Larry Lamb has split with his partner-of-20 years Clare Burt and is now dating a French lady
Larry Lamb has split from his long-term partner.
The 69-year-old star has separated with his girlfriend Clare Burt, whom he was with for 20 years, but he's wasted no time finding another lover as he was met by his "lovely new lady" Marie Victorine when he left the 'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here!' jungle.
Although the former 'Gavin & Stacey' star hasn't announced the news himself, his arch-enemy Martin Roberts - who he locked horns with on numerous occasions while they were on the reality TV star - had no qualms discussing Larry's love life on live TV.
While appearing on 'This Morning' on Thursday (08.12.16), Martin said: "By the time it was our final morning (in Australia), having breakfast with Kirsty (Martin's wife) and the kids and who should walk up but Larry and his lovely new lady Marie."
Viewers saw the former 'EastEnders' star wrap his arms around Marie - who is French - when he walked to the end of the bridge once his stint ended in camp last week.
However, their lovely embrace didn't raise eyebrows at the time as bosses of the creepy-crawly show had referred to Marie as Larry's "friend" when she met him.
While being driven to meet the actor after his release, Marie told the cameras: "I am very proud of Larry. He has been busy looking after everybody, which I must say he does always. I will give him a big hug. He deserves it - more than one!"
News that Larry has got a new partner will no doubt come as a huge shock to most, as him and Clare stepped out together at a charity event in Hereford in October.
Larry, who is fluent in French, and the former 'The Bill' actress - who have been together since 1996 - have two daughters Eva-Mathilde, 13, and Eloise, 17, with one another.
