London: Oscar winning actress Kate Winslet has reportedly rekindled her romance with model Louis Dowler. The couple, who dated for four months last year, called it quits after Winslet, 35, announced her decision to be alone.

But relatives of Dowler, 35, have now confirmed that the pair is back together, after they spent a romantic holiday meeting his family in Cornwall this week, reports said.

"They are on holiday down here. He brought Kate round on Saturday and it is the first time I have met her. We went for a pub lunch. She is a very attractive girl. She was polite and very friendly. They didn't talk to me much about their personal life but they seemed very much together," said Dowler's grandfather Jack Pearce.

Dowler's sister Natasha, who works in Specsavers in the port town, added, "They were only on holiday down here for a short while. He brought her down to meet me for lunch last Wednesday and she was lovely."

The couple met at a party last summer, soon after Winslet split from her film director husband Sam Mendes, who is the father to their seven-year-old son Joe.

The 'Titanic' star was previously married to Jim Threapleton. The former couple have a 10-year-old daughter, Mia.
