His appearance comes after his ex-wife Zoe Ball thanked her fans for their support, after the tragic death of her partner Billy Yates earlier this month.
She took to Twitter last week to re-tweet a message from her management company last week, which read: ‘On behalf of Zoe Ball, we would like to thank everyone for the kind messages and support during a very difficult time.’
The Strictly It Takes Two Presenter, 46, also responded to a fan who wrote that she ‘must be sad, bewildered and wondering what the point is’, following the sudden death of her boyfriend.

Zoe replied: ‘Pretty much spot on. Thank you for your kindness. Means so very much. Love xxx.’
Billy, 40, was found hanged at his flat in Putney, south west London, on May 4, after Zoe reportedly became concerned that he was not responding to her calls.
Zoe had met the Antiques Roadshow cameraman through mutual friends at the BBC, with her father Johnny previously describing how Billy had given his daughter a ‘new lease of life’ following the breakdown of her marriage.
