Steve proposed to Phylicia’s family in Italy in September 2014 after moving from Los Angeles to the UK with him in 2013.

They tied the knot in October 2014 in a low-key ceremony at London’s Mayfair Library and held a reception near Tower Bridge, just a month after popping the question.

A source told the Daily Mirror at the time: ‘It may seem to have happened incredibly quickly for the strangers given they only had a few weeks to plan the whole day, but they couldn’t be happier .”

He also surprised singer Kylie Minogue, 53, when he took a knee when she took over a T4 weekend on Channel 4 in 2010.

However, Steve doesn’t seem to look back on his past relationships, telling the Mirror over the weekend: ‘Even talking about the past now would be disrespectful to [Phylicia]. I don’t think about the past. I don’t read about myself or Google my own name.

“We are happy and having a good time. It’s one of the things I’m most proud of.

The presenter said in 2015: “The problem is that Phylicia is so fantastic that I want to keep marrying her.”

‘I love her so much I keep thinking, ‘Well, I’m going to propose to her right now, because she’s so perfect,’ and then I’m like, ‘Oh, wait a minute, She’s already my wife!

However, he hasn’t been totally on his best behavior since meeting Phylicia – in 2017 Steve admitted to having sex in a Buckingham Palace toilet with his wife during an appearance on Through The Keyhole.

Addressing host Keith Lemon to explain why he was there, Steve cheekily said: “For some kind of charity, I took my wife with me and we had sex in the bathroom.”
