The Who Wants to be a Millionaire? host lived in Greenwich, Connecticut, with his wife Joy from 2008 until shortly before he passed away from a heart attack in July 2020. The couple had sold the gated mansion, which Joy described as their favourite home, for $4.015million (£3.07million) in order to be closer to their children in California.

When they put the property up for sale in 2019, Joy, who was once an interior designer, told the Wall Street Journal: "We've moved around a lot and lived in many houses together but this house will always be our favourite.

"We celebrated many birthdays and holidays and never had to worry about inviting too many of our family and friends. There was always room for everyone."

According to TopTenRealEstateDeals.com, it spanned 13,661 square feet and had six bedrooms, nine bathrooms, and 2.59 acres of expansive gardens.

Regis often joked about his home life on his morning TV show, Live!, telling viewers that his lack of home improvement skills meant it was often up to his wife Joy to get jobs done around the house.
