Washington: If reports are to be believed then veteran actress Dame Judi Dench is dating British conservationist David Mills, 10 years after the tragic death of her husband.

The speculation started after Dench was seen on the arm of Mills, reports a website.

The duo was pictured dancing at a party last month and they were spotted again when they dined together near her Surrey, England, home last weekend.

According to a daily, the actress was also photographed walking arm-in-arm with Mills during a countryside walk.

Dench was left shattered in 2001 when her partner of 30 years, Michael Williams, passed away following a battle with lung cancer.
