Hairy Bikers star Si King, 54, ‘SPLITS from his Australian fiancée Michele Cranston’

Hairy Bikers star Simon ‘Si’ King has reportedly split from his Australian fiancée Michele Cranston.

The star, 54, who had previously said he was planning to marry the chef this year, has allegedly called it quits after a long-distance romance, according to The Mirror.

Ahead of the Covid pandemic, Si revealed he’d been flying to Australia every month to see his bride-to-be Michele, and he popped the question during a romantic dinner in Northern California.

Si, who is returning to screens with fellow Dave Myers for their new series The Hairy Bikers’ Go North, first met Michele while filming his Down Under series. 

The star detailed the exhausting journey to meet the cook in 2018 telling The Mail On Sunday: ‘Tell me about it. It’s a long journey. If you’re going to fall in love, don’t fall in love with someone in Australia!’ 

In 2019 he also revealed that he and Michele were planning to wed, telling The Mirror: ‘We get married in 2021 and I’ll be commuting from Australia for work, so that’ll be interesting.

‘It’s been a long-distance relationship for a very long time now so we’ll be seeing a lot more of each other.’

He went onto detail the moment he popped the question on a trip to the US, saying: ‘I got down on one knee on the Sonoma Coast – over the Pacific with the waves crashing down. It was very romantic but it almost killed us because it was getting dark.’

But it’s now been reported that the star has split from his bride-to-be.

MailOnline has contacted representatives for Si King and Michele Cranston for comment. 

Si was previously married to his wife Jane for 27 years and they have three sons, but he insisted despite their split they’ve remained close friends.

The TV star said in 2016: ‘We lost each other. Jane was focused on the family and I was focused on work.’

Ahead of The Hairy Bikers’ new series, Si also detailed his excitement at becoming a granddad for the first time, saying: ‘It was fantastic. She is an absolute joy… I am completely smitten. It’s very odd.’ 

The star also suffered his own major health scare in 2014 when he collapsed with a headache and was told he had an aneurism that might kill him.

Both he and David, who also battled pneumonia, have also slimmed down in a recent years after overhauling their diet and lifestyle.
