Strictly Come Dancing star Faye Tozer made sure she put some time aside from her busy schedule to wish her husband, Michael Smith, a happy birthday. Taking to her Instagram page on Monday, the Steps singer shared a sweet picture of the couple, in which she praised her husband for all his support over the past few months. "A very Happy Birthday to my gorgeous hubby @mick_smith_ who has been the most incredible support and held the fort for the last 3 months!!! Thank you!! You rock baby!! Love you most," she wrote in the caption.

Clearly impressed with the message, Michael replied: "Thank you beautiful." Faye's Steps bandmate Lee Latchford-Evans wrote: "Happy Birthday bud, hope you're being spoilt." The birthday celebrations come shortly after Faye was seen enjoying a "flirty" lunch date with her Strictly dance partner Giovanni Pernice. Responding to the rumoured flirting, which saw Giovanni wiping food away from Faye's face, Michael shared a photo of himself with a few grains of rice stuck to the corner of his mouth, along with the caption: "Where’s @pernicegiovann1 when you need him? Help me out @fayetozersmith [smiley face emoji]."
