Rachel Hunter is dating one of London's most eligible bachelors - who is more wealthy than estranged husband Rod Stewart and ex-boyfriend ROBBIE WILLIAMS combined.

The ULTIMO model, 34, has been spotted in the arms of music talent agency boss and club promoter ANTHONY DE ROTHSCHILD, 26 - the heir to a $540 million (GBP300 million) banking fortune.

Stewart and Williams' are worth an estimated $108 million (GBP60 million) and $122.40 million (GBP68 million) respectively.

Hunter - who replaced Stewart's girlfriend Penny Lancaster as the new face of lingerie giants ULTIMO earlier this year (04) - was seen canoodling with De Rothschild at his club Eve in London last week (ends26MAR04).

A source tells British tabloid newspaper the DAILY MIRROR, "They were all over each other.

"He couldn't believe his luck. There was lots of kissing and giggling.

"He's a hilarious guy and really good fun - as well as being one of London's most eligible bachelors.

"Although she does come over here quite a bit so who knows where it could lead?"
