Glamorous former lover with old nervous habit (6)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

exotic

Here is my best explanation:

'glamorous' is the definition.

(thesaurus)

'former lover with old nervous habit' is the subsidiary indication.

'former lover' becomes 'ex'.

'with' is a charade indicator (letters next to each other).

'old' becomes 'o'.

'nervous habit' becomes 'tic'.

'ex'+'o'+'tic'='exotic'

(Other definitions for exotic that I've seen before include "Interestingly different or strange", "Colourful and glamorous from abroad", "Foreign; strikingly colourful", "From far abroad", "Foreign, strange or exciting", "Foreign; glamorous", "Strikingly strange or unusual", "Unusual, foreign", "From a foreign place" and "Unusual and interesting".)
