The pair were living together in Alex’s £1.6 million London apartment after they went Instagram official last June when they headed off to Cornwall for a romantic holiday. 

A source close to the couple told MailOnline Ellie had been a pillar of support to Alex as he continues to mourn the devastating loss of his brother Llŷr, who tragically took his own life aged 19 last July. 

‘Alex and Ellie have been dating for six months now, and it’s beginning to get serious between them,’ an insider revealed at the time.  

Alex has had a difficult year, with the passing of his brother, and working nonstop on the frontline. His family are so pleased to see him happy in a new relationship.’

He went on to carve a career as a TV doctor and spoke last week on Lorraine about ‘fat shaming’ trolls and his mental health.    

‘Sadly, it’s not even just me, it’s people being shamed for how they look and a lot of people have said to me they feel uncomfortable going to the gym because people might judge them – movement is for everyone,’ he told host Lorraine, 62.

‘It’s about how you feel – your health, your happiness, it’s not about having a six pack. 

‘I don’t care that I don’t have a six pack quite frankly and I don’t think other young people should either.’

Commenting on the suggestion that he shouldn’t be practising medicine due to past mental health issues, Dr Alex, who has spoken openly about taking anxiety medication, said: ‘It’s not the first time I’ve had it to be honest. “If you’ve got mental health issues, should you be looking after…. Shouldn’t the medical council stop you”.’

He continued: ‘If you have an understanding of what it’s like to suffer or need help, I think you can relate to that person.

‘Most of the time it’s about what you can’t see and that is why having an understanding and true empathy I think is so important. 

‘I’ve got no shame, and if people want to say that about me then fine. But I’m not going to stop and I don’t think I’m a worse doctor for it.’
