After meeting last month when she paid her £ 72 for a half hour gondola ride, she is now back in Venice and getting closer once again.
It is not known if Mel traveled before the UK’s second lockdown went into effect to reunite with her gondolier lover, with whom she first enjoyed a six-day fling.
Twice divorced Mel, who has sons aged 18 and 16, looks much younger than her age. As the valiant gondolier, who refused to discuss their appearance, noted himself: “Beauty is relative.
The Manchester-born star was in Venice for a mini-break with a friend and first posted a photo of herself getting banged along a canal while forcing Riccardo the week before the romance reveal.
When asked if he prefers English women, Riccardo, who still lives with his parents, replied: ‘Every person is different, nationality doesn’t matter. Its true no?
But he growled when asked if he was planning to see Mel again. For her part, Mel posted a tantalizing photo on social media of the famous Rialto Bridge with the caption: “Ciao for now”.
After the breakdown of her first marriage to actor Daniel Caltagirone, Mel embarked on a whirlwind romance with Jack Cockings, a roofer, whom she met on Twitter at the age of 28 at the time, he was 16 years his junior.
They married in 2013, but she filed for divorce after just seven months of marriage, later admitting that she had married ‘the wrong person’
She was then briefly linked with singer Olly Murs, 14 her junior, and German golfer Martin Kaymer, who is 15 years younger, before dating comedian Steve Coogan, 55, for six months last year. .
Mel has hosted numerous television shows, including ITV’s Today With Des and Mel, with the late Des O’Connor, and Channel 4’s The Big Breakfast.
