'It is new, but they are very compatible and have gotten very close quickly,' a source told the publication.

'Mia has been a part of the entertainment industry for a very long time. She gets it and knows how it works.'

The report goes on to claim Mia recently split with a long-term partner - which means she has a lot in common with Richard, who broke up with longtime girlfriend Nicola Dale in January.

Television presenter Sonia is also one of Mia's clients - the makeup artist styled her for the 2022 Logies, sharing several images to her Instagram of the finished look for the event.

The romance was outed when, in a video shared to Instagram by Annika Martyn, Richard stepped off a boat had-in-hand with stunning Mia during a birthday party.
