Actor Joshua Jackson's quest for a British girlfriend has ended in success - he's dating sexy socialite HANNAH SANDING.

The DAWSON'S CREEK star expressed his interest in UK women before heading to London for a stint in stage show A LIFE IN THE THEATRE alongside PATRICK STEWART.

And his dream appears to have come true - he arrived at the EMPIRE FILM AWARDS in the British capital yesterday (13MAR05) with the stunning 28-year-old blonde on his arm.

A source says, "Hannah and Josh arrive late and walked straight through to the dinner with their arms around each other.

"They looked very cosy and kept whispering and giggling together throughout the meal."
