The Cat's out of the bag!; SNAPPED! TV beauty with her new man.
BRUMMIE beauty Cat Deeley has been snapped getting her claws into a new mystery man.
The blonde children's TV presenter, who was linked with hunky barman Henry Besant in April, is pictured enjoying the sunshine with her new beau - PR executive Mark Whelan.
He is described by pals as an 'on the rise advertising and marketing consultant' and works for companies such as Rizla and Budweiser.
It is rumoured that Mark has been dating Sutton Coldfield beauty Cat, who now lives in London's swanky Belsize Park, for more than a month since the couple met at a showbiz bash.
According to a friend, brown-haired Mark and 24-year-old Cat - who presents SM:TV with Ant and Dec and was placed seventh in this year's poll of the 100 Sexiest Women in the World - have hardly been apart since their first meeting.
'Cat is one of the most beautiful women in the world and Mark doesn't want to let her out of his sight,' he said.
'It is early days, but he may have found the one.'
Thirtysomething Mark is creative director for London-based Cake Media and is also responsible for the firm's offshoot company, The Ideas Exchange.
But when the Sunday Mercury approached his firm to ask Mark about his fledgling relationship, his aide said there was no comment to make on his new girlfriend.
'I can't really say anything,' she said. 'Mark hasn't said anything about it and, as far as I am aware, isn't planning to.'
The firm, which is run from an old mission hall in east London and employs 55 staff, was founded in March 1999 and since then has gone from strength to strength.
It now boasts Reebok, E4, Kelloggs, Nintendo and Vodafone among its clients, and has been the driving force behind several wacky advertising campaigns including a swimming pool filled with Evian which featured at the 1999 Creamfields summer festival.
Mark also helped to organise the V2000 music festival, hosted at Weston Park, Shropshire where bands including Travis, Moby, James and All Saints entertained thousands of music lovers.
The company also creates adverts, puts on gigs, designs clothing, generates radio and TV ideas, pulls off stunts, gets media coverage and puts on sports events.
Cat's new high-flying man isn't the only reason the CD:UK star is smiling. Last week she was revealed as the new face of Braun toothbrushes in a pounds 250,000 deal. She stripped off for a publicity shoot with celebrity photographer David LaChapelle to promote Braun's new 3D Excel power toothbrush.
