The Atomic Kitten star sparked rumours she’s enjoying a new romance after she was seen locking lips with the former rugby player at London’s Gatwick Airport this week.
She was seen kissing James as she greeted him in the terminal before they got into a car together and sped away.
They met at an Atomic Kitten gig this year and she has been visiting him in Scotland so they can enjoy dates in private.
James is a dad to two kids and he appeared on a reality show called Glow, dubbed the Scottish Towie, last year.
But he has a dark past as The Sun Online revealed he once assaulted a woman in McDonald’s and spat in her face.
James pleaded guilty to assaulting Michelle McArthur, 33, during a brawl at McDonald’s in Glasgow’s Finnieston in November 2015.
The 32-year-old was initially charged with punching Michelle on the head and yanking her by the hair but that was later deleted from the charge.
Instead he said he was guilty of assaulting her and spitting on her face.
The wannabe celebrity had his sentence put back for a year for good behaviour when he appeared in the dock at Glasgow Sheriff Court.
After her marriage broke down, she alleged she had violent rows with George in front of her kids, who begged her to leave him.
Speaking to the Sunday People 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.”
As well as her marriage woes, Kerry was also left reeling when her eldest daughter Molly, 16, decided to move to Ireland to live with her dad Brian McFadden’s parents.
Kerry recently joked that she has been looking for husband number four since her split from George – and she could have set her sights on James.
During an appearance on Loose Women, she also joked that she only weds to land big money deals and her decision over whether she will get married again depends on how much she’s offered.
She said: “It depends on how much OK! is going to pay me for my next wedding.
“I’ve got to make a living somehow.”
The Sun revealed the couple’s three-year marriage crumbled this summer.
George is believed to have moved out of the family home in Crowborough, over the summer.
Kerry has two daughters from her first marriage to Westlife star Brian McFadden, Molly, 16, and Lilly-Sue, 14, as well as Heidi, 10, and Maxwell, nine, with second husband Mark Croft.
