Simon Webbe gets a good luck snog from new Greek girlfriend ahead of Eurovision final

By Jessica Satherley

Kiss good luck? Simon Webbe was spotted picking up his new Greek girlfriend Maria Kouka in a London park and kissing her passionately

Before he jetted off to Düsseldorf to compete in Eurovision, Blue’s Simon Webbe was treated to a supportive kiss goodbye from his Greek girlfriend.

The love-birds couldn’t keep their hands off each other as they frolicked and snogged in a London park.

And Simon got so hot and bothered by 24-year-old Maria Kouka that he tore his shirt off, exposing his well-defined six pack.

The Eurovision hopeful, who will join his Blue boy band mates in Saturday’s grand final, has even convinced Kouka and her Greek friends and family to vote for him.

Simon, 32, told the Daily Star Sunday: ‘Maria and I have been together since February and she’s been really supportive since I’ve been busy preparing with Blue for this Saturday’s competition.

‘She’s even asked her friends and family back home in Greece to vote as they are eligible to vote for our UK entry from over there.’

And by the looks of their park affection, there’s no doubt that Maria will be voting for her new beau.

The pair were even wearing matching outfits of jeans and army-green vests on their day out, alongside Simon’s British bulldog.

Maria was born in Athens and lived in Africa and the US before moving to London, where she works as a model.

She says on her website of becoming a model: ‘I knew it was going to be difficult, but I didn’t care how much I would have to struggle, the hours I would need to put in, or the sleep I would lose out on!

‘All I knew is that I had a dream and no one or nothing was going to stand in my way.’

The All Rise singer’s new relationship comes after splitting with his long-term love Layla Manoochenri.

His former girlfriend of six years ended her relationship with the singer after arriving home to find him on bed with The Only Way Is Essex star Chloe Sims.

Layla, 24, told the Daily Mirror: ‘I got inside [the bedroom] and he was in a compromising position with Chloe in the bed. The freaked out the moment they saw me.

‘She had a little white dress and was on top of him. He had no top on but had his jeans on. The lights were on in the room so I had a very good view and they looked like they were in the middle of something.

‘I stood there and laughed, what else could I do? I just turned on my heels and left.’

After the incident made headlines, Simon denied having an affair with the Essex star and his spokesperson told MailOnline: ‘Simon 100 per cent categorically denies having an affair with Chloe whilst he was with Layla.’

But as he puts the past behind him, his new romance with Kouka seems to be heating up and she wrote on his Twitter page today: ‘Good morning beautiful.’

While Simon revealed via Twitter today: ‘Off to Cologne to promote I CAN for Universal Germany exciting stuff nice to be back on the road again!’

He will join his band mates Lee Ryan, Antony Costa and Duncan James on stage to represent the UK this week in Eurovision’s Song Contest.
