Sam Heughan has been snapped out and about in London holding hands with a gorgeous mystery brunette - and it's not his on-screen wife Caitriona Balfe.

The Scots Outlander star was spotted dressed in dark clothing and wearing sunglasses as he walked alongside the unknown woman, who was wearing a black woollen mini-dress with a long leather coat.

The 44-year-old actor, who hails from the small village of Balmaclellan in Dumfries and Galloway, was striding the streets in a pair of black trainers while his fashionable companion wore her own pair in white.

The images were published by US celebrity titles including Just Jared and People magazine.

Heughan and the mystery lady were walking on Dean Street in Soho passing the trendy outside restaurants of Doppo and Burger & Lobster when they were spotted.

The Outlander star's most recent love interest was Australian model Monika Clarke back in 2022 but the Scot later pronounced himself as single the following year, the Scottish Daily Express reports.

Clarke later went on to date baseball player Matt Harvey but is said to also be single again – although she is not thought to be the unidentified woman in the pictures.

Heughan has also previously had romantic relationships with blonde Irish actress Amy Shiels as well as blonde American actress Mackenzie Mauzy.

According to People mag, his representatives did not respond to a request for a comment.

Back in May 2023, the Scot revealed he is a big softie as he said is "romantic at heart".

Speaking of his attempts at finding love so far, he said: "I've done all of the gift-giving and turning up when least expected, but, so far, I'm still looking."
