David Walliams trying to woo Ashley James
David Walliams is trying to woo Ashley James.
The comedian is reportedly pulling out all the stops to seduce the former 'Made In Chelsea' star - who left the show in 2013 - after being granted a divorce from his wife of five years Lara Stone last month.
A source said: "It's a slow-burner but David has made his feelings clear. He recently sent her a bunch of white roses and a card signed 'DW'."
The 44-year-old TV star split from model Lara, with whom he has two-year-old son Alfred, back in March citing her "unreasonable behaviour" for the decision.
But he is now believed to have hit it off with Ashley - who has previously dated former 'Xtra Factor' presenter Matt Richardson and bisexual reality star Ollie Locke - after being introduced by mutual friends earlier this year.
And they recently partied together at a star-studded Halloween bash thrown by Jonathan Ross.
The 27-year-old blonde beauty - who bares a noticeable resemblance to David's ex - is 16 years younger than the 'Britain's Got Talent' judge but they are said to be "very flirty" with each other.
The source told the Sunday Mirror newspaper: "They hang out in a group with other people and she has been to his house with other friends.
"They are both very flirty and it's clear there's a huge attraction there but David is quite cautious about entering into another relationship."
