In a recent interview, Joe had hinted that he was in a new relationship when he revealed Frances moved in with him during the first Covid lockdown.

He told Liverpool’s Silver Magazine: ‘Well there’s Mum and me, and Minnie the dachshund, and there’s also the amazing Frances…

‘You see, before the plague descended, I had met and fallen for Frances, and we were in the very early days of a new – and in both our cases – entirely unexpected love affair.

‘Frances has one of her sons living at her house, and after discussion we decided that, if we were to see each other at all, and with other considerations, it would be best if she – and her son – isolated with me. What could possibly go wrong?

‘In truth, what some friends were calling a baptism of fire has been – pretty much – one long and enjoyable episode of Bake Off/Masterchef, with honours going mostly to Frances.’ 

Frances herself made headlines in 2020 after winning an eight-year battle with the government to ban old tyres on the road, after her son Michael, 18, was tragically killed in a 2012 crash while travelling home from a music festival. 

Joe starred in Hollyoaks in 2019 and 2020 before his character Edward was dramatically killed off after impregnating his son Tony’s wife Diane.

The actor also starred in controversial ITV series Night and Day, and most recently appeared in ITV’s Vera.
