Keeley Hazell’s past, romance with the Hollywood star and David Walliam’s reunion
Gamour model turned Hollywood actress Keeley Hazell had an affair with Jason Sudeikis – but was recently spotted comfortable with ex David Walliams, who she first dated in the 2000s.
David Walliams looked like the cat who got the cream at his pal Ant McPartlin’s wedding to Anne-Marie Corbett this weekend, as he showed up with stunning actress Keeley Hazell on his arm.
Keeley and David, 49, are said to have “special chemistry” and she is said to have lived with him after returning to London last year, following his brief romance with Hollywood actor Jason Sudeikis, 45.
Keeley, 34, first rose to fame as a hot model for The Sun in 2004, and had her last glamor shoot in 2009.
However, she sent a very steamy cleavage photo to the England Euros team earlier this year, captioning the bra photo “good luck guys”.

In 2012, Keeley decided to become an actress and moved her entire life to Hollywood, taking acting classes and landing a few small roles.
But she would face judgment for her past as a glamorous model.
“People look at you differently or don’t take you seriously because you were once a topless model,” she told The Sun.
“You’re not completely plugged into the way society views women, so even though it was such a great experience, there’s still a snobbery about page 3, which is a real shame.
“But doing it allowed me to pay for a theater school and to have opportunities that I wouldn’t have been able to take otherwise.”
But in 2020, Keeley revealed she had returned to London to “find love”, and said she had just ended a three-and-a-half-year relationship with a mysterious man in Los Angeles.

And earlier this year, rumors circulated that she was dating It’s Always Sunny star Jason, who currently lives in the UK.
Keeley reportedly met Jason in 2014 while they were filming Horrible Bosses 2, and remained only friends.
But they decided to take their friendship to the next level when Jason split from his longtime actress girlfriend Olivia Wilde at the end of 2020, and she continued dating Harry Styles.
Jason was said to have been so enamored with Keeley that he even named a character in his honor in his new comedy series on Apple TV.
Juno Temple’s character in Ted Lasso is called Keeley – and she is believed to have been the inspiration.
Keeley even landed a role on the show, playing a woman named Bex who, ironically, is caught in a love triangle.
A source told The Sun: “Jason has always found Keeley incredibly attractive and has told his friends that he has had a crush on her since his days.
“When Jason found his wife and Harry [Styles], Keeley was one of the people he turned to.
“During this time, he was understandably devastated, but she was brilliant and incredibly supportive.”
In March, tongues began to stir over Keeley and Jason when he appeared via Zoom at the Golden Globes to accept the award for best actor in a comedy series for Ted Lasso.
Fans noticed he was sitting in what looked like the same living room where Keeley posted a photo of her on social media earlier today.

This sparked speculation that they were secretly living together in London.
And in June, Keeley and Jason were spotted looking delicate on a date in New York City, and he was pictured leaving his apartment.
But in August, Keeley was spotted arm in arm with comedian David, with whom she had already dated in 2020, but also with whom she mingled in the 2000s on the London nightclub scene, where they were often photographed together.
And David would have been a “great admirer” of Keeley’s work at the time.
Keeley is said to have stayed in David’s lavish London pillow for nine months when she returned to London last year.
And in November, they had been spotted very comfortable at a romantic dinner with her dog, Bert.
A source told The Sun: “David and Keeley seemed to really enjoy each other’s company and were very tactile in the restaurant.
“Once they left, she cuddled up to him braving the cold depths of a November night.”
And judging by the snaps from Ant’s wedding, where David has his arm around Keeley’s waist, they’re giving their romance another shot – again.
David also uploaded a tender photo with Keeley as he stood behind her, tying her hair up while on vacation together in Italy.
Next to the photos, David wrote the hilarious caption: “Kudos to @keeleyhazell who won a contest to meet me.”
David has already been linked with a multitude of gorgeous women, including his ex-model Lara Stone, with whom he shares his eight-year-old son Alfred.
It is also said that he dated former One Direction hairstylist Lou Teasdale, Geri Halliwell, and model Chloe Ayling, who starred in Celebrity Big Brother.
