Joley Richardson's ex-boyfriend Jamie Theakston has found a replacement for her in record time - he's now dating Bond beauty Rosamund Pike.

The British television presenter and actor has had a on-off romance with sexy Joely for over two years but they finally split in early 2003.

DIE ANOTHER DAY star Pike has also recently parted with her long term love Simon Woods and was introduced to hunky Theakston by a mutual friend last month (JUN03).

A pal says, "It is very early days for Jamie and Rosamund. They met last month and have been out a few times. He has also been to see her play HITCHCOCK BLONDE.

"Jamie is worried that if there's too much fuss about them dating that it might spoil things. They are taking things very slowly and it's very informal and relaxed at the moment.

"Jamie has had a bit of bad luck in the love life department so he's being very cautious."
