It is simply one of the weirdest celebrity pairings ever known, and would seem far too fantastical to believe if the Daily Mirror hadn’t published pictures proving it – Elvis Presley’s former wife, Priscilla is dating British BBC kids presenter, Toby Anstis!
Pictures in yesterday’s publication showed 67 year old Priscilla and Anstis, 27 years her junior, tenderly embracing after enjoying a romantic meal at San Lorenzo restaurant in Wimbledon.
According to the paper, this was the couples third date after Priscilla met The Broom Cupboards star last month when she was playing the Wicked Witch in nearby pantomime Snow White.
A source said: “They have mutual pals in the States and a friend suggested they meet up.
“Toby has a thing for older women and is a big fan of Elvis so they hit it off immediately.
“After swapping numbers, Priscilla got him some tickets to see her in panto in Wimbledon, and they met-up after.
“He then went to see her again because he was so impressed.
“They got on really well over dinner and Priscilla was incredibly flirty – she thinks Toby is gorgeous.
“Toby often goes to LA so he is hoping things may continue when he goes to America in the next few weeks.”
Heart FM DJ Anstis is best known for his role in children’s television in the 90’s having taken over Philip Schofield’s role in The Broom Cupboard working alongside his puppet side kick, Otis the Aardvark.
Meanwhile Priscilla, thought to be worth £70million after divorcing Elvis in 1973, is best known for her film career following her highly publicised split from the King.
However, both parties deny they are involved, despite the pictures suggesting otherwise, and Toby has even planned a fourth date for him and his “good friend” when he flies over to the states to cover the Oscars for Heart FM.
A source said: “They have a very fun, flirty friendship and Toby hopes to reconnect once Priscilla’s stint in panto is over.
“They have swapped details and the plan is for Toby to be visiting early next month.”
Last night presenter Toby took to social networking site, Twitter, to play down the news, tweeting: “Just 4 record, myself and 3 others inc Priscilla Presley had a lovely dinner the other night.
“She is wonderful, but just friends havin fun:)”.
