Former Family Fortunes frontman, Les Dennis has found love again with a Chiswick woman 17 years his junior. 

After suffering more than his fair share of heartache, Les Dennis has fallen for 35 year old Claire Nicholson after she asked him for a dance.

According to an insider, the relationship is going from strength to strength "Les is a very private man, and hasn't told many folk. He wanted to get to know her first."

Romance blossomed after Claire asked the comic to dance five months ago at a ball held in memory of Laura Sadler, the Holby City star who fell to her death from a balcony.

Since then Life Coach Claire, has enjoyed a string of dates with Les who has been spotted letting himself into her home in Chiswick.

Les Dennis had a painful split from actress wife Amanda Holden in 2002 after her fling with Men Behaving Badly star Neil Morrissey. The shattered comic broke down on Celebrity Big Brother, sharing his misery with millions of viewers. His career is now firmly back on track after his roles in Ricky Gervais's comedy Extras and West End play Murderer.

After Family Fortunes was axed four years ago, Dennis is also set to make his comeback as a quiz host with a new show which is currently aptly entitled "Classic Comeback" to be shown on UKTV Gold.
