ROBBIE Cummings is the star of BBC Four's Canal Boat Diaries, a vlog series documenting one man's expedition through Yorkshire's canals.
Spending large portions of his adult life on a boat is hardly the ideal setting to try and find love, however Robbie has seemingly managed it.
Is Robbie Cummings married?
Though Robbie isn't married, he has found love while on his travels.
The Skipper said: "Luckily, a few months ago I'm very happy to say I met a beautiful Yorkshire girl, Alice, mad enough to fall in love with me despite my constant travelling (she has a car)."
Robbie did concede that he held very little hope of a romantic life while on his voyage, giving the difficulty of travelling through a new town every day.
He told his vlog, "Although having a boat has allowed me to meet people from all over the country, meeting that special someone through canal boating was something I definitely gave up on.
"Although this nomadic lifestyle seems romantic, it's not ideal for starting a relationship because it can be difficult to develop trust.
"Because on the flip side how would I like it if a girl I had fallen for was continually, if very slowly, moving away from me?"
Does Robbie Cummings have children?
Robbie does not have any children.
He has regularly spoke of the fact his lifestyle, though peaceful, boasts many challenging and unglamorous aspects.
"They [boats] cost time so I've never been able to hold down a full time job whilst on board due to the fact that there is so much to do.
"Every weekend it's finding a new laundrette. Every 4-6 weeks planning where to get a pump out. In winter it's moving the boat to the next mooring before it gets dark."
Robbie did go on to admit how living on a boat has intertwined with the social media side of his life perfectly, claiming: "Each night after work I used any free time I had to edit videos for my YouTube channel.
"The boat was the perfect place acoustically for voice overs and recording acoustic guitar so it wasn't long before I started seeing the boat as a vehicle not just for living in but for a whole new creative outlet."
Canal Boat Diaries will air Monday to Thursday at 7pm on BBC Four.
