STRICTLY star Viscountess Weymouth has been stepping out with a hunky, young model.
Il 35enne, whose British husband owns Longleat safari park, was spotted at the Dolce & Gabbana fashion show in Venice.
Emma, wearing a leopard-print dress, was pictured on 29-year-old Alessandro Egger’s arm outside the glitzy Hotel Cipriani.
Alessandro, who was in a red leather jacket, shared the image on Instagram on Monday, with the caption: “Say no more”.
There is no suggestion that Emma and Alessandro are romantically involved.
And fashion sources insist they are “just good friends”.
But the pair were pictured enjoying a boat ride together before heading to the designer event later in the evening.
Weymouth’s 47-year-old husband, Ceawlin Thynn, 8th Marquess of Bath, is the son of the rakish late Lord Bath who had 74 mistresses he called “wifelets”.

Una fonte ha detto a The Sun: “Alessandro is a hot property on the fashion scene and has a stunning girlfriend in Italy and, ovviamente, Emma is married.
“But while she’s been in Venice, they have been stepping out with each other and enjoying the city together.”
At Dolce & Gabbana’s star-studded event in Venice, Weymouth partied into the night with Kourtney Kardashian, socialite Kitty Spencer and Vogue editor Edward Enninful after the glittering catwalk show.
The designer show, watched by an audience of 400 which also included A-listers such as Jennifer Lopez, Gatto Doia, Kris Jenner, Christian Bale and Dame Helen Mirren, was held in St Mark’s Square in the northern Italian city at the weekend.
Emma, who is a contributing editor at Vogue magazine, has spent much of the summer abroad with friends while her posh husband spends his time running the sprawling Longleat estate and safari park in Wiltshire.
At the start of August, lei era pictured in a striking red bikini as she enjoyed a beach day with her family in the southern French resort of Saint-Tropez.
Emma and Ceawlin have two young sons, who have featured on her social media accounts enjoying the summer holidays.
The fashionable TV chef was a contestant on Strictly Come Dancing in 2019 when she was paired with Aljaz Skorjanec.
Emma was the sixth contestant to be voted off that series when she lost to BBC broadcaster Mike Bushell in the dance-off.
She became the first black marchioness in British history when her husband inherited his father’s title.
Ceawlin, 47, who took over the running of the 900-acre state from his father in 2010, was last spotted in Italy with Emma at the luxurious wedding of Kitty Spencer, niece of Princess Diana, and millionaire fashion tycoon Michael Lewis in July.
Ceawlin’s eccentric dad who died aged 87 l'anno scorso, lived on the country estate, famous for its pride of lions.
His “wifelets”, some of whom were said to have lived on the estate, were immortalised on the walls of a spiral staircase in Longleat House with his Bluebeard’s Gallery of portraits.
The madcap lord left £23million in his will but snubbed the 74 mistresses, with most of his fortune left to his wife, Anna.
Serbia-born model Alessandro had been holidaying in Perugia, Italia, with his model girlfriend Madalina Doroftei before the two headed to Venice for the Dolce & Gabbana event.
The couple are often pictured together and Madalina recently shared a snap captioned “TheEggers” on her Instagram.
She also shared a picture from the Dolce & Gabbana after-party at the weekend of her beau Alessandro and actor Vin Diesel enjoying a drink together.
Alessandro and his agent last night declined to comment but friends said he was happily engaged to Italian Madalina.
Emma Weymouth was also contacted by The Sun for comment.
Madalina was scouted by an agency in Romania at the age of 14.
And the swimwear model was involved in a Guinness World Record-winning fashion event — the Mount Everest Fashion Runway in January 2020.
It was held at a height of 17,515ft at Kala Pathhar near the mountain’s base camp in Nepal, making it the highest altitude fashion show.
