Faria Alam, famed for her affairs is back in news with Channel 4's Celebrity Big Brother. But reportedly the 39-year-old Bangladeshi is now dating a male model 17 years her junior.

The former personal assistant who had trysts with 57-year-old England coach Sven Goran Eriksson and ex-chief executive Mark Palios, 52, while working at the Football Association, has been seeing Kit Proudfoot since October, according to The Mirror.

It quoted a source close to former model Faria saying: "He's a surprise choice for her as she normally likes successful older guys - we've never had her down as the tomboy type. But for some reason she seems captivated by Kit. It must help that he's very handsome - it's quite well known that their relationship is highly physical.

"She's 17 years older than him but she keeps saying how he's keeping her young. They met in a London nightclub a few months back and although she tells friends it's just a casual fling, it's obvious she's quite smitten with him."

Kit, who is signed to top agency Models 1 and has starred in a string of high-profile fashion shoots, even accompanied Faria to the Big Brother house on Thursday as she joined the show.

The source added: "There is a real spark between them and Faria is really proud she's got Kit on her arm. He's a bit of a hit with the ladies and is known for dating stunning young models but there is something about her he finds intriguing." Faria hit the headlines when her affair with bed-hopping Eriksson was revealed in 2004.
