NICK Knowles plans to wine and dine his younger ex Rebecca Kearns when he gets back to the UK after his stint in I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!
He exclusively told The Sun Online: “She’s a lot younger than me, but we got on and still get on really well, she lives and works in London and I’m in the country.
“We’re still in touch and I’ll take her for dinner when I’m back. We’re great friends.”
Nick, who grabbed jungle headlines when he refused to change out of his red budgie smugglers, isn’t bothered that Rebecca, 25, is closer in age to his sons Charlie, 24, and Tyrian-J, 24.
He added: “She’s a bit older than my kids, but they know I don’t pick people because of age.
“Rebecca is an intelligent independent woman making her way in the world, she’s a copywriter and a lovely person and great company.
“We stay great friends – it’s just I live in the countryside and she lives in London.”
The brunette is a marketing executive, who began dating Nick in November 2017.
They originally aimed to keep the romance quiet with Nick going through his divorce to wife, Jessica Moor.
In late January, the pair confirmed their romance with a trip to Hollywood together.
A friend of the telly presenter revealed: “Nick and Rebecca have been dating for about three months and it’s getting serious.”
The pal said Rebecca had met three-year-old Eddie — Nick’s son with Jessica “because they all agreed it was important to keep things civilised for his sake”.

In July, Nick reportedly split up with Rebecca after eight months together, claiming he didn’t want to date anymore.
Meanwhile, Nick said his three weeks in the jungle was full of bumps and scrapes, leaving him in discomfort.
Speaking exclusively to The Sun Online, he said: “I got a lot of minor injuries, cuts, bruises, bumps, I pinged the end of one of my fingers. I dislocated a knuckle on the end of my left little finger on the bridge travelling to the trials running your hands on the ropes.”
