Larry Lamb has split from his long-term partner Clare Burt, according to reports. The I'm a Celebrity star is believed to have moved on with French woman Marie Hugo – the same lady who met him after he exited the jungle.
His campmate Martin Roberts spilled the beans during an appearance on This Morning, stating that Larry, 69, has a "lovely new lady". Martin, who clashed with Larry on the show, described how the pair reconciled before leaving Australia.

"It was our final morning – I was having breakfast with Kirsty and the kids – and who should walk up but Larry and his lovely lady," said Martin.
"It was the last I was probably going to see them and I just grabbed Larry and hugged him. And I kept hold of him and said this is a real hug, and he just broke down in tears. He said, 'I am so, so sorry about the way I acted towards you, and I am so sorry about what I said.'"

After his elimination from the show, Larry was met by Marie, who was simply introduced as 'Larry's friend'. The pair were filmed embracing and speaking in French on the jungle bridge. "What a story," Larry said to her, to which she replied: "It's long."
Driving to meet him in the jungle, Marie praised her 'friend', telling the camera: "I am very proud of Larry. He has been busy looking after everybody, which I must say he does always. I will give him a big hug. He deserves it – more than one!"
The EastEnders star was previously in a relationship with actress Clare Burt for 20 years. The pair have two daughters, Eloise Alexandra and Eva-Mathilde.
