Denise and Jimmy met through All Saints star Shaznay Lewis, with the insider revealing they have been ‘on a few dates.’

‘It’s early days but everything is going really well and Denise is happy,’ reveals the source. 

Denise revealed she had split from Eddie in a New Year’s Instagram post, after initially discovering his infidelities in November 2021.

She caught Eddie flirting sexually with three women and has described his behaviour as ‘disrespectful and devastatingly hurtful’.

Denise claimed that she found pictures and Instagram messages on Eddie’s iPad, detailing the ordeal in her autobiography, A Bit Of Me: From Basildon To Broadway And Back. 

Denise wrote: ‘There were also Instagram messages alluding to phone sex with a third woman. I quickly found the woman’s profile by her screen name, only to discover I’d previously blocked her on my Instagram account – which struck me as odd.’ 

She continued: ‘This was a woman I didn’t know, who’d clearly had an online connection with my boyfriend. Why would I have blocked her from my Instagram account. Straight away, I unblocked her and sent her a message saying how she knew Eddie.’

She added: ‘She suggested that Eddie had probably gone into my phone and blocked her so she couldn’t message me.   

‘She has apparently spoken to Eddie over FaceTime and text for a long period – often from our home and sometimes from my flat in Hampstead, which she seemed to think was his.

‘They’d never met in person, but she said the conversations had become sexual in nature reasonably quickly – some of the stuff I found on the phone seemed to support that.

‘However she was upset with Eddie because he’d apparently ghosted her.’ 

The TV star recently opened up about the gut-wrenching moment she told her 12-year-old daughter Betsy about the split.

Denise, who co-parents Betsy with ex-husband Lee Mead, said sharing the news with her daughter was the ‘worst part’ about the break-up.

‘It tore me apart watching her cry while I tried to make her understand,’ Denise recalled to OK! magazine

Taking 48-year-old Eddie back was not an option for the TOWIE narrator, as she went on to explain. 

‘I’ve got too much self respect and I just can’t live that that. I felt like, in a few selfish moments, he’d ruined it. I couldn’t imagine it ever feeling the same,’ she admitted.

Eddie moved out of Denise’s home following their shock split and is now thought to be staying with friends. 

Meanwhile Denise’s close friend Duncan James, of boyband Blue, has replaced Eddie on the current series of Celebrity Gogglebox, taking his place on the sofa besides Denise for the popular Channel 4 show.
