Jessica Knowles has opened up about her relationship with estranged husband Nick Knowles, revealing that the pair are "getting to know each other again" after they initially announced their decision to split back in January.

The 28-year-old, who recently beat cancer after being diagnosed with the disease back in July, told the Mirror: "Yes, Nick and I are dating now. We are taking it slowly. We are getting to know each other again. In a way it feels like entering a new relationship.

Jessica spoke about her relationship with husband Nick

"It is super-exciting. It is butterflies feelings, but with the added security of someone who has always been there for you."

Jessica spoke about why the couple decide to part ways at the beginning of the year, and that the DIY SOS presenter wanted to work on their marriage after her devastating cancer diagnosis in July.

"When we separated, we made a decision that was best for us at the time. It wasn't a lack of love or respect," she revealed. "Nick made it clear at that time that he wanted to be a family, back together. But I didn't want to. To try and rebuild a marriage and relationship while dealing with cancer was too much."

Nick spoke about the couple's son, Eddie

Nick also spoke about their relationship during an appearance on Lorraine on Tuesday, saying: "We're working on our relationship. Our essential point has to be our son Eddie… he's a real joy and makes me smile every day.

"We're not going to work out our relationship in the public eye, but we remain the best of friends and things are going well together. And we are first and foremost parents to Eddie who we love very much."
