“With me and Harry it was tricky with his mum,” he said.
“We had to go to court and stuff like that. So in hindsight it’s a great thing. But it’s been a strange one for Hal – he’s had to do a lot of adapting.
“I do feel quite sorry for Hal for what he’s had to go through.”
Joe said that going to court to settle their differences “changed our lives”.
“It’s just one of those things, his mum and I weren’t agreeing on certain things and we had to go to court,” he said.
