the couple. “I knew about Pete Davidson in part because he’s Ariana Grande’s ex and I listen to some of his songs.”
Grande is said to have penned her hit “Thank u, next” after her romance with Davidson ended in October 2018.
Dynevor, 25, is currently in North Staffordshire filming the new drama “The Color Room,” in which he plays Clarice Cliff, a pioneering ceramic artist of the 1920s.
Page Six first reported on the unlikely romance on Monday after word broke that Davidson flew from New York to his hometown of Manchester in the UK. Davidson was photographed in Altrincham, Greater Manchester, where Dynevor has been staying with his mother during the pandemic, on Sunday.
The Netflix star had spent time in New York, where Davidson lives, in early February. She was there to film her role on the hit show “Younger”.
A representative for Dynevor declined to comment, and representatives for Davidson could not be immediately reached.
