Andy Lee has joked on several occasions that his long-term model girlfriend Rebecca Harding is on the verge of breaking up with him.
The funnyman even apologised to his other half on Talkin’ ‘Bout Your Generation this week, after Sophie Monk cheekily suggested he was hitting on her.
But Andy has reassured fans the pair are doing just fine, telling the Today show on Wednesday that Rebecca – fortunately – isn’t the jealous type.

‘She knew I probably wouldn’t have a chance!’ Comedian Andy Lee (L) says girlfriend Rebecca Harding (R) is not the jealous type… after revealing his romantic past with singer Lily Allen
‘If my girlfriend’s watching, I’m definitely not hitting on her,’ Andy jokingly directs to the camera on Wednesday night’s episode of the game show, after Sophie Monk cheekily suggests he is.
‘What you saw there is instead of just participating in a TV show, I started using the camera as a direct messaging service to Bec to go “I promise you, I’m not doing this.” But yeah. She knew I probably wouldn’t have a chance (with Sophie Monk) anyway, so she was fine with it,’ he said on Today.
It comes after the radio star revealed he once dated British singer, Lily Allen, 34, more than 10 years ago.
On the Today show, he joked: ‘The fact that I was in a band at the time, and I wrote a song about it, Bec thought that was so lame and she nearly broke up with me just because of that!’
‘Bec finds that one the funniest things.’

Appearing on Nova’s Fitzy and Wippa, the 37-year-old made the surprise admission that the pair went on two dates while she was in Australia about 13 years ago, before he wrote her a cringeworthy song after she dumped him and left him heartbroken.
‘I went on a few dates with Lily back in the day,’ Andy explained.
‘Two dates with Lily Allen right, and I was really into her. She is awesome and charming, but that also happens when she’s a superstar and I’m not. It felt like Notting Hill,’ he joked, referencing the 1999 film starring Hugh Grant and Julia Roberts.
Andy said he first met Lily when she appeared on his Hamish and Andy radio show, and was then invited to one of her gigs in a Melbourne.
Andy claimed that the Not Fair hit maker did a call out to Andy at the concert before she sang to him in front of the crowd.
He said the pair went on two dinner dates and even kissed.
He then emailed her when she left Australia, but never heard back from her and was left devastated.

Andy said he was in a band at the time and wrote her a track titled Little Things after she sang her hit Littlest Things to him at that said Melbourne laneway gig.
He explained that one of the lyrics of his song was: ‘I understand that I’m sure you’re with another, but you’ve left me here to wonder what’s filling your days.’
He said he never sent Lily the track, but joked he naively hoped it would go to number one so that she would notice him again.
Meanwhile, Andy and his current squeeze Rebecca have been dating since 2014, after meeting at a Melbourne cafe where the brunette beauty was working as a waitress.
‘I caught her eye and I was attracted to her. Just the way she was treating other people, she had a lovely demeanour,’ Andy said on his radio show back in 2015.
