Millie Mackintosh has ''grown and changed'' over the year.

The former 'Made in Chelsea' star is now dating her former co-star Hugo Taylor after splitting from husband Professor Green in February and she insists the upheaval in her personal life ''had'' to happen and she is looking forward to the future.

She said: ''The last year has had lots of change. I feel like I've grown and changed.

''A lot of things that maybe had to happen happened and I feel like I've come out and I'm feeling positive about the future.''

Despite apparent tension between herself and her former husband - who blasted her on Twitter after it was confirmed she was dating Hugo, days after their divorced was finalised - Millie insists she only wishes him happiness.

She told Hello! magazine: ''It's obviously really sad when a relationship comes to an end. But all I want is just to wish him happiness in the future. It's just moving on now.''

Just days after their divorce was finalised, Millie took to Instagram to share a picture of her and Hugo kissing on a yacht in Monaco.

She captioned the picture: ''What a perfect end to an amazing weekend #hugodirty30 (sic).''

And not long after Millie's picture was posted, Professor Green - whose real name is Stephen Manderson - tweeted: ''Money really can't buy you class can it.''

While he did not mention Millie by name, the message from the rapper - who was recently romantically linked to Rita Ora - came after he had earlier replied with a laughing emoji to a user who tweeted unflattering pictures of Millie, 26.

And he also wrote: ''Dodging bullets since 1983.''
