The 'Second Hand Heart' singer has been super busy since winning the last series of X Factor, recording and writing tracks over in Los Angeles and working with Kelly Clarkson on his debut single.
Speaking on today's ITV's This Morning, Ben said: "It's difficult, particularly for [my partner Jessica], it's a learning curve. Being away from her that much we just try and keep in touch as much as we can.
"I was lucky enough to bring her out to LA for a week. I didn't get to see her that much but she wasn't bothered. She just sat around the pool and probably quite liked it! It's just about keeping in touch as much as you can."
Ben also spoke about those pictures of him enjoying a night out with X Factor host Caroline Flack earlier this month.
"They're very good camera angles they get on that!" he said. "You could be walking out with four people and they cut to you two. That was after the awards when we went out to celebrate Simon [Cowell] and everything he has done.We went out for a few drinks afterwards - not just us!"
Ben's debut album is out now.
