Declan Donnelly has gushed about the love in his life for the first time - and we're not talking about Ant McPartlin.

The 'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!' presenter confirmed he's in a happy relationship with his former manager and longtime friend Ali Astall.

“It's going good. Everything’s hunky-dory. It was a little strange because we’ve had a working relationship for so long. But because it just happened there was no big ta-da,” Dec told The Sun.

The Geordie star is said to have grown close to Ali after ten years of working together, and the couple have enjoyed months of secret dates.

It's Dec's first relationship since splitting with Sky Sports presenter Georgie Thompson in 2011.

He previously dated '2point4 Children' star Claire Buckfield for 11 years, before they split in 2003.

He was also linked to 'I'm A Celeb' contestant and former Pussycat Doll Ashley Roberts earlier this year.

Confirming the rumours back in March, Ashley told The Mirror: "We're trying to keep it out of the public eye. We're just getting to know each other. We're having fun, but I'm single."
