Controversial comedian Jim Davidson, 70, is planning to marry his sixth wife, 47-year-old Natasha, it has been reported.

The Celebrity Big Brother winner split from his wife of 14 years and partner of two decades, Michelle Cotton, 52, last year.

Now Natasha – who works as a freelance assistant with him on his ustreme.com channel – has joined him at Nigel Farage’s 60th birthday party, with Davidson declaring his plan to marry her.

The right-wing politician Farage celebrated his birthday at Boisdale’s in Canary Wharf on Wednesday evening alongside a truly bizarre guestlist including former Prime Minister Liz Truss, and he even got a live-streamed shout out from Donald Trump. Yikes.

According to the Daily Mail, Jim said he is ‘completely smitten’ and thinks – after five wives – he’s finally found ‘the one’, as he was said to have urged his friends to tell her to marry him.

The publication report that he added, ‘I’ve just got my divorce through and I’m here with my new girlfriend,’ before joking about his growing list of wives.

Around the time of their split, a source a source said: ‘Jim is really sad and gutted he and Michelle haven’t been able to make things work.’

They added to the Sun: ‘He’s not thrilled at the idea of going through another public divorce. He’s resigned to the reality nothing can be done.’

Davidson’s first marriage to Sue Walpole lasted only a year, from 1971-1972.

He went on to wed Julie Gullick in 1981, with the marriage lasting until 1986, and was then married to Alison Holloway from 1987-1988.

His fourth marriage, to Tracy Hilton, lasted ten years from 1990-2000.

On Piers Morgan’s Life Stories in 2018, Davidson went momentarily quiet when asked whether he planned to stay with Cotton.

The moment happened after Davidson joked he refers to Cotton as his ‘current wife’ to ‘keep her on her toes’.

He told Morgan: ‘She’s a very nice person. She’s impatient. She’s fiery like me. She’s a bear poker. And her mum says “You need that”.’

Morgan then asked: ‘Do you have it in you to stay with the same woman for the rest of your life?’

After some silence, Morgan nudged him and said: ‘She’s a beautiful woman,’ to which Jim replied: ‘There’s loads of beautiful women here.’

He added: ‘I was joking. I hope I’m with Michelle for the rest of my life. There’s no one better I’d like to spend the rest of my life with. Liz Hurley perhaps.’

Davidson previously said he’s a ‘great bird puller’ because he is ‘great fun’ but then when they get to know him they find ‘normality’.

‘When the nightclubs and the chartered planes to Paris stop, and when the slippers come out and the dog on the lap, they withdraw their services,’ he said.

‘So it’s always the woman’s fault?’ Morgan asked.

‘Absolutely,’ Davidson said.

Davidson made shocking comments last September after four women accused Russell Brand of rape, emotional abuse, and sexual assault in a joint investigation by The Times, The Sunday Times and Channel 4 – accusations he vehemently denies.

He told viewers on his YouTube channel that he had been asked his opinion on the major story, and said he was not a fan of Brand but he wanted to ‘ask a few questions.’

The comedian then went on to question whether the women who alleged rape and sexual assault were ‘paid to give evidence to Channel 4 or the Times newspaper.’

In 2022, Davidson also came under fire for making a crass joke about woman footballers.

First referring to the male game, he said: ‘When someone scores a goal, doesn’t happen much down the valley but these guys run around like headless chickens and they whip their shirt off. ‘ 

He continued: ‘Well, I’m looking forward to seeing that in women’s football to tell you the truth.’

The comedian quickly apologised for ‘stooping that low’ before former GB News host Wootton laughed and called him ‘a naughty man.’
