The Celebrity Big Brother winner, 69, is said to have revealed on stage during his Not Yet Cancelled tour on Friday night that he’s currently undergoing ‘divorce number 5’.

Jim – who hosted The Generation Game and Big Break – has previously said his four other divorces cost him £60million.

‘He’s not thrilled at the idea of going through another public divorce. He’s resigned to the reality nothing can be done.’

MailOnline has reached out to Jim’s reps for comment. 

Speaking on Piers Morgan’s Life Stories in 2018, Jim said of Michelle – who he wed in 2009 : ‘She is a very nice person. 

‘She’s impatient, she’s fiery like me. I hope I’m with Michelle for the rest of my life, there’s no one better I’d want to spend the rest of my life with. Liz Hurley, perhaps?’ 

Jim has had a tumultuous love life. 

He was 17 when he married childhood sweetheart Sue Walpole in 1971, after she became pregnant with their daughter. They divorced the following year.

The couple share daughter Sarah Walpole-Davidson, now 50, together. 

He married Julie Gullick, mother of his second child, in 1981. They divorced in 1986. They have a son Cameron, now 40, together.

Davidson has said that during that marriage he paid for an orgy with 12 call girls at a London hotel as part of a celebrity stag do.

His marriage to TV presenter Alison Holloway in 1987 ended after two years amid claims of domestic violence.

Joanne Urch later alleged she had an affair with Davidson while she was 16 and he was still married to Miss Holloway.

He had three children with former Page Three girl Tracy Hilton, whom he married in 1990 and divorced in 2000. 

Speaking with Piers in 2018, he said he ‘absolutely’ thought it was always the woman to blame for his failed relationships – and admitted the divorces had cost him dearly.

‘It’s how much money I’ve spent over the years. Getting on to 50, 60million must have passed through my hands,’ said Davidson.

Asked how he felt about that, he told Morgan: ‘Brilliant. Thank God I had it. When I won New Faces [in 1976] I said, ‘Mum you’ll never have to work again as long as you live’, and she never did.’

Davidson, who has written about his battle with alcoholism, also spoke about being arrested as part of the controversial Operation Yewtree police investigation into sex abuse allegations, which he said he found ‘pretty traumatic’.

He faced no further action but told Morgan: ‘I won’t now have a conversation with a woman in a room without someone else there. 

‘I need to protect myself, I’ve been through the hell. I’m easy to accuse.’
