Chris Hughes has spoken about his split from Little Mix’s Jesy Nelson for the first time.
He said: "I don’t think I’ve ever felt heartbroken or anything.
“And then a couple of weeks down the line, you start thinking about it less and less. And the next thing, you’re good as gold."
The reality star said talking to people, including his manager, who was going through a break-up at the same time, was what helped get him through it.
He added: "It’s good to talk to people like that, you’re the same as well, life experience.
"People get it and it reflects on you and next minute you feel right as rain."
A source told a tabloid at the time: "Jesy and Chris split up a couple of weeks ago. It was all very amicable and they're still really good friends.
"Jesy rang Chris and led the conversation about their relationship and both agreed that it felt like it had run its course - they're both absolutely fine."
