Nick tends to keep his private life out of the spotlight. He has been married twice before, tying the knot with first wife Gillian in the 1990s.

He started dating second wife Jessica Knowles in 2009, and they were married in an intimate ceremony in Rome in September 2012. Together, they share one child, son Eddie, who was born in August 2014. Nick and Jessica announced they were separating in January 2016.

In October 2019, Nick spoke about his family as he opened up about his quieter life in the Cotswolds. "Home life is good," he told the Mirror. "I never talk or comment on my private life, but I am happy. I am living where I want to live in the world with a simpler life now.

"I absolutely love my time with all my kids," he added. "They have all got a great sense of humour – Eddie loves noticing the rainbow colours in a puddle, and it's nice for me to take the time to stop and look at it, too."
