She explained: “I’ve said this before, we didn’t break up because anything bad happened or because there wasn’t love or friendship.

“I love him and the friendship is still strong and I think he’s great and I care about him.

“And that didn’t change. Yes, we’re professional and that’s fine. We were friends long before we dated and we still are now.”

As for Ian and Nikki’s whirlwind marriage, she revealed: “When I heard about the wedding, I thought it was beautiful.

“They look happy and I am happy, and so I don’t see why there should be a problem with that. The drama is in the media, it’s not with us… I just ignore it.”
