David Walliams hits the town with Kate Beckinsale following split with supermodel Lara

Comedian David Walliams was spotted without his wedding ring for the first time at an event last month following his split with his supermodel wife Lara Stone and it seems he is intent on moving on from the six-year relationship.
The Britain’s Got Talent judge was spotted enjoying the company of his friend Kate Beckinsale, who he brought as his plus-one to an ITV event last night.
The pair have been friends for many years and David has previously said the actress had the ability to make him turn into “jelly”.
The friends attended ITV’s annual summer party in London yesterday.
Although the pair looked looked cosy, the pair are just strong friends as Kate has been married to Hollywood producer Len Wiseman from more than a decade.
David and his wife Lara split three months ago five years after their 2010 wedding and have a son Alfred together.
Sources close to Walliams revealed that the comedian was devastated by the split and desperately wants to save the relationship.
“David was holding out hope that he and Lara would stay together,” a source told The Mirror.
“But after going to America this month he realised he needs to try and move on. This is the first step in that direction.”
“He met up with James Corden while he was in LA. It helped to clear his head and his friends have rallied around helping him to move on with the split.”
Supermodel Lara has moved into a luxury apartment around the corner from the couple’s home in Highgate and is rumoured to be seeing photographer Matt Easton, who she has been friends with since 2011.
