It's good to see that 26-year-old Rob's very public heartbreak this summer hasn't dwindled his female following.

He moved his belongings out of the home he shared with Kristen, 22, after photos emerged of her in a passionate embrace with Snow White And The Huntsman director Rupert Sanders, 41.

Kristen said in a statement at the time: "I'm deeply sorry for the hurt and embarrassment I've caused to those close to me and everyone this has affected.

"This momentary indiscretion has jeopardised the most important thing in my life, the person I love and respect the most, Rob. I love him, I love him, I'm so sorry."

Rob is now said to have forgiven Kristen and taken her back on a "trial basis" - and no doubt she'll be keen to ensure she keeps her sexy man this time.
