TV presenter Ant Anstead is speaking publicly about his relationship with Hollywood superstar Renée Zellweger.

The couple sparked a romance during filming for his Discovery+ docu-series Celebrity IOU: Joyride, but Anstead tried to keep things quiet.

“Look … everybody knows that Renee and I have become quite close, because we kept it secret for a while, and unfortunately some pictures were taken and put out there,” Anstead told E!’s Daily Pop.

“But it was a real pleasure to work with her. She’s a super pro and she can weld.”

In June, it was reported that Zellweger and Anstead were an item.

“Sometimes two people just meet and click, and the timing is right,” an insider told People of the budding romance. “Renée is creative … and often goes for guys who think out of the box. She’s smart, thoughtful and always looking to expand horizons and nurture those around her.”

On June 21, Anstead finalised his divorce from Christina Haack, 37, nine months after announcing their separation. The exes share son Hudson, 21 months, and both have been granted joint legal and physical custody.
