He told the presenting duo: "I've always been a big fan of winter sports whether it's skiing, skating, snowboarding, après skiing, and I felt this has been a very unusual time.

"With a show like this, you really have to dedicate a lot of time, and theatre — unfortunately — is not seeing audiences, film is not really happening, but television is what people go to and I felt like why not?”

Their romance began while playing onscreen sweethearts Scott and Charlene in Neighbours.

The pair then went on to record chart topper Especially For You in 1988, but they went their separate ways in 1989 after three years together.

Jason has since told The Mirror: “It was an extremely painful parting of the ways and, without doubt, I took a long time to recover from it.”

Does Jason Donovan have children?

Jason is a dad to three children, all of which he shares with wife Angela.

His eldest, Jemma is 20 years old, and he also has a 19 year old son named Zac, and nine year old daughter named Molly.

Jason often shares snaps with his children with his 84,000 Instagram followers.
