Lara Stone and Little Britain star enjoy romantic break

Little Britain star David Walliams and fiancée Lara Stone have been snapped taking a romantic Valentine’s Day break in Venice.

The couple, who got engaged after a 7-month romance, enjoyed a boat ride before stopping at a cafe in Piazza San Marco for a cappuccino.

Lara. 26, also enjoyed a cigarette which David, 38 – a non-smoker – didn’t seem to mind a bit.

The comedian, who swam the English Channel in 2006, is currently training for a 1,000 mile charity bike ride.

Lara’s dad has revealed the comedian wooed his daughter with passion after they met at a football match.

Lara didn’t know who he was, but he was calling her all the time and sending flowers – so many flowers,’ Michael Stone, 72, told the Daily Mail.

‘He once filled his whole house with flowers as a surprise for her.  The last thing she wanted was a boyfriend. But he was so persistent.

David is a real romantic, very different to the characters he plays in Little Britain. He is very serious, but a very caring man and very intelligent.’
