Closer (UK) - - Love Dramas -

She was pic­tured walk­ing hand-in-hand with boyfriend Michael Reed last week – and pals say Zoe Ball has fi­nally found hap­pi­ness again af­ter the tragic sui­cide of her boyfriend Billy Yates last May.

In­sid­ers re­veal the TV host, 47, met the busi­ness­man, also 47, af­ter be­ing in­tro­duced through mu­tual pals last Oc­to­ber – and say he’s help­ing her over­come her grief.

A source says, “Zoe and Michael are even talk­ing about mov­ing in to­gether. As soon as they met, there was a con­nec­tion and chem­istry be­tween them and things pro­gressed quite quickly.”

Zoe split from her hus­band of 18 years, Nor­man Cook, aka Fat­boy Slim, 54 – with whom she has Woody, 17, and Nelly, eight – in 2016 and moved on with cam­era­man Billy.

Last week, Zoe ap­peared on The One Show and re­vealed how she’ll be hon­our­ing Billy’s mem­ory by taking part in a cy­cling chal­lenge in the hope of rais­ing aware­ness for those strug­gling with de­pres­sion.

In­sid­ers tell Closer how dadof-two Michael is keen to make the move from Kent to Brighton to live with Zoe full-time. A source adds, “Michael’s been an in­cred­i­ble com­fort for Zoe and things are se­ri­ous. She’s the hap­pi­est she’s been in months and cred­its him with pulling her out of a dark place.”
