Donnelly called time on their two-year relationship in 2011, with Georgie speaking out on the ‘tough’ breakup shortly after. ‘At the moment, the party line is that we’re really good friends and really support each other.

‘But it’s been tough, it’s really tough. It’s a really hard thing to live out a painful break-up when you’re in the public eye. It hurts but we have to be grown-up.’ Friends added at the time that Dec was reluctant to settle down , claiming: ‘Dec didn’t feel ready for marriage and babies.’

The two both got their happy ending though as Georgie married British sailor Sir Ben in 2014, with their daughter Bellatrix born on 16 July 2016.

Admitting they had long fancied one another, but feared ruining their professional relationship, he divulged at the start of their relationship: ‘I think we’ve always been attracted to each other but it has always been that thing of we work together.

‘This is the first time we’ve given it a try. We always hung out. When she was single and I was single we’d go out for dinner on Valentine’s night together because we didn’t have partners.’
