Oh no, not another Welsh Posh and Becks! Duffy steps out with rugby star Mike Phillips

One is a highly successful Welsh singer and the other a hunky rugby star.

But Duffy and boyfriend Mike Phillips will be hoping the similarities to fellow celebrity couple Charlotte Church and Gavin Henson end there.

Since Church and Henson revealed this week that they were to split up, Duffy and her beau have already acquired their nickname - being dubbed the new Welsh Posh and Becks.

Hand in hand: Duffy and new boyfriend, Welsh rugby star Mike Phillips, enjoyed a shopping trip in Bath yesterday

The pair have been together since September and were pictured yesterday while shopping in Bath.

And while they looked happy and in love - their height difference was extremely noticeable as they walked along hand in hand.

Duffy comes in at a diminutive 5ft 2in, while her new beau is over a foot taller than her at 6ft 3in.

But 25-year-old Duffy - whose hit Mercy sold 6million copies - might want to heed a warning from her scrum-half lover's ex, former Miss Wales Claire Evans.

She told of a note Phillips, 27, left, saying: 'I want to be the Beckham of rugby, have a famous wife, loads of money and good health.'

Church and her British Lions-star boyfriend said on Tuesday they were ending their five-year relationship.
