Denise Van Outen ended their seven-year relationship back in January of this year after discovering false reports.
And Eddie Boxshall appeared to copy his ex via Instagram on Saturday, sharing the story with a voiceover explaining: “It’s so much better to be alone than to be with someone who makes you feel lonely.”
The 49-year-old’s post comes just a week after Denise went public with her new Italian boyfriend, Jimmy Barba.
Bitter ex? Eddie Boxshall, 49, appeared to take a dig at his ex Denise Van Outen via Instagram on Saturday, suggesting she made him “feel lonely”.
Sharing the message with his 65.2k followers, Eddie shared a video of the horizon from a plane window with a motivational voiceover.
Hook explained, “You deserve someone who can’t wait to talk to you, spend time with you, get to know you, fall in love with you.
“Please stop settling for the half-hearted, the lukewarm, the wavering and the indecisive. It’s much better to be alone than to be with someone who makes you feel lonely.”
The story follows a series of thinly veiled posts from Eddie earlier this year, all of which involved his ex-partner

He posted a black-and-white image of Inspector Clouseau, described as “a clumsy and incompetent police detective in the French Sûreté” – and the accompanying caption led many to believe he was hinting at his ex’s detective skills.

An Italian reality TV star, Jimmy became a household name in Italy back in 2010 after starring in the eleventh series of Big Brother (Grande Fratello), where he finished fourth.
A short-lived pop career followed, with Jimmy releasing three singles between 2012 and 2013, though they failed to chart.
More recently, Jimmy – who described his career as a dancer and farmer when he appeared on Grande Fratello – shunned the world of show business to become a property developer.
