Ricky Wilson has dated



  1. Fleur Fekkes – Ricky Wilson had an on and off relationship with TV researcher Fleur Fekkes. They had met while working at a bar. Ricky was her boss and to woo her, he got both of them on the same shift. At the end of the night, he would offer her a drink and pretend to call her a taxi so that he could get to spend more time with her. After dating for quite some time, they broke up at the start of 2006. However, they had got back together by the mid of the year. Their first public outing after the reconciliation was at the London’s Sin Club, where they had gained entry with a VIP pass.
  2. Lesley Williams (2010-2014) – If the reports are to be believed, Wilson started going out with TV producer Lesley Williams in 2010. After dating for almost four years, their relationship came to an abrupt end in 2014 as they struggled to deal with Ricky’s increased popularity. Plus, his flirty behavior with fellow The Voice judge Rita Ora might not have helped as well. Their separation was officially acknowledged in March 2015 as he accepted he can’t have it both ways when it came to fame.
  3. Grace Zito (2015-Present) – Just a month after the confirmation of his separation from Lesley, Ricky was linked with a personal stylist, Grace Zito. It was revealed that they had known each other for a long time and had been dating for several months.
