Candice Brown's husband Liam Macauley has said there was 'nobody else involved' in his split from the Bake Off star.
Candice Brown and Liam Macauley have split two years after tying the knot in September 2018, following a six-year romance.
Now, Liam has broken his silence on his split from the Great British Bake Off star, as well as her infamous goodbye kiss with Paul Hollywood.
Speaking to Mail Online, Liam said: "There is nobody else involved. We have just sadly decided it wasn't working."
He told the publication he struggled to adjust to his new life after Candice was thrust into the showbiz world following her appearance on The Great British Bake Off.
Liam also spoke out about the pictures taken of Paul Hollywood kissing Candice goodbye on the cheek back in 2017.
He said: "I'd not long asked Candice to marry me and I had to read reports that my new fiancée was seen kissing Hollywood and getting close to him.
"That was just a kiss on her cheek and there was nothing else to it. But we had only been engaged a few days. It was a lot to have to deal with."
Liam has now moved out of his flat he shares with Candice, which sits above a pub they both run.
The pair appear to still be on good terms, with Liam saying: "My wife is a lovely woman and a wonderful human being and I could never find anything detrimental to say about her."
He added: "I am not the famous one, no one is interested in me. I am a tree surgeon from Scotland and I make my own living."
