Millionaire magician David Copperfield shows off the new woman in his life, after his high profile romance with Claudia Schiffer many years ago.
The illusionist has just become engaged to French model and designer Chloe Gosselin, 28, whom he has known for six years.
In an interview with Hello! magazine he says he has well and truly moved on from Schiffer, the supermodel he dated for six years who went on to marry film director and producer Matthew Vaughn.
He said: "Oh, that was a long time ago. Now I'm engaged and in a committed relationship with Chloe in my mind and my heart."
Copperfield and his new love were interviewed at his Caribbean hideaway, Copperfield Bay - an archipelago of 11 islands, one of which was the venue for Penelope Cruz and Javier Bardem's nuptials in July 2010.
The showman admits to being a perfectionist - spending "an average of five years" in putting together his shows and the eye for detail is repeated in his tropical home.
"Because of my work I have the privilege of living in extraordinary places around the world and I wanted to recreate the details of those experiences here - from the water pressure in the shower to the thread count in the towels," he said.
Gosselin is full of praise for her fiance, saying: "I'm so lucky to have found David. There are very few people in the world like him. He's spent more than 30 years at the top of his profession. He's achieved some extraordinary things."
