David Walliams has been making the most of his downtime in the South of France as he was seen having a swim with a female pal in St Tropez.

The comedian and Britain’s Got Talent judge, 48, is a keen swimmer – though his dip in the sea was easy going compared to the time he swam the entire English Channel in 10 hours and 34 minutes in 2006. 

We’re going to go out on a limb and assume he did not swim his way to France this time around though…

Being a keen swimmer, David has also previously swum 140 miles in the River Thames in 2011, so it’s no wonder he made sure to spend time by the sea while he was away.

David was seen talking to a female pal as the pair swam in the waters after enjoying the sunshine on a beach day with friends. 

It comes after reports David had been living with his friend Keeley Hazell, 33, a former Page 3 model ahead of lockdown, as she renovated her own place.

The pair have been close friends for many years, and were often seen partying together before the dad-of-one married ex-wife Lara Stone. 

An insider revealed they ‘go way back’ and share a ‘special chemistry’ but are just good friends.

‘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.’

The source added to The Sun: ‘Keeley also used David’s pad as a base while renovating her new home in London. She moved out just before lockdown.’

David and Lara had been together since 2009, marrying the following year and welcoming their son Alfred in 2013 before separating in 2015.
