It's unclear who Steph attended the awards ceremony with – possibly her longterm partner, with whom she shares a little girl.

The couple live together in Yorkshire and welcomed their first child in November 2019, but very little else is known about Steph's girlfriend or daughter.

"I've never officially come out," she explained, adding that she has dated both men and women. "I didn't do this big thing of 'I am gay' like my mate Reg did... I just kind of go with the flow of things, and I did not really overthink it."

Asked why she keeps her private life out of the spotlight, Steph shared: "It's not like I'm ashamed of anything in my life. It's more a case of I'm trying to lead as normal a life as I can."

The star continued: "I just want to do my job and I know that my job comes under certain scrutiny and profile. I just think that the less I talk about my private life, the less I can be asked about it."
