On Tuesday, he took to Instagram to pay an emotional tribute to his wife Zoe Hobbs, who he married back in 2010. Sharing a beautiful string of photos of his beloved, the former Strictly Come Dancing professional gushed: "I miss this incredible human! I miss my person… @thezoec I'm counting the days."

In one beachside photo, the pair looked like they could've been in Baywatch as they sunned on the beach, with Zoe looking magnificent in a black bikini.

Brendan's tribute sparked an outpouring of love from his followers, including his former Strictly co-star Karen Hauer, who wrote: "Gorgeous girl."

Another said: "Beautiful the model filmstar couple," while a third posted: "Beautiful girl. So pleased you both found each other."

And at Tuesday's ITV Palooza, he opened about his training, as he told HELLO!: "It's really quite dangerous. We drop all the time and fall and you really hurt yourself, however the better you get and the more Vanessa's working with me and hopefully she'll turn me into a really great skater."

Zoe is currently back at the couple's Mallorca home

Brendan and Zoe live out in Mallorca, which is where Zoe currently is, and earlier this year the couple thrilled fans as they welcomed a surprise new member of their family – a duck.

"When your new [duck] matches your outfit! #ducksofinstagram #addictedtoducks #permaculture #sustainableliving #mallorcalifestyle #cappuccinoduck," Zoe captioned an adorable photo featuring the bird, which was later regrammed by the former BBC dancer.

Their new arrival came shortly after they welcomed some "chickens and piggies" to their family, much to the delight of their children, Aurelia and Dante.
