They were rumoured to be growing close last month, after he split from his long-term model girlfriend Taylor Bagley over the summer. The Arctic Monkeys rocker, 32, looked utterly smitten as he smooched and chatted to Louise, who is a dead ringer for his ex of five years, Alexa Chung. The pair looked to be getting on famously, laughing away as they chatted while sipping on cocktails at the luxury hotel. Louise went for a quintessentially French vibe in a chambray sundress teamed with pumps, a beret and a blazer slung over her shoulders.

Alex, meanwhile, stuck to his signature retro look in a pale pink shirt tucked into high-waisted trousers and leather boots. Things only recently ended with Taylor so he isn’t rushing into anything serious. Her friends know he is exactly her type so she is obviously very happy they have grown close. New face: Sources last month claimed Alex is in the early throes of a romance with Louise, who resembles Alexa Chung pictured in with similarly defined features and tousled brunette tresses.

Gorgeous: Sources said he and Louise pictured ‘enjoy each other’s company’ and the brunette beauty has always ‘held a flame’ for Alex.

But behind closed doors they were really close for a long time and very much in love.

Done: It comes just days after it was reported that Alex had split from long-term model girlfriend Taylor Bagley, with sources saying the pair called it quits over the summer.

Singer Alex Turner had been struck down by laryngitis which also forced the postponement of their concert in Glasgow. Thankfully for the Arctic Army, Alex showed no signs last night of the vocal issues which had plagued him. Turner turned in a flawless performance to put the most positive of spins on what had previously been a PR disaster.

Arctic Monkeys frontman Alex Turner has promised fans a new single will arrive soon. The band’s return was officially confirmed in January following the launch of their revamped website, brand new logo and announcement of their first tour date in four years, and now Turner himself has given word on when to expect new music.

But amid the hype surrounding the album was an intriguing side story when news emerged of a special lady in the life of Alex Turner, the group’s enigmatic frontman and songwriter. Not only, it seemed, was the pair’s relationship fuel for various songs, but for the first time Turner had relinquished full writing control and had unusually co-written a track with his then beau.

A source told The Sun newspaper: “It is still very early days but Alex has been spending time with Louise during the band’s current tour.

Things only recently ended with Taylor so he isn’t rushing into anything serious. And it seems Louise has had her eye on the year-old rocker for a while as she admitted in that she wanted to marry him after attending one of his gigs.
