The star previously appeared on Grande Fratello back in 2010, which is the Italian version of the reality TV show Big Brother.

He finished in fourth place and became a bit of a celebrity before he went on to have a short lived pop career.

After releasing three singles between 2012 and 2013, he swiftly gave up his career in music.

He has also previously worked as a model, with pictures seeing him on stage at a variety of wedding shows, as well as starring in a Tom Jones music video 23 years ago.

Jimmy Barba’s net worth

It is not clear how much Jimmy Barba is worth, but as a property developer, we’re sure he’s not short of money.

The average salary for a Property Developer in the UK is around £45,196.

The new relationship comes after Denise's split from her fiancé Eddie Boxshall at the start of the year.

At the time, reports circulated that Eddie had been messaging another woman, and Denise also told OK! magazine that she had ‘too much self respect’ to stay in the relationship.
