Aisleyne Horgan-Wallace revealed she has ‘never met’ her US basketball player boyfriend in person as she opened up about her new ‘cyber’ romance on Thursday.

The former Big Brother star, 45, insisted she is ‘official’ with the mystery athlete, 29, who is 16 years her junior, despite not ever meeting in real life. 

The reality star said that the hunk is set to fly to the UK to visit her once the basketball season finishes.  

Aisleyne made the admission while speaking exclusively to MailOnline when asked if she had pictures with her new man, but she said: ‘There are none of us together because we’ve not met in person.

‘We met online but are official, there will be pictures when he comes over [to the UK] when his season finishes’.

The NBA season runs from October through to April with teams making the play-off finals continuing to play until early June. 

Hinting that her new man’s team has made the play-offs, the athlete must be signed to either Boston Celtics, Dallas Mavericks, Minnesota Timberwolves or the Indiana Pacers.  

Aisleyne has previously revealed that the ‘gorgeous and tall’ man ‘slid into her DMs’ and the pair ‘hit it off’ straight away. 

Speaking to Closer in a recent interview, she said: ‘He slid into my DMs a while back and we’ve hit it off. He’s gorgeous, tall, hardly drinks and believes in god, which is really important to me. We’re cyber-dating right now and when he finishes his season he’ll come over to visit me – I can’t wait!’

The former reality star, who shot to fame in 2006, also revealed she spent a staggering £7,000 on cosmetic surgery to impress her new mystery boyfriend.

Aisleyne said she feels ’10 years younger’ since going under the knife for her new hunk.

She told the outlet: ‘I look a lot fresher – when I take my dogs out for a walk and catch myself in the mirror in the lift, I’ve done double takes and have a little smile.

‘I had everything pulled up. My face looks tighter and snatched. It’s given me a boost!’

Aisleyne appeared on Big Brother in the seventh series back in 2006 and finished in third place.

She entered the Big Brother House on Day 12 of the show and became known for her personality clashes with fellow contestants such as Grace Adams-Short.

Aisleyne became close friends with fellow contestant Nikki Grahame until her tragic death in April 2021.

Nikki died on April 10, 2021, a day after she was discharged from Dorset County Hospital in Dorchester after a three week stay to treat her for anorexia.

Two years on, the reality show icon was honoured with a heartfelt post from her Big Brother series seven castmate Aisleyne. 

Taking to social media, Aisleyne shared a series of photographs of the pair together, and penned: ‘I will forever protect you even now you’re gone…

‘My little cherub on earth & now in heaven… I love you darling… you beautiful, funny, special woman I miss you dearly all the time. @NikkiGrahame.’

Nikki shot to fame on the 2006 series of Big Brother and gained an army of fans with her iconic phrase ‘who is she?’
