MILLIE: ‘Her New Rage’
She might have moved on but Millie Mackintosh is not happy about her ex’s close friendship with her former pal
In recent weeks, Professor Green seems to have to put his divorce from Millie Mackintosh behind him… with a little help from his friends. And reportedly, it’s Caroline Flack – also a pal of Millie’s – who he’s been keeping close by.
In 2011 Pro Green, AKA Stephen Manderson, released the track At Your Inconvenience, with the lyrics: ‘I developed an obsession with Caroline Flack, I wouldn’t mind having a go on Caroline’s … ’.
Pro and Millie, 27, called it quits in February after two years of marriage. ‘It is on amicable terms,’ read their statement. But just days before that, a fan mentioned the track that Caroline ‘stars’ in on Twitter and the 37-year-old presenter made her feelings pretty clear, replying sarcastically: ‘I remember being SO PLEASED when I heard it.’
Caz and Pro, 33, exchanged flirty Twitter exchanges around 2010 – later deleted by the rapper – before Caroline started dating musician Jack Street. They split last year and she’s now linked to illustrator Blue Logan. However, Caroline and Pro have been increasingly getting closer – something that’s irritated his ex.
‘They’ve always been close. It used to annoy Millie and it still does,’ an insider tells Look. ‘Caroline and Stephen are just on the same wavelength. There’s nothing going on at the moment, but there’s potential.’
Both Caroline and Pro have also been hanging out with chef and mutual pal Gizzi Erskine. And Caz, who won 2014’s Strictly Come Dancing, appears to have taught them some moves. Gizzi recently tweeted a Youtube clip of a dance routine, asking: ‘@carolineflack1 @professorgreen can we learn this next time’, along with a laughing cat emoji. Pro replied: ‘@Gizzierskine @carolineflack1 can we learn to pack it in at a decent hour as well please.’
And despite Millie moving on with fellow EX-MIC star Hugo Taylor, she’s apparently still keeping a ‘close eye’ on her ex. Well, we’ve all been there…
