He said: “She’s the coolest person in the world. We were close friends before we were in a relationship.

“We used to sit in front of the TV on a Wednesday night and she said, ‘Wait a minute, if you want to be a big artist one day, you should definitely be playing songs in a pub or a club now’.

“She drummed that into me, and I got out and did it. I wouldn’t be here without her.”

The Hold Back The River hitmaker has always been a “private person” but said his latest album Leap came from a place of pure “joy and positivity” after becoming a father.

He said: “I had never written from this perspective before. I had never written from a place of joy and positivity. Lucy and I first started dating when we were 16 and have been together ever since. She has supported me since day one.

He added: “From open mic nights to my biggest shows. It’s been one adventure after another, but now we’re on to the greatest of them all. Raising our beautiful daughter Ada.’
