It comes two years after her marriage break-up from digital analyst Ryan Clark
Pals said the pair, who have been together for a number of months, were smitten and had met each other’s families.
They went public at the Dancing with Heroes ball at the Landmark Hotel in London on Sunday night, when Katherine, 43, was seen with her arms around 60-year-old Tony at their table.
A source said: “Katherine and Tony have been dating for some time. It is well known among their family and friends.
“They have kept their relationship out of the spotlight but have attended a number of events together this year including Royal Ascot and the ITV Palooza earlier this month.
“At the Dancing with Heroes ball Kelly couldn’t keep her hands off Tony and was stroking the back of his head all evening.
“They have met one another’s families and went on holiday together with their respective children earlier this year.
“Katherine is incredibly happy with Tony and it’s clear they are a really good match.”
Gentleman Jack actress Katherine split from her husband, digital analyst Ryan Clark in April 2020.
The pair, who have two daughters, met in 2011 and married in Las Vegas two years later.
Katherine confirmed they decided to end their seven-year marriage and was seen moving out of the family home in London.
