She began dating James in 2020 and shared snaps of the two of them as they relaxed on their romantic holiday.
Lisa was previously married to presenter Ant from 2006 until they announced they were to divorce in 2018.
Ant and Lisa originally agreed to share their beloved dog Hurley after their marriage collapsed five years ago.
The split came shortly after Ant went to rehab for drink and prescription drug addiction in 2017.
Lisa was granted a decree nisi in October 2018, with the marriage officially ended by April’s decree absolute, marking the end of their 11-year marriage.
Ant went on to marry wife Anne-Marie Corbett in August 2021.
It was revealed by The Mail on Sunday’s Katie Hind that the arrangement is now being disputed, with Lisa telling her ex she wants Hurley to live with her full-time.
The fact Ant has two dogs of his own has prompted Lisa to request Hurley lives with her permanently.

It is understood the Saturday Night Takeaway star is refusing to give up shared custody.
Currently, the dog spends half the time living at Ant’s £6million mansion in Wimbledon and the other half at Lisa’s west London home.
The TV presenter’s chauffeur is reportedly doing the handover so the exes don’t have to see each other.
A source close to Ant said: ‘Lisa has asked to have Hurley but Ant is saying no. He has two more dogs now, a new wife and two stepdaughters, but still he wants joint custody.
‘It has led to some difficult conversations between Ant and Lisa. It’s all very sad. Ant has been able to move on, get remarried and get two more dogs. Lisa has been left to pick up the pieces.’
Hurley was adopted by the couple in 2013 while they struggled to conceive a child.

During their divorce battle, Ant is said to have told lawyers: ‘She can have anything she wants – except the dog.’
And in an interview at the time he said: ‘There’s a loyalty and a love and a companionship with Hurley that you can’t describe. We still share quite evenly. Hurley’s welfare comes first and we both love him very much.’
Meanwhile Lisa is said to refer to Hurley as her ‘baby boy’.
The former couple met at a concert in the mid-1990s, when Ant was performing with his on-screen partner Declan Donnelly as PJ & Duncan.
