Davinia Taylor nabs Noel Gallagher’s £8million four-storey North London mansion

Anyone would be forgiven for thinking Davinia Taylor is following Noel Gallagher from property to property.

Having already purchased the Oasis star’s £3.25million West London home – Supernova Heights – in 2005, before offloading it to David Walliams, the ex-party girl has now acquired Noel’s £8million North London mansion, complete with a gym, six bedrooms and a garden room. 

The Primrose Hill socialite and ex-Hollyoaks star, 41, has purchased the property which can be found less than two-miles from Supernova Heights.

The Grade II-listed home boasts a pergola, four-storeys and a self-contained mews house.

‘Davinia might look like the ultimate Oasis superfan but she just happens to like Noel’s houses,’ a source told The Sun. ‘She’s also good friends with his ex Meg Matthews.

‘She heard the place was up for sale. She messaged Noel to see what the deal was. Sadly there was no mates’ rates on offer, as Meg would have gone mental. But Davinia fell in love with the place and moves in later this month.’

Another draw, according to the source, was that ‘she’s a keen runner and there are a couple of brilliant parks nearby’.

Davinia used to hang out with Noel and the likes of Sadie Frost, Jude Law, Kelly Osborne, Naomi Campbell, Kate Moss and Noel’s brother Liam, on a regular basis.

Things have changed since those days, however; Liam and Noel don’t speak, Sadie and Jude split and Davinia is no longer as pally with Kate.

The mother-of-four is now in a long-term relationship with builder Matthew Leyden, whom she is in business with. The pair purchase homes, renovate them, and sell them on for a profit, according to The Sun.

She used to be married to David Beckham’s good pal, Dave Gardner, but split from him in 2010, after which a bitter divorce battle ensued.

These days she enjoys a very different lifestyle with her four boys, having turned her back on wild nights in favour of daily workouts in the gym and a diet of green smoothies washed down with charcoal water.

In the past, Davinia battled both alcoholism and a bout of post-natal depression which she has described as a ‘really dark hole’ from which she struggled to climb out.

Davinia temporarily lost custody of her eldest son Gray, 12, when she first split from her ex-husband. She since credited that ‘humiliation’ for keeping her sober, and her recent flurry of Instagram snaps capture a passionate devotee of clean living eager who’s glowing with health in her myriad gym selfies.

Davinia, who played Jude Cunningham in Hollyoaks, is the daughter of toilet paper tycoon Alan Murphy, which saw her dubbed the ‘loo roll heiress’.

David Beckham was best man when she and Dave – who now has two children with the actress Liv Tyler – exchanged vows in a lavish Cheshire ceremony in the summer of 2003, and Victoria Beckham was among the guests.
