Baby, I’m your man: Wham! star Andrew Ridgeley’s new love is super-rich divorcee ‘with the longest legs in Belgravia’
Andrew Ridgeley was left heartbroken when he split from his long-term partner Keren Woodward in November 2017.
But the former Wham! singer has found love again with a super-rich divorcee known for having ‘the longest legs in Belgravia’.
Yesterday, Ridgeley and Amanda Cronin made their first public appearance together to watch the tennis at Wimbledon.

‘They have been on several dates already,’ one of Miss Cronin’s friends told the Daily Mail. ‘This is their public debut, which shows they’re serious about their relationship. Things have moved quickly.’
Miss Cronin, 53, a former model who was the subject of Channel 4 programme The Millionairess And Me earlier this year, landed a multi-million-pound divorce settlement in 2019 from Monaco energy mogul Mark Daeche after six years of marriage. They have a daughter together.
She lives in a £3.5million home in Belgravia, central London, which once belonged to fascist leader Oswald Mosley.

Miss Cronin complained to the Daily Mail Diary in December: ‘I am looking for love, but I never get approached. I want a man who is kind, passionate, sincere and authentic.
‘I don’t want to do dating apps – I just believe the right person lands in my life, it always has.’
Ridgeley, 59, founded Wham! with the late George Michael after meeting at school in Bushey, Hertfordshire.
The band scored five UK number one singles and Ridgeley amassed an estimated fortune of £20million.
But he and Bananarama singer Miss Woodward, 61, surprised fans in 2017 by announcing they were separating after 25 years. He said at the time: ‘We retain a great affection for one another.’

Two years after their split, they were pictured walking hand in hand in London but Miss Woodward later scotched rumours that they had rekindled their romance.
The pair first got together a few years after Wham! broke up in 1986, with Ridgeley opting for the quiet life in Wadebridge, Cornwall, while Miss Woodward toured with Bananarama.
‘He enjoys the anonymity he has, but also he has a complete understanding of me and why I am still doing it,’ Miss Woodward told the Mail in 2009.
They lived in Cornwall with her son from a previous relationship with model David-Scott Evans until she returned to London in 2017.
