NOEL DIDN'T STEAL MY GIRL.. SHE'S SO HAPPY & SO IN LOVE; Star wins backing of new partner's mum.

Byline: EXCLUSIVE from CAROLINE WATERSTON in France

THE mother of Noel Edmonds' new girlfriend Marjan Simmons last night revealed the TRUTH about her daughter's romance.

And giving the relationship her blessing, she happily told The People that the couple had "fallen in love".

Speaking from Marjan's home at Biot near Nice in the South of France, mum Marjaneh said: "My daughter has finally found happiness with Noel.

"When she first met him they became friends instantly but gradually he has fallen in love with her. I know she feels the same. I am very, very glad."

She told how her 38-year-old daughter's marriage to estranged husband Gary Simmons, 47, hit the rocks almost two years ago.

She said this was shortly after the pair moved with their two children, now aged five and eight, from Gary's home town of Epping, Essex, to France.

Marjaneh added: "Gary has been living separately from the family for several months - five or six at least. And to suggest anything else is clearly insane.

"She has filed for divorce."

Marjaneh added: "As far as I'm aware Gary is in England. I do not like him.

"Before the marriage he was lovely. But afterwards there were many problems.

"Marjan comes from a very good background. She is well-educated and very well cultured. She is a wonderful lady. And Noel is a gentleman."

The People exclusively revealed last week how the twice-married millionaire Mr Blobby star met estate agent Marjan in February while he searched for a home in the South of France.

Noel, 56, went out socially with Marjan in June and their relationship has since progressed into a fully fledged romance.
