Here’s a look back at Joe’s relationship history…

Emma Sophocleous

Emma and Joe dated between 2005 and 2008, before going their separate ways.

The pair share their son Harry together, who was born five months before Joe and Emma split.

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.

On the podcast, 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.
