Denise Van Outen is reportedly back in touch with her ex Jay Kay following her split from Eddie Boxshall.
The 47 year old broke up with Eddie in January this year after it had been reported that she had discovered a series of secret messages on his phone to other women.
And now it has been claimed that Denise is "speaking again" with Jamiroquai singer Jay – who she dated for three years and before going their separate ways in 2001.
"Denise and Jay have been speaking again, and it has been good for both of them to have that connection," a source said.
It was added to The Sun: "Their split was very painful, but a lot of water has passed under the bridge."
OK! has contacted a representative for Denise for further comment.
The former couple met in 1998 when GQ Magazine asked Denise to interview the musician at Silverstone racetrack.
They immediately hit it off, and Jay invited Denise back to his house in Buckinghamshire, with things only going from strength to strength.
Denise then ended up spending the whole weekend at Jay's house for their second date, after the singer convinced the presenter to stay over at his house on a Sunday evening before she had to be up at 3 am for filming for The Big Breakfast.
She also dished about their wild sex life in her brand new book, A Bit of Me: From Basildon to Broadway and Back, where she said she found herself scrabbling around for her underwear in the early hours of the morning, later realising she couldn't find them because Jay's pet dog was eating them!
Meanwhile, Denise is feeling "really hurt" following her break-up with Eddie and is "licking her wounds", a source recently told OK!
In recent days, Eddie vowed to move on from The Only Way Is Essex voiceover star, but a source said that Denise doesn't feel the same.
"Denise is feeling really hurt at the moment," OK!'s source revealed.
"She's sad that her friends that warned her about him are being proved right.
"She's not ready to find love again, she's licking her wounds," they explained. "She's putting everything into focusing on the book and work and getting her mojo out. This has made her very wary."
