Who Is Greg James Dating?

Greg was always popular as he used to work on BBC. However, he gained massive popularity after he had been known to be dating Ellie Goulding, a famous singer.

The host, who is also an author, had the details of his relationship followed thoroughly throughout the span of his relationship.

However, his relationship with the famous singer did not last for long, and they separated after 18 months of dating back to 2012.

It was reported that the ex-pair were having difficulties managing time for each other and things were not good between the two for a while. As a result, the all-so-in love partners officially called it quits, but the two are still friends and on good terms. 

How do we know, you may ask? Well, even after a decade of their breakup, the ex boyfriend-girlfriend still follows each other on Instagram [As of 2021].

But the limelight did not leave his sight. Being in a relationship with an A-list celebrity did not come easy for the 35-year-old.

After the breakup, people became even more curious about who the lucky girl is but he kept his relationship on a low profile for a while.

The English men's low profile relationship status soon turned out to birth a new rumor altogether.

People began speculating if the radio host was gay after he claimed that he would feel comfortable in women's clothing, but this was nothing but a joke, and to clear the air, the 35-year-old is not gay.

Despite keeping a low profile for a while, James, age 35, could not stop himself from letting people know about his new beau. 

During the release of his radio show with the BBC, he took to Instagram to tell people how his newly engaged life might have been affected by his new job. And there it was: his dating life was public once again. 

Although the rumors of his engagement had been out since February 2020, he made tabloids wait four months and finally came out with a confirmation himself. 

While posting a beautiful picture with his newly engaged fiance, Bella Mackie, who is a writer and a freelance journalist, who he had wrapped around his hands, he wrote,

One of the main reasons for this happiness is because I met this person. This is Bella and in February she asked me to marry her. I said yes immediately because she is the smartest, funniest, and most beautiful person I’ve ever met. The only problem is she loves staying up into the early hours drinking as much as I do and this is not conducive with 5 am alarms. That said, it’s been quite a year.

The smile on her face while he gently lays a peck on her is truly heartwarming. The pair now are enjoying the fruits of their married life as they got married the same year.

The Radio Host, also a comedian, took to Instagram to share his new chapter with the world alongside his wife, Bella Mackie.

The husband-wife was glowing while exchanging vows together. His wife, Mackie, looked absolutely stunning as she was walking down the Isle with Jacquemue's Wedding Gown. 

Talking about his newly married wife, he wrote, 

She is the best thing ever and I feel like I might actually burst with happiness.

Well, the pair seems to be going strong as they have entered their third year of marriage, which will be completed this September. While celebrating the two years of their marriage, he again took to Instagram to show gratitude and gratefulness towards his wife.

Sharing a photo of him being mesmerized by her smile, he wrote, 

In happier news, it’s been two years since we got married and it’s still the best thing ever

We cannot wait to see what beautiful words the radio host will shower to his beautiful wife on the 3rd anniversary of their marriage.
