He continued: "I married someone who was famous.

"There was really awful things said about me, about my family, but I feel like I survived it," he said. "And I'm here, surviving, doing my thing." JB, who split from Cheryl in 2015, concluded: "It's been two years – I feel like a different person. That was the old me."

He added: "Pregnancy is hard to deal with, it's that first pair of jeans you can't get into and she thinks she's massive, but she's lost everything."
