PIC EXC: Dragons’ Den’s Steven Bartlett and girlfriend Melanie Vaz step out in matching hoodies

They recently rekindled their romance after he flew to Bali to win her back.

And, Dragons’ Den star Steven Bartlett, 29, and his French influencer girlfriend Melanie Vaz Lopez held hands as they wore matching hoodies while out and about in London on Friday.

The couple donned the ‘Diary Of A CEO’ branding to ensure they were walking adverts for the entrepreneur’s ongoing podcast and show.

Steven chose to wear his hoodie with light gray track bottoms, which he tucked into rolled up socks, and paired with white trainers.

Melanie walked around in a pair of black and white animal print leggings, with her oversized hoodie, and carried her things in a white tote bag.

The multi-millionaire businessman dated Melanie four years ago but split from the travel blogger because he couldn’t engage with her between ‘seven in the morning and nine in the evening’ due to his busy work schedule.

But Steven recently confirmed he is now in a long-term relationship with Melanie after flying 22 hours to Bali in a desperate bid to win her back.

Serenading Melanie on the first night of his show The Diary of a CEO Live, he confessed his love for her, before the House Gospel Choir sang Stevie Wonder’s I’ll Be Loving You Always, as heart confetti of love fell from the ceiling – leaving audience members stunned thinking he was about to propose.

A member of the public told MailOnline: “It was a real surprise considering that Steven never talked about his love life, but he dedicated an entire part of his show to Melanie.

“It was a huge romantic moment – everyone thought it was part of a big proposal, he didn’t kneel but it’s clear Melanie is the one.”

Steven and Melanie, who run beauty and wellness business Auraya, met on Instagram in 2016 after bonding over one of the entrepreneur’s relationship videos.

They dated for a year until Steven ended their romance after struggling to juggle his business commitments with a girlfriend, which he now regrets.

He flew to Bali to win Melanie back after hearing she was there on vacation, only to be told she had been in a new relationship since their split.

But after spending four days together on the tropical island, Melanie fell in love with him again, and the couple have been together ever since, keeping their romance a secret until now.

Indeed, Steven admitted that he even hid his romance from his fellow Dragons, who regularly mention him as being single in his first series of the BBC One show.

Steven, who moved to the UK aged two from Botswana, dropped out of university to pursue his dreams as a businessman.

He fell out with his parents, especially his mother, who was “heartbroken” after believing Steven had given up on her upbringing, that she hadn’t grown up.

But Steven found success with social media marketing agency The Social Chain, which was valued at £300m when it went public.

This year, he became the youngest Dragon ever and quickly became the man to impress among budding entrepreneurs entering the investment den.
