Candy has previously dated the likes of footballer Jermaine Pennant and is good friends with WAGs Abbey Clancy and Sheree Murphy.

Speaking of his date for the evening, Pro told The Sun: "She's lovely and really smart too - but don't let her hear me saying that."

Green, real name Stephen Manderson also took Candy - the daughter of Echo & the Bunnymen star Ian McCulloch - to the premiere of new film The Kid before hitting Chinawhite with her on Tuesday.

Meanwhile, the I Need You Tonight hitmaker has a theory to why he is always recognised since hitting the big time…his 'stupid tattoos.'

Pro, who has two visible tattoos on his neck that read Lucky and his initials P.G has admitted that he is always being stopped by fans and can't wear a disguise as his tatts are too recognisable.

Manderson told BANG Showbiz: "It's trying sometimes, but at the end of the day the people I meet in the streets are the ones that matter the most, because they've taken the time to support me."

"What could I do with these bloody tattoos on my neck anyway? Stupid tattoos. I'd have to wear a turtleneck jumper and god knows what on my face."

He added: "But I don't regret my tattoos, I like all of them and they all represent what's that's happened to me at different times so I'm happy with them."
