I take her on a romantic weekend to Paris or somewhere and then say I’d only gone so I could get the duty-free, I don’t know why I do it – I suppose it’s in case any of my mates are listening, or something.” Fortunately for Nick, Shari, a promotions executive, understands him and wouldn’t change him for the world.

The TV star went on to admit to having a hard time talking to women when he was single. “I couldn’t spot a come-on from a girl if it hit me in the face,” he says. “My best technique at parties was to go and stand as far away as possible from the girl I fancied and then get blind drunk. Other blokes would stand as near as they could, but I’d hide behind a curtain.”

If I fancied a girl, she’d have to come up, say: ‘I fancy you’, put it in writing, and then follow up with a fax of confirmation. I wasn’t successful when I was single. To be honest I was hopeless. Being single is s**t anyway. I’ve been in relationships of one sort or another most of my life. I think they call it being a serial monogamist.“- Nick Hancock told The Mirror.
