ENGLAND cricketer Stuart Broad has been recently linked to 30-year-old pop Star Mollie King, with an inside source revealing: "It’s the early stages but they are both really into each other. It looks like a proper romance."
But who is Stuart Broad, and who else has he dated? Here's everything you need to know and the first picture of the new couple…
Who is Stuart Broad?
Stuart, 31, is a cricketer who has played Test and One Day International cricket for England.
He was born on 24 June 1986 and began his cricketing career as an opening left-handed batsman.
When he was 17-years-old, a growth spurt caused him to become a faster bowler, and bowls right-arm fast-medium.
He played for Leicestershire 2nd XI in 2004 when he was 17 and was giving a full contract for the following season, and played with them until 2007, and joined Nottinghamshire in 2008, where he remains now.
In 2006 he was voted the Young Cricketer Of The Year by the Cricket Writers’ Club.
As a batsman, he holds the second-highest ever Test score made by a number nine (of 169) against Pakistan in August 2010.
In 2016, he was appointed a Member Of The Order Of The British Empire in the 2016 Birthday Honours for services to cricket.
Who has he dated previously?
In early March The Sun on Sunday exclusively revealed that Stuart had been on secret dates with Saturdays and Strictly star Mollie King.
A source told the newspaper: “It’s the early stages but they are both really into each other. It looks like a proper romance.
“Stuart has even said he could see himself settling down with Mollie if it all continues to go well.
“They are well-suited and make an attractive couple.”
Stuart had previously been romantically linked to lingerie model Bealey Mitchell, who he dated for three years.
They split in 2017, but ended on good terms as a source revealed: “They had a good innings together but it just came to a natural end.
“There were no hard feelings between the two and no one else was involved.”
Stuart has also dated Laura Coleman, who is a former Miss England winner.
He ended their ten-month relationship in February 2008, due to his cricketing commitments.
