David Gandy is already done with Samantha Barks, says he’s ‘single at the moment’

Back in June, I was one of the last people to know that my love, male model David Gandy, had started up a romance with Les Miserables actress Samantha Barks. They made a somewhat splashy debut at some fashion event, and it was said that David was all over her. Samantha is 22 years old, David is 33 (although he looks 40-something). Of course I didn’t think it would last, but I did think that they would probably manage to stick with it throughout the summer. Not so much. David announced that they broke up more than a week ago!

David Gandy’s romance with Samantha Barks has fizzled out as quickly as it flared up.

In May I saw the pair, right, canoodling on the John Walker & Sons Voyager yacht in Monaco.
But despite clinging to her in front of every camera around for more than two months, David couldn’t have been more off-hand about the stunning Les Misérables actress when I caught up with him last week.

‘I am single at the moment,’ the Dolce & Gabbana model, 33, revealed at the Johnnie Walker Blue Label party at London Bridge.

‘This summer I am going to LA and then New York. Samantha’s gone to LA now and if I see her in LA then I see her in LA .  .  . I am not going to go out of my way to see her, but if I bump into her, I bump into her.’

Oh dear. Another one bites the dust .  .  .

Huh, it sounds like she might have dumped him just before she left for LA? While David doesn’t seem like the settling-down kind of bloke right now, he strikes me as something of a serial monogamist. He managed to date Mollie King for more than a year, then he dated model Sarah Anne Macklin for about six months or so, and there were rumors about David and Lily Cole too. I really am surprised that he and Samantha couldn’t even make it two whole months. What’s the problem? Is it him? Is he a freak in bed? Please say yes. Anyway, I’m sure David will find someone new. Probably some model/actress. I hope it’s somebody good.

    Gosh, he goes through them like toilet paper.

  2. blue marie says:

    he’s attractive til he starts talking..But, if I’m being honest, I wouldn’t kick him out of bed.

  3. LAK says:

    gosh….his reply to questions asked feels a tad angry…was someone dumped??

  4. Badirene says:

    He’s 33? Ok, if you say so Gandy I believe you (insert side eye gif here)

  5. spiderkitty says:

    That sounds cold. Ouch.

  6. Joiq says:

    David seems like a relationship type of guy. Dare I say even Dicaprio when he has a steady gal.

  7. jen says:

    He is probably some sort of egotistical jerkoff in real life. You can tell just by looking at him.

    • Cel says:


      He did an interview a while back, stating he was a perfectionist and past girlfriends had found that difficult to deal with. Sounds to me like nothing/no-one is good enough for his high standards.

    • Denise says:

      He was very condescending toward certain Brit designers recently on Alan Carr, and then I saw a video where he was being interviewed for an indy magazine and he was unbearably pretentious. I need my hotties to be nice. I have now lost my girl boner for him.

    “Is he a freak in the bed? Please say yes.”. LMAO!!

  9. Carolyn says:

    I get a real skeezy vibe from him. Nice to look at, that’s all.

  10. Leah says:

    It actually sounds like she dumped him. He is so hot though but i do think he is probably not that great company.

  11. Shelley says:

    He was way too hot for her. He belongs with me

  12. duchessofhazard says:

    He looks like Ultimates Tony Stark come to life. Yes, please.

  13. truthful says:

    HER LOSS!!

    and he could give a rat’s butt about it too!! woooohooooo!!

    if I could I would visit NYC to try to catch a glimpse of him and give him a little cleavage and body glitter love.

    BUT I’m getting married at the end of the year to my very stable fiancee, plus I can’t afford to swill and swig a lot of booze with him, cause I have to fit into my dress.

    I bet a few nights w/him and I’d be stalking him, I’ve always wanted that kind of passion–LOL!!

    I’ll settle for knowing he is single, my Monday is a lil happier w/these pics.

    Men like David Gandy and Henry Cavill have a million options, so there. They do not need to settle down. But interestingly enough, they -as budding celebs- seem to enjoy and get encouraged to utilize their romances with C-list celebrities to push their images in the tabloid media to gain some exposure. That is a little disconcerting.

    Be that as it may, if there are women out there who assume these men spend their nights alone in their beds and wait for the ‘right girl’, they would be seriously mistaken. Women practically throw themselves at them – and why shouldn’t they sleep around as much as they can as long as no one gets pregnant at the end? And they do sleep around: why not? Even hideous-looking Hollywood actors like Jonah Hill and Kevin Connolly hook up with random one-night girls who will bed them just because they are famous.

    This was a mismatch made in heaven!! Gandy definitely is looking older that 33 and Barks looks like a child-like bobble head. Both are talented in their respective fields and why shouldn’t they be allowed to fool around? From the forced stories at the Daily Mail and the few photos of them at two events together, I don’t know of these two were any more than ‘hooking up.’ When Gandy is with a real girlfriend he is not ashamed to be photographed happy w/them. Not the case with Ms Barks. Seemed forced and off from the get go….
