So, who is Anna Archer’s new boyfriend that she’s soft launched on TikTok?

Gutted it’s not me

So fitness enthusiasts and TikTok addicts alike may have noticed that Gymshark athlete Anna Archer has been less than subtle at hinting at her new relationship online. She’s posted TikToks dancing with her secret man where all we get is a glimpse of an arm or a mere reflection of him in her oven and she’s even teased of her “situationship” on her YouTube account. But who is the mystery man? People are starting to put theories together of who he could be based on a few clues.

So, who actually is the mysterious boyfriend of Anna Archer?

In a TikTok posted by Anna at the start of this year, she filmed herself dancing and miming to The Vamps, but the arm which suddenly appears for no other reason than to spin her around has been micro analysed by many of her followers. Despite one commenter writing “We all know who it is…”, opinions on who the rogue arm belongs to are divided among commenters on the TikTok.

Some people believe they cracked the code and think it’s without a doubt James Beardwell, a fitness influencer and fellow Gymshark athlete who Anna frequently spends time with. They’ve spent loads of time together recently and she’s also featured on his Instagram page where they uploaded a cheesy selfie together. Some fans have been quick to suggest it could be him, writing “I think it’s James bc he wears a bracelet like that.”, while another commenter agreed and left “That is James’ bracelet.” I mean that’s a pretty big clue, right?

Others aren’t so sure, as there’s enough reasonable doubt to suggest that it could be Olly Bowman, another of Anna’s friends who is also into fitness. Some of Anna’s followers suspect it could be him due to their personalities being “the exact same” and we already know Anna and him get on really well and have spent a lot of time together in the past. Like, that video of them breakdancing at an event together is too good.

But with a late entry, Anna’s second TikTok posted just a couple days later threw a bit of a spanner in the works for those theorising it could be James.

Smiling and miming along to another song, this time a remix of Hot N Cold (odd choice), Anna is pulled out of frame by a topless man, who we can only see a reflection of in the fridge behind her.

Erm, so who is it? Those of us who have way too much time on our hands think that it also could be Ollie Moore, with one comment suggesting his name getting almost 1,500 likes. Ollie Moore is – you guessed it – a fitness influencer and online coach, so clearly he’s Anna’s type.

Ollie actually seems like a good suggestion when you compare him to the reflection in Anna’s fridge and he’s even nicknamed himself and Anna as “partners” before in an Instagram post – but someone has already shot that theory down because Ollie doesn’t wear a bracelet and apparently his watch is different. You guys have to much time on your hands, seriously.

Whoever it is, Anna’s soft launch era isn’t over yet and I reckon she’s got a few more teases up her sleeve until we find out who it is.
