Antonio Banderas, 50, puts on a loving display with girlfriend Nicole Kimpel, 34, as they hold hands while strolling around Chelsea

He recently moved to London to undertake a design course, and it looks like Antonio Banderas' stay in the capital won't be a lonely one.

The 54-year-old actor was spotted in Chelsea on Tuesday, hand-in-hand with his 34-year-old girlfriend Nicole Kimpel.

The Dutch investment consultant wore a coy smile on her face as Antonio led them down the upmarket street.

Antonio has enrolled at Central Saint Martin to study fashion where Alexander McQueen, Stella McCartney and John Galliano learned their craft.

'It’s something that has been on my mind for a long time and probably one of the best schools in the world is here...and so I am going to start studying with them,' Antonio said on Loose Women.

'It makes me feel actually very young to put the elbows on the table again and try to understand another reality.'

He added: 'Of course I won’t stop my professional life, I’ll continue acting, directing, but this is a new thing.'

The couple had recently been on holiday to his hometown of Malaga to enjoy the Holy Week celebrations.

Antonio and his ex-wife Melanie Griffiths confirmed in June last year that they were splitting after 18 years of marriage.

The former Hollywood power couple are parents to 18-year-old daughter Stella, who's enrolled at NYU.

'We have thoughtfully and consensually decided to finalise our almost 20-year marriage in a loving and friendly manner honoring and respecting each other, our family, and friends and the beautiful time we have spent together,' they said in a statement.

The ex-husband and wife have also put up their 15,000-square-foot Italian revival mansion up for sale for $16.1 million.

They bought the property back in 1999 for $4.2 million, and joined it with a nearby lot worth $1.3 million a year after.
