Is Barney Walsh in a relationship?
It’s not clear whether Barney Walsh is currently single or not. The 23-year-old presenter and actor appears to keep his love life out of the spotlight and has never publicly revealed whether he’s dating anyone.
Barney and rumoured girlfriend Stephanie
Barney can often be seen on his Instagram page surrounded by beautiful models thanks to his presenting role for the Miss World competitions. He was previously linked to Stephanie Del Valle Diaz, a Puerto Rican musician and model who won the competition in 2016. It is thought that Barney and Stephanie crossed paths while taking part in charity events as part of the Miss World Beauty With A Purpose initiative.
Barney has shared several snaps of the model to his Instagram page, including one of the two lounging by a pool with cocktails in hand. Another shows the pair enjoying a day out ziplining.

In 2019 the stunning couple stepped out onto the red carpet at the BAFTA TV Awards together looking very happy and were pictured alongside Barney’s parents Bradley Walsh and Donna Derby. The two haven’t been pictured together since so it’s not clear whether they are still together.
However, the TV star does appear to have recently welcomed someone special into this life – a beautiful new puppy named Lulu! Sharing a snap of himself cuddling the beautiful white pooch with his Instagram followers, Barney wrote: “Sorry I haven’t been around much everyone… I’ve been busy in lockdown training this little ray of sunshine! Welcome to the family Lulu!! Take care and stay safe guys.”
