Is Luke Newton Single?

As of 2024, all signs point toward Luke Newton being single.

The actor has not been papped on any dates in recent months and his social media is void of signs of a girlfriend. Plus, he was reportedly spotted on A-list-only dating app Raya last year, so he is evidently looking, it seems.

Luke Newton Age

The Bridgerton star was born on February 5, 1993 making him 31-years-old.

Luke Newton Height

Newton would pass the checklist of many modern Tinder users because he is reportedly a solid 6 feet tall. This makes him taller than both Page and Bailey, so while he may not have a Lord or Duke title to his name, he does have that.
