In what I’d call a Titanic u-turn, Kate Winslet has secretly rekindled her relationship with model Louis Dowler.
The couple, both 35, dated for four months last year but split when Kate reportedly decided that she wanted to be alone.
Now relatives of the easy-on-the-eye model have confirmed the pair are back together, after they spent a romantic holiday meeting his family in Cornwall this week.
Speaking from his home in the seaside village of Lelant, near St Ives, Louis’ grandfather Jack Pearce said: “They are on holiday down here.
“He brought Kate round yesterday and it is the first time I have met her.
“We went for a pub lunch. She is a very attractive girl. She was polite and very friendly. They didn’t talk to me much about their personal life but they seemed very much together.”
Louis grew up in Penzance before becoming a professional stud model and moving to London, where he has worked for Burberry and Louis Vuitton.
He was spotted on Wednesday taking Kate along the town’s historic Chapel street. They later visited Marks & Spencer and then the local fish market. Which would have been very romantic.
His sister Natasha, who works in Specsavers in the port town, said yesterday: “They were only on holiday down here for a short while. He brought her down to meet me for lunch last Wednesday and she was lovely.”
Kate and Louis have been spotted together in New York and Edinburgh in the past two months, fueling rumors they’d rekindled their relationship.
Attempting to woo Kate back, he took her on date nights to places like London club Mahiki. No mention of a fish market though. He clearly saved the best ’til last…
