In January 2018, Fred revealed he had begun dating his now fiancée with a post on his Instagram page.

‘It’s nice to have a relaxing conversation and chill out when you’ve had a long day. If I do get the chance to be in the kitchen, I love making fresh pasta. I find rolling it out very therapeutic and I get flour everywhere; it’s great fun.

‘In the evenings I like nothing more than sitting down with a beer and watching something on Netflix.’

This will be Fred’s first marriage as he revealed in 2016 that he has never been wed, admitting his longest relationship was with his ex Alex for 12 years. 

The former couple share two children, Andrea, 15, and Lucien, 10.   

Glam: Fred always refers to his other half as ‘fruitcake’ on his social media pages

After finding his own happily ever after, Fred is set to launch a new dating show on E4 called Teen First Dates, following the succcess of the original show.

The show will feature gay, straight, bi and trans teenagers who are on the hunt for their other half.

It was revealed by the Sun earlier this month that the production team want all sexualities and body types to feature on their new show. 

A source said: ‘While Love Island was criticised for casting slim, good-looking singletons, Teen First Dates will give everyone the chance to find love — regardless of shape, size and sexuality.

‘As the contestants are more inexperienced, crew are keen to be gentle with them and are expecting a lot of nerves, especially as some won’t have been on a date before.’
