Despite finding fame on a dating show, Fred is not one to shout from the rooftops about his own love life.

He confirmed in 2018 he was in a new relationship but gave his new lady the nickname ‘Fruitcake’.

Fruitcake’s real name is still being kept under wraps and it is not known what she does for a living.

Her Instagram page reads: “Obsessed with shoes, clothes & handbags. Travel fanatic. I eat/drink anything. I love travel.”

Fred and Fruitcake got engaged in 2020 and were due to tie the knot last year.

However, their plans were put on hold due to the coronavirus pandemic.

‘It’s going to be surreal’

Just weeks before the new series of Celebrity Gogglebox kicked off, it was confirmed Fred and Fruitcake would be appearing on the C4 show.

I feel sad for Fred and Fruitcake that they are wedged onto such a small sofa.

Excited Fred told The Sun: “It’s going to be very surreal being on the show having been critiqued a number of times in the regular series!

“I am looking forward to the public getting to meet the wonderful Fruitcake too.”

“Look so uncomfortable.”

Another chimed in: “I feel sad for Fred and Fruitcake that they are wedged onto such a small sofa – they look so uncomfortable!”
