It comes after Lisa shared a string of snaps with James on her Instagram page for the first time.

In one, the pair looked completely smitten as they cosied up and smiled at the camera. In a second, James is seen planting a kiss on Lisa’s cheek.

Lisa first began dating James back in August – four months after her divorce from TV presenter Ant was finalised.

Lisa was photographed cuddling up to 37 year old James at a park cafe. The pair were seen laughing and joking as they took a break from walking Hurley, the beloved Labrador Lisa shares with ex-husband Ant.

An onlooker told The Sun Online at the time: "She and James both looked really happy, especially Lisa.

"They were very lovey-dovey — as you are in the early stages of romance.

"They were chatting intently, holding hands, and she was laughing a lot. They made no effort to disguise their feelings."

It is believed that Lisa first met James before lockdown started last year.

Lisa and Ant, 44, were married for 12 years before the I'm A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! host announced he was ending the marriage in January 2018.

Ant has since moved on with personal assistant Anne-Marie Corbett, with him previously calling her and her children his "greatest love".
