Zoe Ball says son Woody ‘gives her dating advice after difficult few years’

Zoe Ball has revealed that she is receiving relationship advice from her 18-year-old son Woody after a 'difficult few years'.

The 49-year-old BBC Radio 2 Breakfast Show presenter split from construction boss Michael Reed in November, which was her first relationship since the suicide of boyfriend Billy Yates in 2017.

Speaking to The Sun at the Audio & Radio Industry Awards on Wednesday night, she admitted that she is "happy" being single at the moment, though son Woody is on hand to try and help her find a man.

Zoe said: "I would always do anything with him. He is really wise, he gives me relationship advice."

As for diving into another relationship, Zoe kept it coy by saying: "Watch this space."
