The 'Rehab' star Amy Winehouse has been spotted on a dinner date with film director Reg Traviss and was later seen kissing him outside her London home.

A source told The Sun newspaper: "Amy really likes Reg. They've been seeing each other for a good few weeks now. He's a decent guy with his feet firmly on the ground. He's cultured and talented and they talk and laugh about all sorts. And they're openly affectionate in front of friends and family now too."

News of Amy’s new romance comes just weeks after she split from Blake Fielder-Civil, her ex-husband who she had reunited with at the beginning of this year.

One fan of the 26-year-old singer’s new romance is her father Mitch Winehouse, who has previously blamed Blake for her drug addiction struggles.

Speaking about Reg, Mitch said: "I'm happy she's got a new boyfriend. I'm happy she's moving on with her life. He's a normal guy, very nice."

Amy recently splashed out on a £2.5 million home in Camden, north London, to live in with Blake once the conditions of his release from jail allowed him to reside in the English capital again.

However, cracks appeared in their romance over the singer’s “flirtatious” behaviour and Blake was believed to have ordered her to join him in Sheffield, North England, sparking their split.
