Dermot O’Leary and his wife Dee Koppang O’Leary are celebrating their 11-year wedding anniversary, after tying the knot in September 2012.
The ‘This Morning’ presenter Dermot O’Leary, 50, and film producer Dee Koppang, 44, wed in a stunning ceremony in Kent surrounded by their nearest and dearest, including several celebrity guests.
Aside from ‘This Morning’, the 50-year-old Essex-born TV star has become a fixture on TV screens, working on Britain’s Got Talent, The X factor and Big Brother’s Little Brother.
But while many will instantly recognise his face, they might not be able to do the same for his wife – despite her having her own successful television career.
That is because the 44-year-old prefers to work behind the camera, instead of in front of it like her husband does.
Dee has worked on a number of iconic shows over the years including Netflix’s The Crown and Bridgerton. She’s also previously worked on Big Brother and T4 on the Beach as well.
The pair first met when they were both working for the same TV production company and were in a relationship for nine years before Dermot finally got down on one knee.
He popped the question during a trip to New York in 2011.
News of their engagement was kept relatively secret until Dermot’s pal Caroline Flack couldn’t help but spill the beans during a live recording of the Xtra Factor in 2011.
The late star quizzed him on why it had taken so long for him to propose, to which he replied: “Well, you don’t rush into these things.”
The pair tied the knot a year later at St Mary’s Church in Chiddingstone in September 2012 and they kept to a strict, small guestlist for the occasion.
A few famous friends were in attendance, including Holly Willoughby, Kieth Lemon, and James Corden.
