GRAND Designs star Kevin McCloud has found new love — four years after walking out on his wife of 23 years.
The 62-year-old has been spotted out strolling near his home with dark-haired businesswoman Jenny Jones.

The Channel 4 host appears to be living happily with Jenny at a smart Victorian terraced property in the West Country. They have been seen out and about shopping and dining.
An onlooker told The Sun: “They looked very comfortable together and seem very much a couple.”
When Kevin split from his wife Suzanna, known as Zani, he left her distraught at his sudden exit.
He and Suzanna, a designer, have two grown-up children together — Milo and Elsie. He also has two other children, Hugo and Grace, from previous relationships.

A spokeswoman for Kevin refused to comment on his new relationship but confirmed he is now divorced.
He and Jenny are seen out and about but passers-by scarcely recognise him as he routinely wears a Covid mask, even outdoors.
Our source said: “Kevin has one of the best known faces on TV after nearly two decades on Grand Designs — but it’s constantly behind a Covid mask these days.
“His partner seemed more relaxed and took hers off as they loaded shopping into his Alfa Romeo.

““He keeps himself to himself but they looked at ease together and seemed close.”
Cambridge-educated Kevin’s Grand Designs show has charted the highs and lows of building ambitious homes since 1999.
The Green Party supporter appears to be a fan of trendy, minimalist eco-friendly homes on screen — but seems to favour more traditional properties himself.

His current home is a three-storey townhouse in a picture postcard setting.
And he shared a 500-year-old farmhouse with Suzanna, now 59, in Somerset.
The couple sold their previous Grade II-listed home in 2010 to Fifty Shades Of Grey director Sam Taylor-Johnson for £1.85million.
