From Russia with love again – Ronnie Wood finds new love as Katia ends Big Brother fling


Ronnie Wood certainly seems to have developed a penchant for beautiful Russian women.

Six weeks after splitting from his former flame Katia Ivanova, the Rolling Stone was spotted cosying up to a brunette, PR girl Hannah Kamelmacher, at a snooker tournament in London.

With his ex currently taking part in Celebrity Big Brother, 62-year-old Ronnie is thought to have been spending increasing time with the 26-year-old – whose family is from Russia – including taking her out for a meal at the weekend.

On Saturday, the rocker and Hannah spent the evening at a Chinese restaurant in Esher, Surrey, where one fellow diner described them as "looking very cosy".

Ronnie's ex wife Jo, 54, also spied the pair as she walked past the eatery after taking her granddaughter to the cinema.

"She popped her head in and said hello – but didn’t sit down and chat," a source told the Sun. "Ronnie looked totally shocked."

The following day the couple attended the Masters at Wembley to watch Ronnie's snooker pal Jimmy White play.

Afterwards the guitarist is believed to have treated his new love interest to a night in a luxury hotel in the capital.

Meanwhile, as Ronnie enjoys his blossoming romance, 21-year-old Katia has called time on her budding new relationship with Swedish DJ Jonas Altberg, aka Basshunter.

While the couple's chemistry anticipated the big love affair of the last ever Celebrity Big Brother – they have been seen cuddling up and kissing - the model called time on their fling.

"I was thinking we need to stop this thing because it's not worth it in the end and we're more friends anyway," Katia, who had a boyfriend when she entered the house, told the musician.

"Before it gets out of hand. I know I'll regret it because I really care about someone, and it's not worth it."

Any ensuing awkwardness between the pair may be short-lived, since the Kazakhstan-born blonde is up for eviction from the reality show this week.

Katia, former Hollywood madam Heidi Fleiss and rapper Lady Sovereign will all face the public vote on Friday in a double eviction.
