Ashley Roberts' 'normal' boyfriend

Ashley Roberts' 'normal' boyfriend

Ashley Roberts is dating a "normal" guy.

The former Pussycat Dolls singer has begun a romance with a mystery guy, who doesn't work in showbusiness and isn't from London or Los Angeles.

She said:" At the moment I'm dating someone but it's such early days I don't know what's going to happen.

"He's just a normal guy. We both have our lives going on so we meet in the middle and it makes it a bit exciting."

The 34-year-old beauty thinks dating fellow stars has its advantages and disadvantages, just as being with someone not in the public eye does.

She said: "I've dated somebody who is not in the industry and they have to understand the business because it is a funny one.

"I've also dated guys in the limelight and that's tough at times.

"It's nice to have a bit of balance. Somebody who understands it but is not necessarily..."

Though Ashley adores her friend Kimberly Wyatt's daughter Willow, 15 months, she insists the tot doesn't make her broody.

She told Britain's HELLO! magazine: "It melts my heart when I see Kimberly with Willow and watch her flourish within a family unit because I'm so happy for her.

"When I see her I think, 'That will be amazing some day' but I don't want it right this minute."
