Lindsay Lohan has had a fling with a British student.

The actress is said to have been secretly dating Christian Arno Williams - a part-time model from Liverpool - after the pair met at the Shangai Fashion Awards, and they have just enjoyed a romantic trip abroad.

A source told the Daily Mirror newspaper: ''Christian is a total cheeky chappy and has no fear. He caught Lindsay's eye and just went in for the kill. He's very good-looking and Lindsay loves the British accent.

''They spent loads of time together and got pretty close, quite quickly. Neither knows whether this will lead to anything or if it was merely a holiday romance but, at the moment, Christian is really happy and quite excited.

''He has only told a handful of people and is trying to keep is discreet, as is Lindsay.''

Since 'The Canyons' star met the Abercrombie and Fitch hunk, they became largely inseparable and she is even said to have given him a £30,000 Rolex watch.

Despite the romantic trip, Lindsay has been left concerned after her laptop - said to have ''private correspondence'' from famous friends including Lady Gaga and nude pictures from photoshoots stored on it - was allegedly stolen from an airport in China.
