“He is really wise, he gives me relationship advice.”

The presenter went on to say: “He is really good like that, so watch this space,” she continued.

Zoe separated from Michael Reed in November last year, which was her first relationship since Billy Yates, who took his own life in 2017.

However, the pair rekindled earlier this year as she paid tribute to him on his 50th birthday, back in May.

She wrote on Instagram: “Happy birthday to my curly sue.

“Not quite the birthday celebrations we had planned but we will make it special.

Zoe went on to say: “Thank you for loving me through the uppy ups and the downy downs.

“Your girls, your family, friends & my lil crew adore you. Let’s go anywhere #1970 #fitatfifty.”

Today, Zoe and Michael put on a united front as they paid tribute to Dame Vera Lynn ahead of her funeral.

The radio DJ was married to Norman from 1999 until September 2016.
