‘He is crossing his fingers that they’ll be paired together by producers for the live shows.

‘He has been chatting to her a lot her behind-the-scenes telling anyone who’ll listen he’d love to be partnered with her so they can spend hours rehearsing together.

‘She’d be his match made in heaven.’

It was recently revealed that the former EastEnders actor was reportedly dating an aspiring model 13-years his junior after meeting at a festival in Kazakhstan.

The claims come after Lee exclusively told MailOnline he was single at the Strictly red carpet launch last month, and added that despite the stunning female pros he wasn’t in the market for love.

A source told the Sun: ‘Diora’s an upcoming model in Europe so it’s no surprise she caught Lee’s eye when they met.

‘They got chatting and really hit it off then and he quickly asked her out, and they already look like a long-term couple — they couldn’t keep their hands off each other on Saturday.

‘It’s still early days but Diora and Lee are getting to know each other and exchanging lots of messages inbetween his Strictly training.’

MailOnline contacted representatives for Lee Ryan for comment.

Diora has been making a name for herself in the beauty contests as she prepares to represent her country in the Miss USSR Monaco 2018 pageant.
