At the time David was a starting out as an antique dealer while Lorne was a cabaret singer.

David prefers to keep their marriage away from his career in the spotlight but in 2005, as David went into the I’m a Celebrity Geto Me Out Of Here! jungle, Lorne opened up on how he is “perfect” to her.

She gushed: “He’s charming, plucky, loves a challenge, and he’ll do his best.”

Lorne added: “I know he sounds perfect but, actually, he is.”

David opened up about his marriage to Lorne in 2017, where he spoke candidly of their relationship dynamic.

The star said: “Lorne lets me think I’m the master of my own home.

“Any girls who know what they’re doing lets their man think they’re in charge, but we know we’re not really.”

During their marriage, the couple have welcomed son Robert and daughter Katrina together.
