He said he and the Canadian woman rekindled their relationship on the meal out, with the result that he is moving to Vancouver. BBC South West Wales reports that he is hoping to pursue his writing in Canada, with a novel about his Welsh childhood.

"Life changes when you live with somebody new and that's bound to create ideas - that's how I get ideas, by living.

"I don't sit down and think 'I'll write a song about this' - ideas come to me naturally. I can't put the guitar down, my love is still there."

Of his move to Canada he added: "I will always be Welsh and that will never be lost."
