Richard Wilkins is «breaking up with girlfriend of four years Nicola Dale» after reporting the Today presenter was set to propose to the flight attendant.

Richard Wilkins has reportedly broken up with his girlfriend of four years, Nicola Dale.

The Nine Entertainment Editor, 69, was rumored to be popping the question soon, but it seems the news may have cooled the relationship instead.

Sources say the couple split in November, not long after they were spotted together at Melbourne’s Derby Day celebrations, The Daily Telegraph reported on Sunday.

An insider claimed their relationship soured in March after online media speculated about their possible engagement.

They said Richard was reluctant to marry a fourth time after giving away small fortunes to his last three wives during their respective divorces.

However, sources close to the presenter said in March that he wants to commit to the former flight attendant, whom he has been dating since 2020.

«Dickie may be 68, but he has a lot of life left in him. Now he is more than ready to finally settle down,” they told New Idea at the time.

«They have such a wonderful lightness about them. They give each other their space as a couple, but they seem really happy with each other.
