Denise Van Outen Confirms New Romance With Property Developer Jimmy Barba With First Public Sighting

The television personality is caught holding hands with her new boyfriend while attending the 12th annual Grand Prix Ball in The Hurlingham Club, Fulham, London.

AceShowbizDenise Van Outen has gone public with her rumored new boyfriend. On Wednesday night, June 29 at the 12th annual Grand Prix Ball in The Hurlingham Club, Fulham, London, the former “Big Breakfast” host was seen holding hands with Jimmy Barba.

The 48-year-old presenter has been reportedly dating the 55-year-old property developer after the breakdown of her seven-year relationship with Eddie Boxshall eight months ago following her discovery of texts to other women on his mobile phone. Sources told MailOnline the couple have been dating for a few weeks after being introduced by a mutual friend.

The couple are said to have met through All Saints singer Shaznay Lewis with the insider revealing they have been “on a few dates.” They added, “It’s early days but everything is going really well and Denise is happy.”

Entrepreneur Barba owns Whiteditch Lane Development LTD and appears from his social media to be a father to a young daughter, while van Outen is mum to 10-year-old Betsy, whom she shares with her 40-year-old ex-partner Lee Mead.

About her split from Boxshall, van Outen said she caught him flirting sexually with three women and described his behavior as “disrespectful” and “devastatingly hurtful.” She added in her autobiography “A Bit Of Me: From Basildon to Broadway and Back”, “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 went on detailing. “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, “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.”
