Tom Hiddleston’s ‘Mystery Blonde’ Is Actually Famous Historian Dr. Suzannah Lipscomb, and she's not 'his'

 Everyone knows that when a male celebrity leaves a venue alongside a woman, she must be identified by her hair colour and preferably be a “mystery”.

So when Night Manager star Tom Hiddleston was seen exiting a London restaurant at the same time as one, the Sun was quick to label her his “mystery blonde...”

Last night @twhiddleston left the same venue as me. Paps outside; I tried to block their view: thereby being in his way when he came to exit

This “mystery” woman is in fact historian Dr Suzannah Lipscomb.

Lipscomb has written a number of books on Tudor England, as well as presenting history programmes on the BBC and Channel 5.

And no she is not “Hiddleston’s” either.

She explained on Twitter before the story was even published that she was simply leaving the Ivy Club in central London at the same time.

Delightful as it is to have been pictured with @twhiddleston, I am embarrassed to have given The Sun a bogus story.
