Gethin Jones has spoken out following the break up of his relationship with ex-fiancé Katherine Jenkins.
The Welsh presenter, 34, said that he is 'doing OK' since the couple broke off their engagement in December after four years together.
"A break-up is always hard... We've both had a really hard time and we're both heartbroken, but I'm doing OK even though it's hard," the Daybreak star said.
The former Blue Peter presenter, who is an ambassador for Sky Ride Local, said he was "determined to protect" Welsh opera star Katherine's "privacy and our privacy together", adding: "I always was and that continues now.
"All I can say is the support we had during our relationship and after has been amazing and I'm really grateful for that," he said.
Singer Katherine, who broke down during her first performance after the heartbreaking split, recently laughed off reports that she was dating her Dancing With The Stars professional partner Mark Ballas. She has since been linked with dancer Derek Hough.
