Gavin Rossdale has confessed that he will "always love" his ex-wife Gwen Stefani. The couple's divorce was finalised almost a year ago, but Gavin, who has three sons with the No Doubt singer, said that he will always love her. The judge of The Voice UK went on to call Gwen his "muse", saying that despite their split, he is still inspired by her. His band's new song Mad Love is dedicated to Gwen.

The Bush guitarist and lead singer has been acting as a judge on The Voice UK, alongside Sir Tom Jones, Jennifer Hudson and will.i.am. This weekend will see the quarter finals, with each coach putting forward their final three acts. Of his time on the show, Gavin said: "I love Tom Jones – sitting next to him on The Voice, I can't call it work. My support network are my friends, my family and of course my children. Having my children as a focus has saved me."
Gavin is also the father to model Daisy Lowe, 28, whose mother is Pearl Lowe. The father-daughter duo have been pictured out and about in London, catching up and making the most of Gavin's time in the UK. However the Englishman said that he won't be able to stay on home soil for long; Gwen and his children are based in the US. "I have four children, Daisy who is here and doing her own thing," he said. "But I also have three young children and wherever they are I am compelled to be, they need me like tea needs milk."

Gavin and Daisy: how they overcame their broken bond
Gavin, 51, and his ex-wife Gwen, 47, met in 1995 when both their groups - Bush and No Doubt - were on tour. After seven years of dating, they tied the knot in 2002 with a wedding in St Paul's, London and a second celebration was held in Los Angeles two weeks later. The stars went on to have sons Kingston, ten, Zuma, eight and Apollo, three, before Gwen filed for divorce.
