New Idea can reveal that the former Bondi Vet is keen to spend more time with newly single radio star Jackie O Henderson when he returns to Australia next month.
“Dr Chris is very much Jac’s type,” reveals a radio insider. According to our source, Dr Chris has appeared on The Kyle And Jackie O radio show numerous times over the years, and that he and Jackie always have “chemistry” whenever he is in the studio.
They also say that Jackie, who last year split from her husband of 15 years, Lee, is finally ready to get back on the dating scene.
“Up until now, Jac’s been hesitant because of all the photographers following her around, and keeping her privacy,” spills our source.
But after spending some time with her best friend and former Bachelorette star Sophie Monk over the holidays, Jackie is said to be open to the idea of meeting someone again.
“Soph is the queen of heartbreak,” spills a friend. “She was a shoulder to lean on for Jac when she decided to go public with her split but now she is 100 per cent encouraging Jac to get back out there.”
Meanwhile, our insider claims Chris, 40, is “absolutely” Jackie’s type. “Jac likes the nice boys like Dr Chris,” they say.
“And unlike Lee, Chris understands how difficult the business is as he too has been dragged through public scrutiny.
“And it’s not like they don’t know each other. Dr Chris is often on the show but hasn’t been on so far this year.”
News of Chris and Jackie O’s possible romance comes as the hunky vet’s former flame Liv Phyland continues to tag him in her social media posts.
In fact, Liv took to Instagram last week to share an emotional post after the breakup. “I have sleepless nights where my mind is in overdrive,” she wrote in a lengthy post. “I’ve had many times where my family and friends have had to pick me up when I’m in a bed of tears.”
Adding further fuel to the fire, it seems Chris’ family is keen to see him move on with the likes of someone like Jackie, with brother Tim only following Chris’ ex-girlfriend Kendall Bora on Instagram and not Liv.
“Chris and his family are very private people so the fact that Tim doesn’t follow Liv on social media but does follow Kendall is a clear indication they had a good relationship with her.”
Last year, Dr Chris revealed to WHO that he couldn’t wait to start a family of his own.
When asked if he wants kids, he said: “Absolutely.”
Meanwhile, Jackie, 44, has also previously admitted she would love to give her daughter Kitty, 8, a sibling one day. And if predictions from celeb psychics are anything to go by, it seems a baby may soon be on the way.
“I see a little baby boy running around with you and I know you don’t have one,” clairvoyant Philippa Lee told her during a radio segment in 2016, while just last week on the show psychic Georgina Walker said, “There is that song, Beyonce’s ‘put a ring on it’ and you will remarry.”
