They separated in 2016 but Nick supported Jessica through her cervical cancer battle, with the pair giving their marriage another go after her recovery.

Unfortunately, it wasn't meant to be and they divorced amicably in December 2016.

Nick was in a new relationship with 26-year-old Emily Hallinan until early this year, with the two splitting just before lockdown.

"I feel in a better place now than I have done for probably 20 years, just spending some time getting to know yourself before re-entering the fray…"
