The 29-year-old is currently in Paris, but said she extended her holiday so she can return to Italy next week to spend more time with the the mystery man.

“There’s a little something that’s happened while I’ve been in Europe, and it’s quite nice. And it comes in the form of a man that we met on the island of Capri,” Dom said on her and Ella Ding’s Sit With Us podcast.

Dom explained that the man, who she didn’t name, only speaks a little English so they used a translator app to communicate.

“He doesn’t really speak English and I don’t really speak that much Italian, so the language barrier is actually hilarious,” she said.

“But there’s something about it that just works. When we video [chat], we communicate just through look. It’s the weirdest thing, I don’t even know how to explain it.”

Dom said she met up with the man in Naples, where they enjoyed a romantic date before she headed to Florence. 

“We sat in this little café at the train station and my mum was literally just sitting with us helping to translate,” she said.

“We talked about everything, but the way we just looked at each other, I feel like we communicated through that.

“We didn’t kiss, he just gave me a hug. Then he messaged me when I was on the train after we’d left and he said, ‘I really wanted to kiss you but your mum was there’, which was really cute.”

After talking on social media, the man travelled to Florence so he could visit Dom.

“It’s so weird and new to me because I’ve never had a man do anything nice like that,” she said.

“It was the best day ever. He got in early, I went to meet him at nine o’clock, and then we went and had breakfast and we walked around and literally my phone the entire day was like the translator when we couldn’t speak.

“He is very thoughtful and romantic, which I don’t know if that’s weird to say because we’ve literally only met a few times and gone on a few dates… He’s done more in two dates than a lot of men that I’ve dated recently.”
