They have two children together - Libby, 17, and Zach, 13 - but split in 2016 amid cheating claims. 

Meanwhile, Max and Stacey revealed they were together back in April 2019.

They met at the John Gilbert pub, in Worsley back in 2018 after being introduced by mutual pals.

Speaking to The Sun about their relationship, Max said: “I’ve always said I’ve wanted kids but never committed to it in my own head but I think Stacey’s the one.

“We would love to add to the family at some point, that would be amazing. Obviously there are no guarantees but I’m sure we both feel the same way.”

Hinting there could be wedding bells soon, he added: “She’d have to say yes first, we seem to be getting on all right.

“It’s the strongest relationship I’ve ever had and every day gets more exciting.

“We’re really close; we were close from day one. With me moving in with Stacey — because that was her family home — and the kids, you become such a tight unit. We are getting closer every day.”

Max was previously engaged to Michelle Keegan after the pair met in 2010, but they revealed their split in 2012.
