James Nesbitt is enjoying celibacy since splitting from his wife.

The 49-year-old actor split from his wife of 19-years, Sonia Forbes-Adam - with whom he has daughters Peggy and Mary - last year and has confessed he's been enjoying single life ever since.

He told the Daily Telegraph newspaper: "My family is living in Herne Hill and I'm renting in Dulwich.

"You'll find me in the pub twice a week. I'm enjoying the single life, and, oh yes, the celibate life."

Meanwhile, the 'Cold Feet' star previously admitted he's been living an "isolated life" in order to get into character for his latest role in new BBC One drama 'The Missing', in which he stars as the father of a child who has been abducted.

He explained: "I tried to live as isolated a life as I could ... And I tried not to be social with the crew or cast. I would go out and eat by myself..."

And James believes the intense storylines and not being able to see his children while filming in Brussels actually affected his mental state.

He added: "What would occasionally get to me was the sense of isolation, the sense of being on your own. Being away from my kids, that was not easy. But the strengths of it were almost the negatives of it. It was very helpful for the piece. But certainly at times it was, ah, difficult."
