He also admitted that he was proud of how the couple had stayed the best of friends even though they were no longer in a romantic relationship.

'To be able to realise as a couple that we were going different ways and to stay as close as we are is a real testament, I think, to both of us,' he admitted candidly to The Daily Telegraph.

He also revealed that Emma, who is currently shooting the second series of her solo TV show, is recuperating from her endometriosis surgery saying she is, 'still really tired and just really concentrating on getting better'.

Emma and Lachy married in April 2016 with many fans believing they were an ideal match.
