Brian moved to Rochdale to be with Danielle shortly after they started dating.

Earlier this year, Brian said he wasn't ready to get married again but did admitted he was feeling broody.

He told Closer magazine: "I don't want to get married now, not right this second. But I don't know, we'll see. Maybe in the future.

"I'd love more kids. I love my two girls, but I'd love to have small kids again now.

"My sister has just had a baby, and I'm absolutely obsessed with her daughter. I'm feeling broody."

Danielle's down to earth lifestyle couldn't be more different than Brian's previous high profile relationships.

He married Kerry in January 2002 in Rathfeigh, County Meath and had two daughters Molly-Marie, 15, and Lilly-Sue, 13 before their divorce was finalised in December 2006.

He then started dating Australian singer and actress Delta Goodrem, but after several years they released a joint statement announcing that they had broken up.

They married in Florence, later that year but in July last year he announced on Twitter that he and Vogue were no longer a couple and that they would separate.

Vogue has since remarried to Spencer Matthews, while Kerry is currently single after two further marriages to George Kay and Mark Croft.
