Dan and Sarah celebrated their wedding anniversary with a meal out in Sheffield

Dan rarely shares photos of Sarah or their three children Susanna, Jessica and Joe, preferring to keep his home life out of the public eye. 

However, he did make an exception during his time on Strictly Come Dancing when he dedicated his romantic Viennese Waltz to his wife, which was performed to her favourite song, She's Always A Woman by Billy Joel. 

"I'm just going to gush over her for a moment," he said to host Claudia Winkleman after his performance. "Because she's one of those people, the more you know her the more you love her.

The couple share three children

"And I've known her and loved her for over half my life." As the camera focused on her, Dan continued: "There she is, she's absolutely amazing, she's such a special person and I love her to bits. I hope she enjoyed that because we really loved it."

Dan met his wife in 1999 when they were both studying at the University of Sheffield, where the TV star graduated with a Master's degree in broadcast journalism.

The couple dated for two years before tying the knot in 2001, although no photos or details have been released of their wedding.
