Gareth Gates celebrates DJ girlfriend Chloe McLennan's 30th birthday in Manchester

GARETH Gates has been spotted with his new DJ girlfriend for the first time after The Sun Online revealed they were dating in July.

The 36-year-old star and Chloe McLennan stepped out in Manchester to celebrate her 30th birthday, enjoying a trip to Menagerie bar and restaurant.

Gareth was carrying a sleek leather holdall as they made their way out of the building.

He was dressed in an oversized purple T-Shirt with fitted jeans and trainers.

Chloe showed off her tanned legs in a short white dress, which she covered with a chunky knitted jumper.

She added a pair of black boots and gold jewellery – with both stars also wearing black protective face masks.

Gareth took to his Instagram Story to share loved-up snaps from the meal, as well as a brief clip of himself cheers-ing a flute of champagne.

An insider told us earlier this year that Gareth and Chloe have been dating since April after meeting in Ibiza.

It is the singer's first romance since his split from ex fiancée Faye Brookes last August.

The two called time on their relationship after deciding they're better off as friends.

A source said at the time: "Gareth and Faye have been through a lot together but they just can't make it work.

"They are both really sad about it but have vowed to remain friends."

Gareth popped the question to Faye in January last year – just four months after they got back together after a brief split.

He got down on one knee during a lavish New York holiday, presenting her with a stunning 4-carat diamond ring.

The two had met in 2012 when they played on-stage lovers in the UK tour of Legally Blonde The Musical.

Gareth and Chloe's outing comes shortly after it was announced that Faye – who is now loved up with personal trainer Joe Davies – had signed up to Dancing On Ice.
