Inside David Walliams’ dating life as ex says she was ‘plagued’ by his fame
David Walliams has gained a bit of a reputation for dating top models following his divorce in 2015.
The Britain's Got Talent star, 50, been pretty secretive about his love life since his divorce from Lara Stone, 38, and these days he talks more about fatherhood, his dogs – Bert and Ernie – and the children’s books he writes than potential partners.
Nevertheless, speculation about the women he dates is always on the cards, especially when he’s spotted out and about in company, and some say he has recently been taking advantage of the popular celebrity dating app Raya.

The last confirmed sighting of David on a date was in April when the Britain’s Got Talent star stepped out for a dog walk and a pub lunch with model Rosie Ashley in London’s Primrose Hill.
Casually dressed, the pair seemed at ease in each other’s company and a source told the Daily Mail they had been dating “for a while”.
It’s fair to say that for any future partner of David’s, coping with the huge attention his fame attracts isn’t for the faint hearted. Ex-wife Lara recently described dealing with the attention fame brings as “terrifying”.
The Dutch supermodel, and mother of David’s son Alfred, was well accustomed to being in the spotlight but said the level she had to face when they were dating, as well as during their six-year marriage, was on another level.
She told Dutch Vogue about one occasion when she was followed by paparazzi: "I'd been at his house and was walking back to the Tube and this car was driving next to me and they were taking pictures the whole time.
"It was just so bewildering and terrifying."
The couple divorced in 2015 and Lisa remarried in 2021. Before David’s marriage and in the seven years since the split, rumours of romance have involved a string of high profile women.
Last year, there was speculation that he was back with former Page 3 supermodel turned actress Keeley Hazell, 35, who had returned from the US where she was appearing in the TV series Ted Lasso.
The pair used to date back in the early 2000s, when David shot to fame appearing on Little Britain with Matt Lucas. They were rumoured to be seeing each other again romantically after being pictured together at Ant McPartlin’s wedding to Anne-Marie Corbett in August 2021, but neither David nor Keeley confirmed or denied a relationship.
David is also rumoured to have dated Spice Girl Geri Halliwell, Natalie Imbruglia, model Abi Titmuss and actress Patsy Kensit, Ashley James and Norwegian model Sylvia Flote.
He was also romantically linked to Patsy Kensit in 2004 – however, Patsy went on to say in her book she only ever dated the men she went on to marry.
A mystery woman who broke David’s heart, who he referred to only as Miss X, was revealed in 2006 to be TV presenter Lisa Snowden, host of Britain’s Next Top Model.
