KEELEY Hazell has wished David Walliams a happy birthday after rumours they’d embarked on a romance.
The former Page 3 model, 33, looked cosy with David, 49, in a snap she shared on Instagram as she paid tribute to the Britain’s Got Talent judge.
Keeley wore dark sunglasses and a jumper as she cuddled up to David, who roped his adorable dog Bert in for the snap.
However she branded David a “friend” as Keeley wrote over the photo: “Happy Birthday to my wonderful, talented, generous friend @DWALLIAMS.”
Last month, HOAR revealed David had secretly shacked up with model Keeley Hazell for nine months.
She stayed at his London home after returning from work in the US.
Sources close to the funnyman insist the pair are just long-term pals, but share a “special chemistry”.
A friend said: “David and Keeley go way back and have kept in touch since she attempted to break into acting in the US.
Earlier this year, Keeley revealed she was searching for love and new work.
She told her Instagram followers: “Looking for a job and a boyfriend.
“Not sure where I’m going wrong.”
David and Keeley were regulars on the London party circuit in the late Noughties.
She comforted the Little Britain star when he broke up with another model, Lauren Budd.
They attended showbiz bashes together before David settled down with model Lara Stone, the mother of his six-year-old son Alfred.
“He has a big empty home and was grateful for the company so it suited both parties.
“During her glamour modelling days, David was known as a keen admirer but now sees her very much as a close pal.
“Keeley also used David’s pad as a base while renovating her new home in London.
“She moved out just before lockdown.”
