Gossip Girl star Chace Crawford found romance amongst the volcano travel chaos - he was spotted enjoying a date while he was stranded in London following the Icelandic eruption, according to reports.
The actor jetted into London early last week (beg19Apr10) to promote his new movie Twelve, but found himself stuck in Britain after flights across northern Europe were grounded due to the heavy cloud of ash floating in the skies above.
And Crawford is said to have used the opportunity to spend time with a British actress, named only as Tessa.
The 24 year old was spotted enjoying an evening out with the blonde beauty, and he was photographed leaving a London night spot with his arm around her waist.
A source tells New York Post gossip column Page Six, "Chace was trapped in London, so he spent his time with Tessa. They were introduced by a friend and really hit it off. He had to return to the U.S. for work, but he hopes he'll see her again."
