Dr Hilary married fitness expert Dee back in 2016. As a personal trainer, she helped design the workouts featured in many stars' workout DVDs, including the likes of Natalie Cassidy, Charlie Brooks and Letitia Dean. The couple met when they worked together on GMTV's Bikini Diet segment back in 2008. At the time, Hilary was married to his second wife, and their relationship remained platonic until some time later.

Of their relationship, Dee has previously said: "I was the GMTV fitness expert helping people get in shape for summer and he was the doctor giving health advice. We were filming in Spain and really got on. A year later we were both at a friend's wedding, re-connected and we've been together ever since."

Dr Hilary was married twice before he met his current wife Dee. From 1977 to 1987 he was married to Anne Marie Vives and together, they welcomed two sons Tristan and Sebastian. His second marriage to Sarah Harvey lasted for 19 years, from 1990 until 2009. They are the proud parents of twins Samantha and Rupert, and son Dylan.
