Gemma Oaten's Nick Knowles fling put her off dating

ICONINSIDER — Gemma Oaten’s fling with Nick Knowles has put her off dating.
The 32-year-old former ‘Emmerdale’ actress revealed her brief relationship with the ‘DIY SOS’ host – which ended when he reportedly dumped her to reconcile with his estranged wife – left her feeling “burned.
She told the Daily Star Sunday: “It was weird. It was very eggy and it did put me off dating.
“I’ve been a little bit burned and now is the time for me to be a little bit selfish and look after me.
“It’s not been easy. I saw him at the National Television Awards and you could cut the atmosphere with a knife.
“But I’m OK now. And if he’s all right that’s brilliant. I genuinely don’t wish him any ill will.
“I actually wish I could see him and talk to him about it. But that will never happen.”
Nick, 54, previously defended himself after he came under fire for how the fling ended, by saying they dated for “less than a week” during a “turbulent, traumatic” time in his life when he was estranged from Jessica Moor, the mother of his young son.
Taking to his Twitter account, after Gemma lashed out at him in a newspaper interview, he said: “Life is not about what happens to you, it’s about how you deal with it. This year we faced a miscarriage, the break down of our marriage and cancer without being disrespectful about each other at any point. We are saddened for each other and for the sake of our young son that this is being played out so publicly.
“The story in today’s paper is something that happened (in the space of less than one week) during a turbulent, traumatic time and more to the point – whilst we were separated. It is unfortunate we are having to relive it purely so someone can financially gain from exploiting our private life.
“With everything that’s happened this year, even discussing this seems very trivial in comparison to what we have dealt with and are still dealing with. As always, our answer is united, as we are. We have enjoyed eight years as best friends and nothing will change that. (sic)”
