1. PROLOGUE // WHO IS NORTH'S NEW GIRL?
BAD NEWS LADIES: IRISH HEARTTHROB LUCAS NORTH IS DEFINITELY NO LONGER SINGLE. BUT WHO IS HIS MYSTERY GIRL?
Tall, dark and handsome, Lucas North is undeniably the actor on everybody’s lips right now. His career is going from strength to strength, with no signs of slowing – his appearance as Mr swoon-worthy Darcy in Samuel Beckett’s Pride and Prejudice adaptation begins screening very soon – but it turns out that filming isn’t the only thing in Mr North’s jam-packed diary. Between premieres, photo-shoots and media appearances, North has been photographed locking-lips with a mysterious brunette in Edinburgh town centre just yesterday.
But who is his mystery lady? Rumours are constantly circling about where North’s affections lie – supermodel Lucia Valensa, actress and co-star Laura Marlow, reality TV sweetheart Millie Kendall and Chelsea socialite Poppy Shadwell-Heath – but his latest squeeze was previously unrecognised by the media. But not only is North’s girl unused to the limelight, she’s not particularly rich either. No, after some innocent digging, it has been revealed that Mr North is totally loved up with twenty-three year old PhD student - Charlotte Costello - who is originally from Brighton.
So how exactly did these two lovebirds meet? It is rumoured, courtesy of a source close to Charlotte, that the pair first encountered each other during Pride and Prejudice filming last autumn. Miss Costello worked part-time at the hotel in which North and his cast-mates were staying in, and the rest, as they say, is history.
Despite putting everybody’s famous crush off the market, this blossoming relationship undoubtedly gives us all a lot of hope. After all, Charlotte Costello is no super-famous millionaire actress/popstar – if a student can pull a Hollywood hunk, why can’t the rest of us? Get your false eyelashes on girls; you have no idea which single celeb you could run into next!
Rest assured, we will keep you updated on Mr North and his future romantic exploits with his student beau. Get the news hot off the press by following us on Twitter: @glitzmag.
