They immediately struck up a friendship, but Joe admitted he fancied the mum of two back then, but obviously the timing just wasn’t right.

The public caught wind of their budding romance when they were seen enjoying a weekend away together.

The love birds were spotted shaking off post Christmas stress at Champneys Henlow Health Spa in Bedfordshire.

Who has Joe Swash dated?

Joe dated Emma Sophocleous between 2005 and 2008, and the pair share a son named Harry together.

Joe and Emma were engaged, but after splitting things were left in the hands of the courts as a result of the pair sharing son Harry.

During a podcast interview, Joe explained: “We had to go to court and stuff like that. So in hindsight it's a great thing, but yeah, me and Hal, it's been a strange one for Hal, he's had to do a lot of adapting. I do feel quite sorry for Hal for what he's had to go through.
