But this time, the news has to do with something completely different, Ian has been spotted on a dating site.

The former journalist revealed he and Jules Thomas decided to end their 30 year relationship and while Ian is saying he is heartbroken still, it hasn't stopped him from continuing his search for love.

Calling himself Ian Kenneth Bailey on the site, he says that he's got master's degree from University College Cork, and according to Extra.ie, Ian is paying for access to the site and has contacted women already asking to meet them.

There are also apparently four pictures on the profile, three of them showing Ian with a hat on so his face is slightly covered.

When asked about this new profile, Ian told Extra: "I don’t know, is that me? I have taken to social media over the past few weeks, having been a social media virgin previously. There’s some very strange stuff happening on there, very weird stuff is going on.

"I have to go now, I can’t talk, I’m meeting someone. The number one priority for me at the moment is finding a home. I’m working on that today and tomorrow in fact."

Ian confirmed that his had ended his relationship with Jules earlier this year, which she later admitted that she had had enough of him.

Jules revealed that while Ian was in Ireland, she couldn't leave to see her children and grandchildren, and they refused to visit her in Ireland as they didn't want to meet him.

Ian has been spotted around Skibbereen with a mystery woman, but he says she is a journalist from the UK conducting a story on him.
