Winslet Ex's Marriage Delight

KATE WINSLET's first husband JIM THREAPLETON is far from bitter his ex has remarried - in fact he's "delighted" she's exchanged wedding vows with her movie-maker beau SAM MENDES.

Assistant director Jim, who is the father of Kate's two-year-old daughter MIA, received a phonecall from the A-list actress as soon as the happy couple returned from the Caribbean island of Anguilla - where the ceremony was held - last month (MAY03).

He says, "It's great to see her as happy as she is at the moment. I wish them both every success.

"I've known about it for a few days. Kate rang and told me that she had tied the knot when she returned. It wasn't a surprise when I read it in the papers."

Threapleton and Winslet married in 1998 but split after Mia's birth, finally getting divorced in 2001.
