Although the pair met in 2003, they didn't start dating until a year later. The lovebirds then tied the knot in 2008, with their nearly two-year-old daughter Lexi in attendance. 

Speaking to HELLO! about her marriage in 2019, Amanda revealed: "Chris is very funny and errs on the side of lightness. We can make jokes out of any situation throughout the best and darkest times of our lives. He's rubbish at romance, but he's there for the solid things – such as keeping my car clean and making sure I relax."

She added: "He's a proper bloke who looks after me. I'm a strong, opinionated woman, but he helps steer the Mandy ship."

While Amanda likes to keep her daughters mostly out of the public eye, the sister duo can sometimes be seen posing alongside the TV judge on her social media accounts - and it's safe to say they could be triplets!

However, Amanda and Chris have experienced their share of family heartache, too. Amanda suffered a miscarriage in 2010; and in 2011, the TV presenter and Chris had a son, Theo, who was stillborn seven months into Amanda's pregnancy.

All about Amanda's relationship with Les Dennis

Amanda and Dennis had an on off relationship before ultimately divorcing. The two split up briefly in 2000 after Amanda had an affair with Men Behaving Badly actor Neil Morrissey, but in 2001 they seemed to be determined to give things a second chance. A year later, however, the pair confirmed the end of their seven-year marriage.

In 2013, Amanda opened up about her affair with Neil, telling Good Housekeeping: "I don't believe women have affairs for no reason." 

She added: "Neil rightly or wrongly got loads of stick. I feel like it was my fault - I was the one who was married. I want to change the general perception of him, as he was very caring and very loving and very worried about me because I lost so much weight. He used to cook for me and look after me and babysit the dogs."
