The Radio X DJ said: "I'm finding it very hard, to be honest. I've struggled. I've been on a few dates but I don't know what to say.

She recently said of their working relationship "We were proper mates. I laughed every day, we used to laugh to the point where I was going to wet myself. Then things happened and we've had fallouts along the way.

"There's are couple of reasons why ... when the show [The Big Breakfast] became successful and we were negotiating contracts I thought we were doing it as a team but his agent had other ideas and she got him more money, and there were all those arguments that happens with bands and presenters. I wanted us to be a team and it became apparent we were not a team anymore and we never got back on track.

"I do love him to bits I'm not saying anything untoward about him! I don't know his kids and we don't really know anything about each other anymore."
