Are Idris Elba and Naiyana Garth back together?

Los Angeles - Idris Elba is back together with his long-term girlfriend.

The Luther star sparked rumours he'd called time on his three-year relationship with Naiyana Garth, with whom he has 23-month-old son Winston, in February but the loved-up couple appeared to pour cold water on any split speculation at the British Academy Television Awards (BAFTA TV) at the Royal Festival Hall in London on Sunday night.

The pair were all smiles as they strutted down the red carpet hand-in-hand, before putting on an affectionate display as they proudly posed for photographs ahead of the event.

The 43-year-old star placed a protective arm around the brunette beauty, 28, as they gazed into each other's eyes and fell into a fit of giggles in front of adoring fans, in what is believed to be their first public event together this year.

The couple first sparked speculation they had ended their romance when Idris attended the British Film Awards in February on his own and failed to mention his lover in his acceptance speech when he scooped the Best Actor accolade for the war-based film Beasts of No Nation.

A source said at the time: "It ended very recently and it's too soon for her to talk about it. They've kept it very quiet so she's surprised people know already.

"It's very sad that this has happened while Idris is experiencing the highest points of his professional career and they can't celebrate it with each other."
