CHEEKY David Walliams propositioned Pussycat Dolls star Ashley Roberts — after secretly dating a celebrity make-up artist, the Sun on Sunday can reveal.
David, 48, has been single since his acrimonious divorce from supermodel Lara Stone five years ago.
They have a son, Alfred, six, together.
Last night a source said: “David was really knocked after his painful split from Lara, but is very much looking for love now.
“He had a connection with Lou and they started dating in January.
“On paper, they’re a slightly incongruous couple, but they had a real giggle before David decided they weren’t a great fit and called time on things.
“He then started asking after a couple of women, and took to Instagram with a vengeance looking for suitable girlfriends.
“One of the women he has messaged is Ashley.
“He thinks she’s gorgeous. He’s sent a couple of flirty messages and hopes to take her out once lockdown is over.”
Yorkshire-born Lou, 36, is one of the most successful make-up artists on the showbiz circuit.
After working on the X Factor, she became the primary hair stylist on Britain’s Got Talent, where she met David.
