Dermot O'Leary and his wife Dee Koppang looked picture perfect as they attended The Old Vic Midsummer Party, which was held at The Brewery in London on Sunday evening. The couple, who married in 2012, rarely attend events together, so their joint appearance was a welcome surprise. Dressed in a tailored midnight blue suit, the X Factor host looked every inch the doting husband as he posed on the red carpet alongside his wife. Keeping things classy, Dee wore a chic a black blouse with bow detailing, which was teamed with a white A-line midi skirt.

The couple - who met in 2002 at a TV production company where they both worked - tied the knot in September 2012 after a ten-year relationship. Since then, Dermot has described married life as "brilliant". In January, he told Daily Mail: "We keep each other sane. And we share opinions on work. She's very smart." Despite their busy workload, Dermot previously revealed that they would love to have children one day. "I definitely want kids, but I've got a very busy wife with a very busy life," he told Fabulous magazine in 2015. "I want them when we both think it's the right thing to happen. It's not fair for me to say: 'I want kids now.'"
