Everyone seems to think I’m quite fussy

Gethin Jones

The 42-year-old has “never made a secret” of the fact he wants a family.

However he has said he is not “fussy” despite what those close to him might think.

Gethin went into details about what he is looking for during his joint chat with Morning Live co-host Kym Marsh.

When asked if he wants to meet someone, the small screen star confirmed he does.

“Kym and I have talked a lot and she knows that one day I’d love to have a family and children,” he stated.

“I’ve never made a secret of that. But Miss Right has never come along.”

“Am I happy being single?” Gethin continued. “Well, right now that’s where I find myself.

“You have to make the most of it. But of course I’d love to meet someone.”

While speaking to OK! Magazine, he said a sense of humour is vital.

He went on: “Everyone seems to think I’m quite fussy but, for me, it’s about being able to have a laugh with someone.

“Of course, fancying somone is important, but as you get older it’s about friendship.”

Gethin became romantically involved with mezzo-soprano Katherine, 40, in December 2007.

It is thought they met on an episode of Strictly, when she sang with Italian opera singer Andrea Bocelli.

The former couple confirmed they engagement in February 2011, but in December of that year they went their separate ways.

Speaking candidly in her 2014 documentary, the blonde beauty said: “When Gethin and I broke up, the reality of it was that, about two weeks later, I had to go on a UK tour where every night I’m singing songs of heartbreak.

“And every day just trying to find the energy to cope – let alone going on stage and understand his reason for doing it.”

She added: “Everybody else is under the impression it was my decision, my ambition – I wanted to take over the world. It was so far from the truth.”

Katherine is now married to American artist, professor and film actor-director, Andrew Levitas, 43.

They wed at Hampton Court Palace six years ago and are parents to Aaliyah, five, and two-year-old Xander.

Strictly Come Dancing spin-off It Takes Two continues tonight at 6.30pm on BBC Two.
