Nick Knowles' former wife Jessica Rose is said to be on the look out for a man her age
The 28-year-old, who is 26 years younger than her former spouse, is said to have left the family home after finding "evidence" he'd been in touch with other women, the Daily Star claimed.
The pair wed back in 2012 and have one son, Edwin, together, and first announced they were separating in January last year.
Jessica has since reportedly told a friend: "Some days he acted more like my dad than my husband. It’s goodbye Mr Wrinkly and hello tight, firm abs.
"I am looking for someone closer to my age. Tall dark and handsome only need apply and hot bodies – Nick wasn’t in the best shape."
