Ex Hull City player's new romance after split from Alexandra Burke

Former Hull City defender Angus MacDonald appears to be hitting it off with a Love Island star.

The Rotheram United player look besotted whilst on a night out in London with Rachel Fenton recently.

MacDonald, 28, faced a difficult time last year when he was shockingly diagnosed with bowel cancer. But he now looks to be getting back to his old self and enjoying going out again.

He and Rachel were seen laughing and smiling, before kissing one and other.

NHS nurse Rachel shot to fame after appearing on the 2016 series of the ITV show and fell for Rykard Jenkins.

It comes just a month after she was spotted on a date with Towie’s James Lock.

And it is the first time Angus has been spotted moving on since his long term relationship with Alexandra Burke.

Brave Angus was told he had bowel cancer last summer and admitted he thought he could die.

But he got the all clear in November after two operations – first to remove his bowel and fit a colostomy bag and another to replace the bowel.

He was dating X Factor star Alexandra, 32, at the time and has since revealed she was a huge support.

He told The Sun: “I hadn’t been with Alex long and, I know it sounds stupid, but I was worried it may affect our relationship. We’d only just passed the dating stage.

“I tried to act as normal as I could but she knew something wasn’t right.”

He said Alex was “devastated” by the news.

Angus was diagnosed with a blood clot in his leg in September 2018, which saw him pull out of playing football for nine months, before the cancer shock was confirmed in August.

Angus is now a patron for Bowel Cancer UK, offering ongoing support to raise awareness of the illness.

He was given the all clear in December of last year, but the pair broke things off in March 2021.

A source confirmed they went their separate ways after becoming too busy with their individual careers.

The singer deleted all trace of her ex from her Instagram account as they called it quits after a difficult first year together.

Alexandra has not been spotted out with a new beau, but will there be a date two for Angus and Rachel?
