The star had said during the interview, carried out during his flat pre-lockdown, that he was dating Telegraph journalist Madeline Grant, who also appeared on the panel during that fateful night at Question Time.

The couple had two children together, Winston, 11, and Eugene, eight, and Laurence said he felt suicidal when the marriage was over.
He said, & # 39; (He) was awful. He told me I never encountered racism. I responded. "Yes, of course I have". I have witnessed racism of black people against me, when I spent seven months in Kenya (as a safari driver).
& # 39; It's the way you talk. Racism can be deferential. & # 39;
Laurence has had a very controlled love life over the years.
He was married to actress Billie, the mother of his two children, from December 2007 – May 2016 and said he was surprised not to doubt & # 39; how unfit they were before each other. & # 39;
She now lives with rock star Johnny Lloyd and they have a daughter Tallulah.
In December 2016, before his divorce was finalized, he split from Vogue Williams, 34, after a brief romance, saying they & # 39; remain friends & # 39 ;. She is now married to Spencer Matthews, 31.
In August 2018, Laurence and DJ Lilah Parsons, 32, mentioned that it will stop after a 10-month space, due to & # 39; conflicting work schedule & # 39 ;.
Back in February, he said he would never meet a woman under the age of 35, to & # 39; wake them & # 39; inside.
He also publicly stated that he once dumped a partner they didn't like a pro-#MeToo ad created by shaving company Gillette, though he didn't disclose who it was.
Checkered love life: Laurence was famously married to Billie Piper from 2007-2016 and they have two sons together (pictured in October 2012)
Laurence was famously a guest panelist at a time when a public member joined him in a # 39; white, privileged man & # 39; and he described her description of him & # 39; racist & # 39; called.
He had a debate about how & # 39; Meghan Markle is portrayed in the media, winning a race series on white male privilege while on & # 39; it was questionable.
The actor had possible bias coverage for the Duchess of Sussex & # 39; boring & # 39; and accusing an audience of racism of calling him a white privileged man.
Laurence also struck out in the inclusion of a turban soldier in the 1917 Sam Mendes movie – he later apologized for it.
He told The Sunday Times that this is why actor is not involved in talks like this, because he & # 39; s not smart enough to do it & # 39 ;.

Meanwhile, a few weeks after Laurence's fateful appearance on & # 39; s show, he appeared on Good Morning Britain to apologize to the Sikh community.
He had claimed that the inclusion of a soldier wearing turban in Sam Mendes movie 1917 & # 39; incongruous & # 39; was – but in a follow-up tweet said & # 39; I stand by everything I said & # 39 ;.
The outspoken actor commented on the critically acclaimed movie in a podcast on Saturday while he was interviewed by James Delingpole.
When asked the next day about his comments from GMB hosts Piers Morgan and Susanna Reid about whether the recording of the character was historically out of place, he replied: & # 39; I am not a historian you & # 39; ; t I don't know. & # 39;
All Over: In December 2016, before his divorce was finalized, he split from Vogue Williams, 34, after a brief romance, saying they & # 39; remain friends & # 39;
Sikh historian Peter Singh Bance told MailOnline that Fox & # 39; s facts & # 39; should check, saying, & # 39; Laurence Fox is wrong with his facts, about & # 39; Sikh's fighting with British troops, not just with their own regiments. & # 39;
The Lewis star had posted to his Twitter account and apologized for the & # 39; shabby way & # 39; he did not express himself.
He said: & # 39; Fellow people who are #Sikhs. I am as aware of the sacrifices that your siblings have made as I am of the loss of all those who die in war, whatever faith or color.
& # 39; Please accept my apology for being clumsy in & # 39; the way I have been expressing myself on these matters in recent days. & # 39;
But in a follow-up tweet shortly thereafter, he said, & # 39; I stand by everything I said and will continue to do so. Sleep well. & # 39;
Sikh soldiers were present at some of the & # 39; s bloodiest battles of the conflict, including Ypres and the Somme.
