It’s said the pair holidayed at beachfront hotel Caesars Palace last week, taking in the breathtaking views and eating like royalty at luxury Italian restaurant, Scalini.
Ashley has been dropping sly hints that she’s off the market, having shared plenty of dreamy pics from Dubai, including an Instagram Story showing a slight glimpse of her new man.
The american star posed in the back of a taxi, with MailOnline identifying George’s hand resting on her thigh.
According to the publication, Ashley and George are ‘smitten with each other.’

‘They have chosen to keep their relationship private for now but gradually have started sharing snippets from their life together on social media,’ a source said.
‘George is extremely successful in his own right, creating artwork for massive names and establishing himself in his craft from a young age.’
Ashley is thought to be totally unbothered by their age gap as ‘they have similar interests’ and George has ‘inspired her creatively.’
‘She hasn’t felt this way in a long time.’
While he’s far from a fellow pop star, George – who is 17 years Ashley’s junior – is a creative in his own right, having recently collaborated with boxer Francis Ngannou for his fight against Tyson Fury last Saturday.
He decorated the martial artist’s boots with his own designs, adding to his client list of stars.

It’s not known how he and Ashley connected, but George is also pretty active on social media.
Boasting 39.3k followers on Instagram, the artist and tattooist recently shared snaps from his Dubai trip and while she didn’t leave a comment, Ashley liked his post.
The series of shots showed George posing by the sea, as well as snaps of the buildings and the fancy grub.
As for the rest of his feed, George’s Insta mainly consists of the ink he’s tatted on people and paintings, as well as his trips to the United Arab Emirates.
His romance with Ashley is her first proper relationship since splitting from Giovanni Pernice.

They met in 2018 when Ashley reached the final in Strictly Come Dancing, partnered with professional Pasha Kovalev.
Following their public romance, the Italian dance star dated Love Island’s Maura Higgins.
Announcing their breakup, Gio wrote on Twitter at the time: ‘@ImAshleyRoberts and I have made the decision to separate as a couple. We remain friends and wish each other well for the future.’
Ashley has, otherwise, kept her love life pretty private, especially in recent years.
However, she was once at the centre of a romance rumour storm when she was said to be dating TV presenter Declan Donnelly.
The Geordie Britain’s Got Talent host, 48, reportedly enjoyed a short romance with the Heart Radio presenter after her stint on I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here! in 2012.

Ashley also joined Ant and Dec on Saturday Night Takeaway, with plenty of flirting going on, much to the amusement of Ant.
Ashley previously said about their relationship: ‘We’re trying to keep it out of the public eye. We’re just getting to know each other.’
However, she added: ‘We’re having fun, but I’m single. I love both those guys.’
Despite whatever flirtatious tension between them coming to an end, Ashley and Dec remained pals and she attended Dec’s wedding to Ali Astall in 2015.
Ashley has even been linked to Prince Harry in the past, with the former Dancing On Ice judge partying with him and later telling The Mirror: ‘If the Prince asked me out on a date, I would probably say yes.’
Reps for Ashley Roberts have been contacted for comment.
