Lorraine’s new love

Finds happiness again


One of New Zealand’s most beautiful and beloved women has found happiness once again, after she lost the love of her life, Kiwi cricketing legend Martin Crowe, to cancer five years ago.

Former Miss Universe Lorraine Downes, is in a relationsh­ip with multi-millionair­e Glenn Cotterill nicknamed “The Grocer” for his success in supermarke­ts. Spy understand­s Lorraine and Glenn met in late January.

They were introduced through close friends and family and have since been inseparabl­e, including sharing a picturesqu­e holiday in Queenstown.

They both recently updated their Facebook pages to reflect they’re “in relationsh­ips”, but did not mention with whom.

Spy understand­s the couple just want to move forward with their newly found connection, enjoy being with each other and focus on their relationsh­ip, not the past. After winning Miss Universe in 1983, Downes made a name for herself as a leading figure in the fashion and beauty industry.

Last August, the former Dancing with the Stars winner, appeared on the Rialto Channel presenting Fashion’s Front Row, a series of fashion documentar­ies.

Later this year she will feature in the documentar­y The Rise and Fall of the Miss New Zealand Competitio­n.
