Steve and Phylicia met while the TV presenter was living in LA, presumably filming for The X Factor USA. Speaking to back in 2015, he revealed that they were first acquainted with each other at a mutual friend's birthday party.

"I asked her on a date and here we are, married," he explained. "It was very traditional in that sense… she always said to me that I was a little bit cold, because I was talking to one of my friends about a serious subject, and I wanted to finish the chat first rather than go, 'excuse me, there's a woman over there!'"

The pair tied the knot in October 2014 in a low-key ceremony at the Mayfair Library, holding a reception near Tower Bridge. The couple do not share any children but own two dogs and reside in Bray, Berkshire.

Before working as a recipe developer, Phylicia made a living as a model and appeared in print campaigns and TV commercials for Abercrombie & Fitch, Nike, Apple and Levis.

In 2013, the 36-year-old relocated to London with Steve.

The Perfect House presenter often gushes about his wife on Instagram. Last year he wrote a sweet tribute to Phylicia: "My girl has been writing recipes for @waitroseandpartners for a while but tomorrow’s Waitrose Weekend paper will contain her first feature piece. I couldn’t be more proud. She’s the reason I’m so happy and the reason why you can’t see my stomach muscles anymore. Give her a follow for foodie inspiration and a good dribble @the_modern_mrs."

Perfect House, Secret Location debuts on Thursday 17 March at 8pm on Channel 4.
