Redhead may be Kermit's new flame
A NEW piggy is in town and her name is Denise.
After Muppets star characters Kermit the Frog and Miss Piggy ended their relationship less than a month ago, both puppets have been given new love interests, according to People magazine.
"It appears the plush amphibian has already moved on," the magazine reported, saying that Kermit "has been spotted around town numerous times" with another pig, a pale redhead called Denise.
Fans have noted that Denise bears a resemblance to Game Of Thrones star Natalie Dormer, the Daily Mail reported.
Miss Piggy doesn't seem to have a long-time replacement for her former flame, but Hollywood star Liam Hemsworth recently shared a photo with her captioned: "Spent Friday with the most beautiful girl in the world."
Miss Piggy and Kermit had been an item for 40 years, with the pushy porcine diva typically lording it over the more reserved amphibian - but the exact nature of their relationship status had been dubious before they split.
News of the break-up and new flames comes as ABC promotes their series The Muppets, which premieres Sept 22.
