Woody Cook has revealed he split from girlfriend Nell Williams 11 months after they confirmed the romance while closing their lips on the red carpet of the Attitude 101 event.
Zoe Ball and Fatboy Slim’s 21-year-old son confessed that he amicably parted ways with the student eight months ago due to his busy schedule, making it difficult for him to “be there for someone else.”
In an exclusive conversation with MailOnline, he claimed he plans to remain single for three years – unless he attracts the attention of someone “out of my reach.”

The DJ said, ‘Well, as much as I love Nell, I’m single. We broke up like eight months ago, give or take. But no, we’re still friends.
“I think right now I’m working so hard on my job and everything, like the last few relationships I’ve been in, that I’ve struggled to balance my own life and try to be there for someone else.
“For the next few years I just want to be single and focus on getting my things in order. Yes all that. I want to try to concentrate, you know?’
Woody, who came out as bisexual in 2019, revealed that while he’s not actively seeking new love, he’s open to a naturally thriving relationship.

He continued: ‘Not looking for love, no. It’s one of those things… I basically said I’ll be single for the next three years unless I find someone who’s in a similar industry to me – and much cooler than me. They must be out of my reach!’
In December, Woody first lifted the lid on his relationship with Nell.
The model revealed that he was “in love” and that he and college student Nell had a bond about “burning incense and negative energy” in his bedroom.
The pair confirmed their romance when they closed their lips at an Attitude bash, which came after Woody came out publicly during his time on The Circle in 2019.

He told the mirror: ‘Nell is my girlfriend. We’ve been together for about nine months now and are very happy together.
“We were burning incense and negative energy in my bedroom—and it went from there.
‘We are loved. She takes care of me and we just connect. I’m a bit of a crazy character, so I want someone who is just as crazy or crazier than me.
“I want someone to take my hand and take me on a crazy adventure instead of grounding me. Nel does that. She makes life exciting.’

Woody gears up for a London bike rave, Tour de Dance, on November 9 to celebrate the increase in the number of Britons traveling on two wheels.
Together with bicycle subscription brand Swapfiets, Woody will spin a DJ set on two wheels and lead Londoners around the city at a party to see it in a new, festive light.
He said: ‘Cycling allows you to explore the city more and find new bars, clubs and restaurants that you may not have discovered before. And with the added benefit of being eco-friendly, it’s the perfect way to get around.
