Kate Garraway married Derek Draper on 10 September 2005

The TV star admitted to suffering an embarrassing blunder when she forgot about their anniversary in 2018, only to be reminded when Derek shared a sweet photo of them together. "When you are on your way home from a night out & you realise your husband has posted this wonderful thing on Facebook and you totally forgot it was your anniversary #fail. Do I sneak in quietly?!" Kate wrote on Instagram.

Ed Balls

Former Shadow Chancellor Ed Balls married his wife Yvette Cooper on 10 January 1998 at the Cavendish Hotel in Eastbourne. The newlyweds were pictured kissing next to the beach, with Yvette opting for an unconventional blue velvet dress with a statement collar – a departure from the traditional white bridal gown – and Ed wearing a coordinating blue shirt and tie.

He later opened up about rumours that he charged his wedding guests, telling the Daily Mail: "The Eastbourne hotel said, 'The normal room rate for a weekend off-season would be £50 a night bed and breakfast – but given that you’re going to have the whole wedding here, we’ll reduce the price to £20.'

"We said, 'Well, in that case, the reasonable thing for us to do is to reduce the room rate to £29 for guests and use the other £9 to help us pay for this expensive wedding.' We sold all the rooms. We were hard up and we had to make it work. I don’t regret it for a second."

While she has purposefully kept her love life out of the media, Ranvir Singh confirmed in 2019 that she had split from her ex-husband Ranjeet Singh Dehal. The former couple got married in 2012 and welcomed their son Tushaan the same year.

She revealed her son is the reason why she kept the details of her separation to herself. However, she hinted to GMB co-star Ben Shephard that the breakdown of their relationship may have been linked to incriminating messages on Ranjeet's phone.

Lorraine Kelly, who hosts her live show after Good Morning Britain, has been married to husband Steve Smith for 28 years. The couple married on 5 September 1992, and Lorraine has often spoken out about her big day, admitting the one thing she regrets is her choice of wedding dress. "At my wedding, it was such a small one, it was wee, it really was," she said. "All I wanted was men in kilts and pipers. There was no real plan! It was very, very traditional. My dress... Uyuy-yuy. It was 1992 so it was kind of like a Princess Diana bouffant thing with big sleeves – oh God. We could all get in it! We could all fit in my dress. I've still got it."

Piers Morgan
