Max George, Strictly’s Max George, says he doesn’t like ‘horrendous training’ because he’s never ready for the live show.

Max George and Stacey Giggs have rekindled their romance less than a month after it was revealed they had broken up – and days following the tragic death of The Wanted’s Tom Parker.

The 33-year-old singer was first reported to be dating 39-year-old Stacey back in 2018 – with the shaven headed hunk moving in with the ex-WAG and her two children in Manchester.

But reports last month emerged revealing that the pair had called time on their four-year strong romance – and well over a year after he had appeared on Strictly Come Dancing.

The duo have now reunited, having realized that they had made a mistake in abandoning their love after a difficult time. They feel stronger after three weeks of being apart.

Silver Screen Beat received this information from a source Sunday: “Max and Stacey had a real rough patch and in the heat of the moment they called it a day. It was a very upsetting time for both of them.

“But now things have calmed down, they both felt they wanted to patch things up.

“They are back together and working through their issues.”

Stacey was married to Ryan Giggs in 2007, but the couple split in 2017 amid allegations that he was having an affair.

The now ex-husband and wife share two children – Libby, 19, and son Zach, 15 – who Max took under his wing after moving in with Stacey.

Max was engaged to Michelle Keegan, an actress in 2011, but the couple split in 2012.

The happy news of Max and Stacey’s reconciliation comes a week and a half after the devastating death of The Wanted star Tom – who lost a brave battle against brain cancer on 30 March.

The father-of-two, who was only 33 years old, left behind his wife Kelsey Hardwick and their two-year-old daughters Aurelia, Aurelia, and Bodhi, one year respectively.

Max posted this heartbreaking tribute to his friend via Instagram last week: “Tom, my brother, my boy, my band mate, my best bud.. You lit up so many lives all over the world but I can only speak on behalf of mine. From the minute I met you, I knew this was gonna be a special chapter in my life. I was right.”

He later spoke about their time on stage together and the moment he met Kelsey, his future wife.

He also added:”We did everything together, some amazing things, some outrageous things. Im so proud of what we achieved as band mates and as brothers. I’m also proud that I was there the night you met Kels. I remember saying to you, ‘you like her don’t you?’.. to which you replied, ‘bro, like you wouldn’t believe’. You two really are like peas and carrots.

During the tribute, he thanked his pal for her courage and compared him to a fierce “lion” for his bravery and fight through his cancer treatment.

He continued:”Thank you for choosing me as your friend. It was an honour from day one. I’m so grateful I was with you until the very end. The courage and dignity I have witnessed over the last few months surpassed the lion I already knew you were.

“Although the huge hole in my life is still there, I know that your spirit will continue to live on through your beautiful children, your wife, our music and your fans.

“I’m heartbroken beyond words right now and I cannot even begin to imagine what the future holds without you, but whatever I do going forward, even on my darkest days, I can always smile and say, ‘I shared the stage with Tom Parker’.

“You will be missed so very much. I love you mate. Always. George.”
