ZOË’S ANGER AS NOR­MAN DATES HER BEST FRIEND

Heat (UK) - - This Week We’re Obsessed With... -

They weren’t ex­actly a con­ven­tional cou­ple – or con­ven­tional exes – but this is next level. Last week, it was re­vealed that Nor­man Cook is dat­ing his ex-wife Zoë Ball’s close friend Ni­cola Lokko. And – if you need any ex­tra weird in all this – the for­mer cou­ple ap­par­ently used to dou­ble date with Nic and her ex. Zoë, 47, is said to be “reel­ing”, even though she’s now liv­ing far away from Nor­man, and has since found love her­self with con­struc­tion firm boss Michael Reed. The It Takes Two host, who di­vorced the DJ, 55, in 2016, af­ter 18 years to­gether, had – un­til re­cently – lived in Brighton, just two doors down from her ex. She’s since moved to Ditch­ling, Sus­sex, em­brac­ing coun­try life with their kids, Woody, 17, and Nelly, eight, a year af­ter the tragic death of her for­mer boyfriend Billy Yates.

Ni­cola, 41, is the owner of fash­ion brand All About Me, and was pre­vi­ously in a re­la­tion­ship with ac­tor Mark Wil­liams, 59, (aka Arthur Weasley from Harry Pot­ter).

Nor­man and Zoë mar­ried in 1999, and broke up for three months in 2003, when she cheated with his friend, DJ Dan Peppe. When they split for good, they an­nounced, “We have come to the end of our rain­bow,” and have since re­mained close – but whether they’ll now stay the friendli­est of exes re­mains to be seen.

“Erm, wtf?”

“Soz, Zoë”
