She declared that last year was ‘the worst time’ of her life, but a new and far happier chapter is now dawning for Lilly Becker, estranged wife of Wimbledon legend Boris Becker.
For just a week after she and Boris emerged from London‘s Central Family Court to announce that they had reached an agreement about ‘future arrangements’ for their nine-year-old son, it seems that the glamorous Lilly has found comfort with television executive Pierre Uebelhack.
The couple, pictured heading for brunch on a Saturday morning in Wimbledon, are enjoying each other’s company both in London and in Munich.

Indeed, Lilly, who initially vowed to fight to save her marriage to Becker after he was declared bankrupt in 2017, has gone as far as introducing their son to 44-year-old Uebelhack, who has produced an intriguing variety of TV shows, including Global Gladiators, Prankenstein and Teenagers Out Of Control.
Uebelhack, who has a flat in Munich, recently greeted Lilly with a bunch of flowers on a Sunday morning, before offering evidence of his credentials as a potential step-father by buying breakfast for both her and her son, before waving them off on their return flight to London a few hours later.
But whether Lilly, 42, is quite ready for a third marital excursion must remain open to conjecture.

Her first husband was Michael R. Bermann, an American lawyer whom she met after moving to Miami Beach to work in a bar. They married in 2003, but only two years later she encountered Becker.
Lilly and Bermann divorced in 2008, and the following year she wed Boris, whose first marriage to American designer Barbara Feltus had ended in 2001 after he impregnated Russian model Angela Ermakova during a fleeting encounter at Nobu restaurant in Mayfair.
Lilly was unavailable for comment.
International Trade Secretary Liam Fox has awarded taxpayer cash to a Blackpool punk band called Boston Manor in a drive to help British groups ‘break into new global markets’.
‘You missed the exit sign / It’s all falling apart now / ‘Cause we were doing fine / Until you messed it up now,’ they rage on jaunty anthem, Hate You. Will Fox and his colleagues serenade the PM with the song at the next Brexit Cabinet?
Looking for a flash car? Try Princess Margaret’s Roller
Fancy a regal motor? Not one but two royal cars are up for sale. The Queen’s 2012 green Bentley Mulsanne is on the market for £119,950 at Bramley Motors near Guildford, Surrey.
It was an integral part of the Diamond Jubilee celebrations and was seen outside 10 Downing Street when she visited David Cameron. The other car, at the same garage, is Princess Margaret’s 1980 Silver Wraith Rolls-Royce in cardinal red, at £99,950. It still has the Royal Crest mountings, Standard pennant, plus a police blue light.
The interior has door copings in black nuala leather, which Margaret chose as they did not reflect the glare from media flashguns.

Stephen Kinnock, Labour MP and son of former Labour leader Neil, has grown a beard. Lord Kinnock may not approve. He was once told by his own father that politicians should not grow beards and should shave regularly ‘so that they have to look in the mirror every day’.

Monty Don’s a secret big breakfast fanatic
Gardeners’ World presenter Monty Don admits that collaborating with photographer Derry Moore, aka the Earl of Drogheda, is hungry work.
‘You may think that we went to look at gardens,’ he tells me at the launch of their latest book, Japanese Gardens, at Christie’s in St James’s. ‘In fact, the whole point of travelling with Derry is to look for breakfast.
‘I’ve been pretty much round the world searching for good breakfasts with Derry. It’s quite competitive, because he will try to out-breakfast you and take what you’ve got.’

Olivia hopes to needle MPs
There’s a new point to politics. Model turned acupuncturist Olivia Inge has opened her first clinic in London’s Upper Berkeley Street — and she wants to give the needle to our overstressed parliamentarians.
‘If they had acupuncture, they would be more relaxed and make better decisions,’ Olivia tells me of her alternative medicine practice in which fine needles are inserted into the body.
‘I’d like to get my hands on everyone in the Cabinet. Acupuncture helps you sleep better, and looking at Theresa May’s face I doubt she’s getting a good eight-hour stretch every night.’
Olivia, a descendant of Victorian prime minister William Gladstone, adds: ‘If Theresa wanted to come to my clinic, I wouldn’t give her a discount. She’d have to pay like everyone else.’
