It comes after My Mum, Your Dad star Roger admitted going on the show after his wife’s death ‘split opinion in his family down the middle’. 

The postman appeared on Monday’s Good Morning Britain with his new love Janey Smith who he met on the show to discuss his journey. 

During a chat on GMB he said that both he and his loved ones initially shared concerns he was ‘not ready’ for romance. 

On the show he confirmed to hosts Susanna Reid and Richard Madeley he had the same apprehension, saying: ‘Me as well yeah.’

He told them his stint on the show ‘was a debate in the family as well’ and added: ‘It split them down the middle. 

‘But I said ‘if I had the once in a lifetime chance I am going to take it’.’

Richard then asked if the show had been a ‘journey of discovery’ for the star.

Roger again agreed and confessed: ‘I did think to myself if I met someone, I thought I would fall hard. And I did, very hard.’

Elsewhere entertainment editor Richard Arnold asked what the future held after the couple ‘fast-tracked’ their courtship.

Roger said: ‘She lives on the other side of the country to me, but it’s not an issue, I just get in my car and I smile all the way down.

‘I get on at the M25 and there’s traffic on the other side, but I just sit there smiling at them and say I’m going to meet Janey.’

As Janey then added: ‘We’ve seen each other every weekend since the show, we’ve not missed a chance and we’ll just continue to do the same but a little bit more.’

How would you describe yourself in a few words? Fun, loving, conscientious, struggling to get old – I don’t want to get old. I lost my wife, I know that you can get up and life can be over in a split second.

Why did your daughter Jess nominate you for MMYD? She’s a lovely girl. Her mum was really thoughtful in everything – she could plan things to a detail – and Jess has got that. She is so thoughtful and it was just a lovely thing for her to say, ‘Dad, look, we understand that you’re struggling and it’s been hard and we know that you’ve got a lot of love to give and we’re OK if you were to see someone else’.

Following my wife passing 18 months ago, I didn’t really want to meet anyone. You don’t expect it to be you and you don’t expect it to be your wife. But I’m going on the show to get some confidence. I must have subconsciously wanted to meet someone by saying yes to the show.

Name: Taiya

Age: 21

Location: North London

Location: Sunderland

Profession: Social media influencer 

Why did you nominate your mum to go on the show? I feel like it’s finally her time to be happy. I think she’s put herself on the backburner to bring up myself and my sister. In the last few years I feel like she’s given up on love, so she didn’t want to try anymore. I hope putting her forward will be the push she needs to put herself first.

Name: Mazey

Name: Jess

Age: 28

Location: Derbyshire

Profession: Network rail planner 

Why did you nominate your dad to go on the show? It was a joint thing with my brother and sister and it was our way of basically telling him that we were happy for him to start dating, if that was something he wanted to do. 

It was a cop out on our part really, as it meant we didn’t need to sit down and actually say it. It was a sneaky way of saying, ‘Oh look at this, do you want to look into this?’ Never actually expected anything to come of it.

It was about putting dad first. We’d never really thought about us, or about ourselves in that situation. I wasn’t thinking about how I’d react, I was thinking about him.

The reason for that is he does the same for us, he would always put family first. So it was just a way of saying to him, stop worrying about us. If he wasn’t ready, that was also totally fine. It wasn’t an ultimatum. It was just, if you want to, you can, don’t worry about us.

 

Name: Zachary

Age: 21

Location: Essex

Profession: University student 

Why did you nominate your dad to go on the show? He deserves a chance to be happy and he hasn’t had that. I want him to have what a lot of his friends have done; get married and settle down. He deserves the opportunity to find the ‘end stages’ of love.

 

Name: Will

Age: 19

Location: West Sussex

Profession: Student

Why did you nominate your mum to go on the show? It’s getting a bit desperate now! We need a good chance of getting her to find someone. 

If it takes me to get involved, then that’s apparently how dire things have got! 

 

Name: Jessica

Age: 23

From: Epsom

Profession: Model/ Sales & Marketing/ Mental Health Skills Coaching

Why did you nominate your dad to go on the show? I want him to get out there a bit. He’s been focussed on us kids and his work and not even really thought about the possibility of meeting someone new that he could date or have a relationship with. 

He deserves that and to have someone to do nice things with and have an emotional connection with outside of his kids.

 

 

Name: Georgia-Blu

Age: 28

Location: London 

Profession: Chartered Accountant

Why did you nominate your mum to go on the show? I think my mum is such a good catch. Growing up, I’ve never really seen her in a really long settled relationship and that’s something I’ve always wanted for her. 

I nominated her so she would get a chance to meet someone who she can settle down with, she really deserves it.

 

Name: Luke

Age: 18

If you were writing your dad’s dating bio and had to summarise him in a few sentences, how would you describe him? Loving, caring, busy, loves the attention, loves to go out and do stuff. He loves Ibiza! He loves meeting new people. 

He’s always interested in you and if there’s a connection there, always has lots of questions. He loves to explore and go on holiday. He gets very emotionally attached.
