Fun Lovin' Criminals hunk Huey Morgan has been secretly dating Gladiator actress CONNIE NIELSON for six months.

The pair have reportedly been keeping their love quiet because they live in different countries and wanted to be sure their feelings would last the distance.

However, a friend of the couple reveals, "They have to make a bit of an effort because Connie lives in Milan and he's in New York. They've been to parties but everyone assumed they were just pals."
