The Bachelor NZ 2017 star Zac Franich has moved on after his split with Viarni Bright and is now reportedly with fellow TV personality Erin Simpson.

Photos of the couple arm-in-arm and passionately kissing have been published by Woman's Day, along with some loved-up quotes.

Simpson, 35, gushes about being in the "honeymoon phase" with her new man, although Woman's Day only cites a "source close to the star pair" as confirming that man is 29-year-old Franich.

Three photos have been posted on the Now To Love website, with Simpson in a blue and white striped dress and Franich in a white T-shirt and light pink shorts. He also wears a maroon cap in each photo - backwards in two, forwards in the one in which they're kissing.

She has a hand on his inner thigh in one of the pics, while smiling lovingly at his face.

"I really value him and feel so lucky we found each other," says Simpson.

Franich and Bright announced their break-up in November, 2017, after six months together.

"We've had plenty of laughs and have shared some pretty special memories together in that time. However, in life, some things just aren't meant to be," Franich wrote on Instagram.
