And the Atomic Kitten star looked happier than ever as she posed for a romantic snap with her new beau as they enjoyed a romantic getaway to Scotland.
Putting on a cosy display, the mother-of-five and James wrapped up in a tartan scarf while smiling for the camera during their trip.
Beaming away, Kerry, 37, looked happier than ever during an embrace with the comedian, just weeks after they confirmed their relationship on social media.
Kerry’s new boyfriend lovingly captioned the photo with several kissing-face emojis, before the blonde beauty returned the favour by sharing her own snap with her Scottish partner.
The pair dressed up for a romantic night out together, as Kerry flaunted her figure in skin-tight black jeans and a leather jacket adorned with floral details.
Wrapping his arm around his girlfriend, James looked prouder than ever as he posed for a picture with the reality TV star.

Kerry confirmed her split from husband George Kay in June, and revealed shortly after how her teenage daughters, Molly, 15, and Lily-Sue, 14, had been affected by their mother’s relationship.
Speaking to the Sunday People in July, Kerry said: “I feel like the worst mother in the world and I will never forgive myself.
“No child should have to hear what they heard or see what they saw. I said to the girls, ‘I’m so sorry I’ve let this go on for so long'”.
Kerry claims former boxer George persuaded her to sever friendships and regularly using foul language towards her, as well as “spitting in her face” on several occasions.
The mother of five continued to say: “He had so much power over me, but I can’t let my children go back to that, even if I could. I said to the girls, ‘I’m so sorry I’ve let this go on for so long.”
