“It was impossible to continue, so what you going to do – that’s life. It’s a pity. We got on great, but even when we were together, we’d have a major visa drama and her visa was rejected once to go to the States. It was just a major hassle in every way.
“I still keep in touch with her, there’s just nothing we could do. I’m free and single at the moment,” he added.
