Danni Menzies, 33, met her army hero ex-boyfriend on a blind date in London last June. The A Place In The Sun presenter’s former flame was awarded the Conspicuous Gallantry Cross after he was shot in the throat during a horrific Taliban shoot-out.

Despite this, the soldier continued fighting in Afghanistan in 2013 and helped to save colleagues in Operation Herrick.

The presenter told the Sunday Post at the time: “Two of our best friends are dating each other so they set us up. 

“He came out of the Army about five years ago and started a company doing outside broadcasting, rigging live events for TV.

“When I first saw him I thought he was attractive. He is a tall, strapping lad, but he was quite nervous and I like people who are confident, so I wasn’t sure.

“Later on in the date, he took control and took me to a fantastic speakeasy kind of place where you solve puzzles for drinks.

“It was really good fun and he was the most gentlemanly man I have ever been on a date with. “

Danni introduced him to her family including her mum, dad and brother.

They all got on famously and their relationship was going from strength to strength in June last year.

The A Place In The Sun host even divulged that the couple rarely argued, which was “rare” for her, as she usually gets “fed up” with men quickly.

However, the relationship came to an end by November and she announced the split on her social media.

She wrote: “We didn’t make it past August” alongside a laughing emoji.

The 33-year-old finished up filming A Place In The Sun last week on the Greek island of Corfu.

Danni wrote on her Instagram: “Homeward bound! What an absolute treat it was to film in the gorgeous Greek islands with such great people. So lucky at this time, I know!!!

@aplaceinthesunofficial has been more popular than ever over the last year so hopefully enduring my sunny social posts will be worth it when you see the new series.”

“Also thanks for all the feedback on things to try to help with the pigmentation and the lovely responses on keeping it natural. 

“Going to do my best to keep it up,” she added.

In response, fans praised the star’s natural beauty.

One said: “Stunningly beautiful!”

A second remarked: “Lovely to have met you this morning!! Such a gorgeous lady.”

While a third commented: “You have helped us keep going!”
