NEW couple alert -- prodigal son Sean Maguire is back in town and was spotted having an intimate dinner with Tamara Mellon last night. The former EastEnders star, who left these shores with his head bowed after a miserable stab at becoming a pop star, has been busy carving a successful acting career for himself in the US. Hes in London to plug his latest show, and raised a few eyebrows last night when he took Jimmy Choo boss Tamara, 41, to dinner at Scotts restaurant in Mayfair. Not the most discreet venue for a date, youll be wise to notice. They were spotted deep in conversation as they shared an outside table so Sean, 33, could smoke. Tamara has been single since splitting from Hollywood hunk Christian Slater in March. She must have a thing for actors. JOHNNY DEPP, pictured, about his wife Vanessa Paradis at the premiere of his new movie Public Enemies in Leicester Square last night: I saw Vanessa in a crowded room and I knew in that instant it was over. Now we have two children. It was love at first sight. When people say that it doesnt exist, its not true. Weveheard Mariahcangetbristly SOMEBODY ought to tell the usually image-conscious Mariah Carey that she needs to wax her moustache... and perhaps her goatee as well. The 39-year-old singer dressed up as a hotel porter and then a hoodie for a new music video in New York yesterday, and were a little shocked at how well she pulled the whole look off. Perhaps she should consider it a full-time disguise if she wants to get around incognito.

See FORGIVE the height jibe, but being short has made Verne Troyer a very rich man indeed. The Austin Powers star went out last night to watch a tribute screening of Terry Gilliams Time Bandits at The Electric Cinema in Portobello Road. The oddball fantasy flick must have put Troyer in the right mood, as he was later spotted trying to chat up a couple of ladies in the street.
