My Kitchen Rules’ JP Huillet has broken his silence on social media following the news his ex-girlfriend and MKR partner Nelly Riggio was dating celeb chef Adriano Zumbo.

After Adriano shared romantic photos of him on vacation on the Maldives with Nelly, JP took to Instagram addressing their relationship.

"I just wanted to say a MASSIVE thank you to everyone who supported me yesterday and continue to today and moving forward," she wrote, alongside a selfie.

"Family, friends and fans (so weird to say that!) your kind words and messages have helped through a tough time."

In the post, he wished Nelly and Adriano "nothing but the best", and thanked his fans for their unwavering support.

"Just so everyone knows I'm happy and healthy and wish nothing but the best for everyone involved," he added.

"For anyone who knows me I'm super positive I love life and nothing will hold me down! So just to show my endless appreciation to EVERYONE thank you and I love you all!"

Adriano and Nelly confirmed they were together through a series of loved up holidays snaps they shared over the past weekend.

The Just Desserts hosts captioned a photo of the pair: "Happy New Year 2017 from the Maldives!!!!! Looking forward to many years with this hottie."

She was still with JP at the time but their relationship fizzled within months of her move to Sydney, according to Confidential.
