Dean Gaffney, 44, is said to have found love again – with a woman almost half his age.
The former EastEnders actor is said to be dating the beautiful Russian model Valerina, who is 25 years younger than him.
Father-of-two Dean has previously stated his desire to date only women over 30 – as his twin daughters are both 25.
According to sources, actor Robbie Jackson spent some quality time with the Russian model, but turned down romantic offers.
Valerina is said to have split her time between her native Russia and Dubai, where Dean has been on holiday in recent weeks.

Talking to SunA friend of the former soap star said the pair had become close in the past few days.
“She’s absolutely gorgeous so it’s no surprise that she caught Dean’s eye. And he has a great way with women – they fall at his feet,” they told the publication.
“Dean insists they’re just mates and it’s all just a little bit of fun.”
Insiders revealed that Valerina could be spotted on Dean’s recent Instagram Stories, but the actor was “careful” not to reveal her face or tag her account.
They add where the two potential lovebirds were residing when they got to know each other.
“Dean is a great laugher and conversationalist so it’s no surprise that he caught Valerina’s attention,” the star’s friend continued.
“Blokes wants to know what his secret is, given his history of gorgeous women flocking to hang out with him.”
The Mirror has contacted Dean’s representative for comment.
In 2019, Dean pledged to only date women in his 30s after breaking up with his ex-model girlfriend Rebekah Rose-Ward – now 28.

“I only date women in their 30s,” he told The Sun in January 2019.
“I don’t want to date someone my daughter’s age, it’s just weird for them.”
She added: “I’m looking for a mature relationship, I’m in my forties and I don’t want someone too young.”
