In photos exclusively obtained by Woman's Day, the brunette beauty has been snapped cosying up to a handsome gentleman on a seaside getaway at Depot Beach in NSW.
"They were all over each other," says an onlooker, who reveals the pair seemed to be on a date.
"They were giggling and at one stage he even gave her a piggyback ride – it was rather romantic," adds the insider.
Earlier this month, Emma responded after fans compared her to last season's "stage five clinger" Cass Wood during an interview with OK!
"Cass is a beautiful girl, but I'm nothing like her," insisted Emma.
"I definitely don't want to come across as Cass whatsoever."
