These past six months since filming have been a very unique experience. Chels and I have made some beautiful memories together that I’ll always cherish, and I wish her nothing but the absolute best. However, it’s with a heavy heart that I write this. For Chels and me, our relationship hasn’t translated from filming to the real, every day world as we had hoped. Chels is a very special woman and I want her to find the happiness she deserves. For those who may wonder if there’s someone else for me right now, there absolutely is not. It’s no one’s fault, it’s just life.
Now, the astrophysicist has given an interview to comedian Rosie Waterland on her podcast Just The Gist, admitting he was devastated after it all fell apart.
“That’s life and that’s dating, and relationships sometimes they don’t work out but it’s an experience,” he said.
“You do try and find whatever positive things you can find from it [and] the experience certainly helped me grow as a person.”
As for announcing their news to the public, the 32-year-old admits it caused him a lot of anxiety.
