Simon truck up a relationship with Derrina in 2018, after meeting through church, and praised her for forming a ‘seamless bond’ with Ethan.

The former Blue Peter presenter, whose wife Gemma died suddenly in 2017 from a rare form of cancer, said he and their son, Ethan, are now ‘light years away from the dark place they were in’.

Speaking to Red magazine earlier this year, Thomas said: ‘Ethan and I will always remember Gemma, but I want to chase life down again because it is there to be embraced.

‘Ethan will grow up without a mum and this is a source of ongoing pain, but Derrina has become everything but to him.

‘We see each other at weekends and when I ask Ethan why he likes spending time with her, he says ‘I feel like a family.’

‘She has never tried to be his mother, but she’s another person he can talk to and they’ve formed a seamless bond.

‘I believe it works because we always include Ethan, ensuring he’s part of the conversation.’

He added: ‘Looking back, that dark place we were in feels like light years away now.’

Thomas was left heartbroken in November 2017 when his 40 year old wife died just three days after she was diagnosed with acute myeloid leukaemia, an aggressive form of cancer.

He is yet to return to full-time work as his ‘focus has been solely on Ethan’.
