kelly's break; DATES WITH CO-STAR SPELL END FOR JASON.

Byline: TIM MILES in Cannes and JANE KERR

KELLY Brook's relationship with boyfriend Jason Statham looks doomed after secret dates with her movie co-star.

The screen beauty, 24, and Titanic hunk Billy Zane were spotted kissing passionately during a romantic meal over the weekend.

Ex-Big Breakfast presenter Kelly and Billy, 38, cuddled, held hands and gazed lovingly into each other's eyes during a candlelit dinner at a French Riviera restaurant.

Days earlier the Daily Mirror's 3am column broke the news of their affair, which seems to have ended her seven-year relationship with Snatch hardman Jason, 31. Signs of the spark between Kelly and Billy were obvious when they filmed the movie Three earlier this year, her first big Hollywood role. They play lovers on screen but showed lots of off-screen chemistry as they shared a personal joke during filming in the Bahamas - with Jason thousands of miles away.

The couple carried on long after filming stopped as they went on dates at La Colombe D'Or hotel restaurant near French resort Cannes. The restaurant is a favourite with the likes of Posh and Becks and Elton John.

At one stage Billy caressed her hand and brushed his lips across her fingertips. They were oblivious to other guests' glances on the open terrace. After the meal they tried to cover their tracks, leaving separately. However, diners said they had shared an intimate lunch there the day before. One waiter revealed: "Billy's a regular in here."

Last week our 3am girls told how the pair had been seen together in a London pub. The couple insisted they were "just good friends" and were discussing their movie.

Three, in which Kelly and Billy are stranded on an island, also stars Juan Pablo di Pace. But their dates in Cannes show how Kelly and Billy have fallen for each other.

Last year she branded marriage unsexy, adding: "I don't want to be a wife, I want to be a challenge."

Now Jason is certainly facing one.
