Donnelly, who has won the National Television Awards Most Popular Entertainment Presenter ten times alongside McPartlin, has dated TV presenter Georgie Thompson and actress Clare Buckfield in the past.

Talking about their relationship previously, Donnelly admitted it was "a little strange" when the couple first got together because they had been work colleagues for so long, but said: "It's going good. Everything's hunky-dory."
