Who is Zoe Ball’s boyfriend?

Zoe Ball is currently in a relationship with boyfriend Michael Reed.

The couple started dating in December 2017 – around a year after her former partner Billy Yates tragically took his own life.

While their romance seemed solid, by November 2019, cracks started to appear and they split up.

A source told The Sun at the time: “Zoe knew deep down the relationship wasn’t going anywhere. She enjoyed her time with Michael but came to the conclusion he wasn’t a keeper, despite him believing they were getting serious.

“There were certain things she grew uncomfortable with, such as him wanting to become a model and actor. Her close circle feared he was using her to enhance his own career.”

However, the pair were spotted together earlier this year, sparking reconciliation rumours.

Last month, Zoe  confirmed that the relationship was back by sharing a photo of them together on social media,

“We are still great friends and will continue to support each other and raise our beautiful children together, living next door but one.”
