Fred tends to be private about his love-life, but he recently opened up about his now-fiancé to Fabulous magazine.
He said: "Occasionally, I’ll go for a little wine and some tapas after work with my partner, who I like to call 'fruitcake'.
"It’s nice to have a relaxing conversation and chill out when you’ve had a long day. If I do get the chance to be in the kitchen, I love making fresh pasta. I find rolling it out very therapeutic and I get flour everywhere; it’s great fun.
"In the evenings I like nothing more than sitting down with a beer and watching something on Netflix."
