Emma Watson ’s romance with actor Johnny Simmons is on the rocks after he refused to follow her to England.
The 21-year-old Harry Potter starlet has been dating Johnny since they met on the set of forthcoming film The Perks Of Being A Wallflower in June.
The pair enjoyed a romantic break in New York together in September, and in the same month I revealed Emma had begged LA-based Johnny, 24, to come to England, where she has just enrolled at Oxford University.

‘Emma has been telling people that the relationship is complicated,’ says a source.
‘Johnny has been very distant with her and she’s worried that it’s because he’s overwhelmed by her fame. They’ve not seen each other in a while and they’ve barely spoken. She has invited him to come to Oxford, but he has not accepted the offer yet.
‘She doesn’t want things to be awkward when they reunite to promote the film, but she’s worried the relationship is over before it even began.’
Emma plans to spend a year studying English at Oxford before completing her degree at America’s Brown University.

Girl about town and TV presenter Noelle Reno, 28, is adding a string to her bow. The girlfriend of entrepreneur Scot Young will design a handbag for Aspinal of London. ‘We are having conversations. Noelle has fantastic style.
She is classic but interesting, which would work perfectly for Aspinal,’ Mariya Dykalo Burton, Head of Design at the brand, told me at the Carole Tanenbaum lunch at Baglioni’s in London this week. Noelle has previously collaborated with designer Zandra Rhodes.
