Rather than denying the relationship rumours, Lisa retweeted the message for her followers to see, adding three kiss-blowing emojis, and added: ‘Thank-you Kathy xx.’
The blonde is said to have met James before lockdown but started seeing him properly once restrictions started to ease.
An onlooker who spotted the pair together earlier this month, told The Sun: ‘She and James both looked really happy.
‘They were very lovey-dovey — as you are in the early stages of romance. They were chatting intently, holding hands, and she was laughing a lot.
‘They made no effort to disguise their feelings. After the pictures of the couple emerged, a fan wrote to Lisa on Twitter: ‘Yes Lisa! He is fit! So chuffed for you, get in!!!’

Meanwhile, her ex-husband Ant continues his relationship with his former personal assistant and girlfriend of two years, Anne-Marie Corbett, 43.
Lisa and Ant finalised their divorce back in April after their split in January 2018 following the presenter’s highly documented battle with painkillers and alcohol.

Earlier this year, Saturday Night Takeaway host Ant was reported to have handed over £31 million to Lisa, including their £5 million home in West London.
The beauty expert was said to have been the ‘peacemaker’ during an eight-hour long discussion about her divorce from the TV star, claimed The Sun.
The publication first alleged the TV veteran offered up more than half of his estimated £50 million fortune, but was ‘delighted’ that the case has come to an end as he can ‘move on’, two years after announcing their split.
However, as the news broke, the former musician took to Twitter to deny the reports, posting: ‘Nope a load of nonsense AGAIN….’
She went to ‘like’ tweets that stated: ‘no amount of money could ever compensate for what this poor girl has had to endure’, and ‘Get what you can!
‘You deserve it! Terrible treatment of you since you found out when we did! And with a so called friend! It’s heartbreaking behaviour.
‘I bet the money means nothing in some respects, it certainly can’t buy the respect she deserves or make up for the sh***y spineless way he scurried off & tried to silence her.
‘Whatever the sum is I’m sure it will be put to much better use & I wish her all the best’; and ‘Why do people care what you get, no amount of money big or small can change the fact a heart was broken’. [sic]
At the start of 2020, the former couple were said to be on civil terms, with the exes speaking have ‘without an intermediary’ as they continue to share custody of their pet Labrador.

Late last year, friends of the former couple told The Mail On Sunday that despite efforts by Ant to keep their split low-key, Lisa still wanted her day in court. She is understood to have felt that Ant ‘got away with a lot’ following their split.
She was also believed to be dismayed and deeply hurt that he moved on so quickly when he started a new relationship with Anne-Marie.
A source close to the couple said: ‘Ant has been very generous in terms of the financial settlement but Lisa is totally the opposite of someone who is motivated by money.
‘She doesn’t care about that – she earns her own. But she has been so hurt by all of this.
‘What the general public and his fans don’t realise is that Ant’s decision to end the marriage came after years of Lisa trying to save him from himself.
‘There were at least three years when she was at her wits’ end and it was tough. Watching him move on was very, very difficult. Lisa is very much aware that a judge may not award her as much as Ant is offering but she doesn’t care.
‘She has suffered tremendously in all of this and she wants her day in court.’
Their union legally came to an end during a 30-second hearing in October 2018, finalising over a decade of marriage. He can now marry his ‘rock’ Anne-Marie.
Ant and Lisa met at a roadshow in Newcastle in the mid-1990s while Lisa was an aspiring pop star in Deuce. He had often spoken of their struggle to have children.
Ant McPartlin and Lisa Armstrong’s relationship timeline
Ant and Lisa first met in 1994. At the time Ant and life-long TV partner Declan Donnelly were reaching new TV and music heights as PJ & Duncan following their stint on Byker Grove. Lisa was in a band called Deuce at the time.
The pair met in the 1994 Smash Hits tour in Newcastle, where Lisa’s Deuce performed alongside Ant and Dec’s musical alter-egos.
They started dating and were together for over ten years before Ant decided to take it to the next level, proposing to Lisa while on holiday in Dubai in 2005.
They were married in 2006 on July 26 at a country house hotel in Buckinghamshire. Dec was Ant’s best man.
In that time, Deuce split and Lisa retrained as a makeup artist, ultimately working her way up to become head of makeup and hair for BBC’s Strictly Come Dancing.
In 2013, Ant and Lisa spoke about their struggles to conceive, telling Radio Times: ‘Lisa and I would love to have kids. We’re trying. It’s tougher than you think when you get a bit older.’
The TV star also revealed that he wasn’t holding off from having children until Dec, who at the time was single at the time, was with someone.
‘There’s a rumour that we do everything together and I’m holding off having kids till Dec finds himself Mrs Right. I love that idea, but I’m afraid it’s not true.’

He also told Fabulous Magazine: ‘I think I’m lucky. Lisa works in the industry and understands it. She’s constantly working – sometimes more than me!
‘We would love to have a family so fingers crossed. If we’re blessed with children, then we’d be over the moon!’
The pair made a public appearance when they attended Dec’s wedding to Ali Astall, where Ant returned the favour and served as Dec’s best man.
Lisa frequently supports Ant and his lucrative TV career, most recently attending the 2017 National Television Awards—just 12 months before the couple announced their separation.
In June 2017, Ant went into rehab for alcohol and drug addiction.
In a statement to The Sun at the time, Ant said: ‘The first step is to admit to yourself you need help. I’ve let people down. I’m truly sorry. I feel like I have let a lot of people down and for that I’m truly sorry. I want to thank my wife, family and closest friends through this really difficult time.’
Lisa took to Twitter to thank the support her husband received: ‘Completely overwhelmed by all your love & support it means so much. I’m relieved he’s receiving the help he needs, we just need him better.’
Ant then told the Sun about the impact his addiction had on Lisa: I’ve put Lisa through hell with mood swings and depression and how it affects you. I’m very sorry about the effect it has on partners. This kind of stuff puts strains on any marriage. All I can say at the moment is that she’s been amazing — fantastic throughout.’
In autumn 2017, rumours of a split emerged after Lisa didn’t accompany Ant to Australia for I’m A Celeb, something which she quickly denied, pointing out she has a job and hasn’t been to Australia for years.
On January 14, 2018, the couple announced that their 11-year marriage has ended.
The couple announced their split in January when a representative said: ‘In response to the recent speculation in the media, Ant is very sad to announce that, after eleven years, he is ending his marriage to Lisa McPartlin.
In March 2018, Anne-Marie Corbett, the couple’s personal assistant was seen giving Ant a packed lunch outside his house. She accompanied him to his court date in April.
The pair continue to be seen over the next several months, and in June 2018, having revealed that she didn’t know Ant and Corbett were dating, Lisa accused Ant’s new girlfriend of ‘breaking the girl code’ by dating the TV star.
In October 2018, just days before their divorce application was granted, Ant was seen holding his phone, which has him and Corbett as the screensaver.
Their union legally came to an end during a 30-second hearing.
