Richard Wilkins has a new flame

THE finance world doesn’t usually concern itself with the comings and goings of Richard ‘Dickie’ Wilkins but the Channel Nine star’s recent attachment to the estranged wife of one of its members raised eyebrows last week.

Wilkins has fallen head over heels for stunning 50-year-old Virginia Burmeister, who is separated from Morgan and Stanley investment banker Mark Burmeister.

Burmeister was a Bluebell dancer at Le Lido Paris following her graduation from Monte Sant Angelo school in the late 80s.

Her Twitter account reveals that on June 25 she was mingling with the Today Show cast and singer Seal on the show’s set: “I’m with Seal #9Today the voice.”

The chatty Burmeister has been talking to celebrities on Twitter since 2016. Last year she had advice for Shane Warne after he asked followers: “Thinking of growing my hair long again! Thoughts?” She enthused: “Looks good short X.”

She engaged with Wilkins on February 2 after spying him at an airport: “Nice seeing you in the chairman’s this morning… hope you had a good flight! X”

Confidential’s finance industry sources say the fit blonde and her “extremely wealthy” estranged husband have three school-aged children together.

Wilkins is a father of six.
