Gethin Jones on his 'hard' break-up

Gethin Jones says he's "doing OK" following his split with Katherine Jenkins.

The couple broke off their engagement in December after four years together.

"A break-up is always hard... We've both had a really hard time and we're both heartbroken, but I'm doing OK even though it's hard," the Daybreak presenter said.

The former Blue Peter star, who is an ambassador for Sky Ride Local, said he was "determined to protect" Welsh opera star Katherine's "privacy and our privacy together", adding: "I always was and that continues now.

"All I can say is the support we had during our relationship and after has been amazing and I'm really grateful for that," he said.

Katherine recently laughed off reports that she was dating her Dancing With The Stars professional partner Mark Ballas. She has since been linked with dancer Derek Hough.
