New love: Sophie has reportedly dated the hunk for six months but the post was the first time they have gone public with their relationship.
The couple met in February while they were volunteering in Uganda for a charity which helps children.
Diags split with Fran back in 2017 when they had an acrimonious split after she initially joined TOWIE as his housemate.
It comes after Fran made a return to the show this week and nearly suffered a wardrobe malfunction.
The star made a triumphant − and eye-catching − return as she nearly revealed her ample assets.

Sporting a new look, the 29-year-old reality star commanded attention in a deeply plunging white ruched minidress, which barely scraped her thighs.
Standing tall in a pair of white strappy heels, the brunette beauty covered up with a berry red bomber jacket, which did little to conceal her over-spilling bosom.
Fran also looked different to her old days on TOWIE, wearing her chestnut locks in long sleek waves, which she highlighted with a rich palette of makeup.
Accessorising with chunky jewellery and a pair of oversized hoop earrings, Fran looked at home as she joined co-stars Yazmin Oukello, James Lock, Clelia Theodorou, and Nicole Bass.

In 2018, shortly after making her exit from TOWIE, Fran was spotted suffering wardrobe malfunctions at two different London parties in as many months.
That same year, Fran unveiled her newly slimmed physique on Instagram while revealing she has lost a huge 3.5 stone.
The reality star shared her impressive transformation with before and after photos, explaining her battle with her own body insecurities to her followers.
Proud with the change in her figure, Fran explained that she had suffered from ‘awful anxiety’ and found herself in a ‘really bad place’ a few months beforehand, but persevered through her worries to overhaul her image.
Despite feeling ‘anxious’ in the gym and thinking that she would be ‘laughed’ at by going, the beauty insisted that her determination to shape up had motivated her to look past her fears and dedicate herself to her training regime.

She penned: ‘Before anyone starts commenting anything please read what I have to say here before you judge… so I was in a really bad place a few months back, got awful anxiety even when I went to the gym I was so anxious if people would look and laugh.
‘But I got through it and thought, no this is my journey, I’m here for me so Im not going to worry about anyone else but myself and look at the out come, 3 and a half stone lighter now.’
Prematurely addressing any criticism or claims that she has had work done to help her weight loss, Fran then defiantly added: ‘Before anyone says I’ve edited it or that’s not me or I’ve had lipo suction. I haven’t.
‘I’ve done this journey for younger girls to follow my tips and do it the right way. I will be uploading tips very soon on how to loose weight. If anyone says I had lipo coz of the bruise on the side of my hip I got drunk Friday and walked in to a car.’

She had starred on The Only Way Is Essex for seven series and was known for her relationship with Diags. They had dated for three years, before confirming their split in September 2017.
Sources claimed at the time that Fran ‘felt lost’ in the wake of their break up and was left upset after being sent messages alleging Diags had brought girls back to the apartment she had shared with him.
Insiders revealed: ‘They don’t talk at all now that they’ve split… she is utterly heartbroken it’s come from him and can’t stop crying. She never had any idea he was ‘that’ guy. They were best friends and best friends don’t do that to each other.’
