Footballer’s Wife gets clucky with Chris

Footballer’s Wives’ star Zoe Lucker says she’s ready to have a baby. The 32-year-old, who plays Tanya Turner in the hit show, has told pals she finally feels the time is right for her to start a family. Perhaps it’s because she’s got a new beau – British TV host Chris Evans, whose show she appeared on last month. A source says, “Zoe and Chris are definitely together and they are very, very happy. They’re trying to keep their romance under wraps, but it’s the worst kept secret in showbiz.” Zoe has been single since she left DJ Tom Thorpe in April. Meanwhile, Chris split with his wife, 24-year-old Dr Who star Billie Piper, in September 2004 and has previously dated Geri Halliwell, Anna Friel, and Anthea Turner. [9 January 2006]
