Millie and Pro Green split in February.

Pro Green appeared on ITV's Loose Women on Thursday (14 July) to talk about his autobiography, Lucky, and was asked why he hadn't updated the paperback version to include a reference to his marriage breakdown.

The 32-year-old musician answered: "I think the best approach with any matter that personal is a dignified silence especially when there's another party involved."

"I never attempted to monetize my relationship," he continued, "and, forget what you read, it wasn't a celebrity relationship, it wasn't a celebrity marriage and it wasn't a celebrity divorce.

"We're two people. You have to consider people's feelings and we've had to deal with it and are still leaving with it so I just think the less said about it…"

He added: "So many people share every aspect of every part of their lives. It's weird because people feel now they want to know everything about everything but if they did, there wouldn't be any interest in anything anymore."

Millie, 26, is now back with ex-boyfriend Hugo Taylor, whom she originally dated in 2011.
