Miss Universe winner Pia Wurtzbach is dating Instagram fame, Dr. Mike. Rumours that the 26-year-old Filipino-German beauty queen and Mike, who is dubbed as the hottest doctor on Instagram, are dating started after he posted an image with her on Instagram. 

He wrote: "She says she wanted to be a doctor until she realized she's deathly afraid of the sight of blood , so she decided to win #MissUniverse instead #touché #welldone #stoneheartday@piawurtzbach"

The Russian-born doctor, whose real name is Mikhail Varshavski, also confirmed their relationship. Mike, who was named the "sexiest doctor alive" by People Magazine in 2015 told Wonderwall: "I am dating Pia. It's a fairly new relationship but I'm really excited to see where it can go!"

Meanwhile, this year's Miss Universe event saw a high volatge drama when host Steve Harvey made a major slip at the ceremony held at Planet Hollywood Resort in Las Vegas. The comedian announced Miss Colombia Ariadna Gutierrez as the winner of the pageant.

Gutierrez was wearing the crown when Harvey returned to apologise, as the real winner was Wurtzbach. He said: "I will take responsibility. It was my mistake ... Please don't hold it against the ladies."

Following that, Miss Universe 2014 Paulina Vega took the crown from Gutierrez and placed it on Wurtzbach's head instead. Click here to take a look at the video.
