“We went out a couple of times. She is amazing,” he told The Sun. “We have known each other for years, just running in the same circles.” When asked if he’d met Lily’s famous father Nick added: “ I didn’t meet him. I am a huge fan.

Speaking about his single life Nick continued: “I’ve enjoyed meeting different people and spending time with people with all the cards on the table. All people need human interaction at some level. And at my age too, dating is important, getting to know yourself by meeting different people, seeing what it’s all about.”

One person he’s been continually linked to is actress Kate Hudson, but he’s still keeping quiet on what really went on between them. “Kate is amazing, she is a great person,” he said. “You spend five minutes with her and understand who she is and what she’s about.

“She has a beautiful spirit. She is lovely. It has been a year of truly being single but meeting great people and being respectful of them.” But one lady who things didn't work out with was pop superstar Rihanna.
