Davina and Michael have since launched their own podcast Making The Cut.

During one episode, Davina admitted how Michael was often there for her throughout the years.

She said: “Having been on the receiving end of being in the chair while you do my hair, it is like therapy. You ‘therapied’ me for many, many, years!”

They recently proved that they’re so in sync by turning up to record the podcast wearing identical striped tops!

Davina’s followers have commented on the chemistry between the pair.

One said on an Instagram video she uploaded: “You two always look like you’re going to rip each other’s clothes off …. just an observation!”

You two are so blinking adorable. My favourite couple ever.

Another declared them their “favourite couple ever”.

They posted: “You two are so blinking adorable. My favourite couple ever.”

Why did Davina split from Matthew?

Davina and former husband Matthew Robertson – famous for fronting Pet Rescue – appeared happier than ever before calling off their marriage in 2017.

The pair previously married on June 29, 2000, and renewed their vows 15 years later during a low-key ceremony at the Little White Wedding Chapel in Las Vegas.

However, it wasn’t meant to be, with the host announcing their separation after years of counselling.

She shared in a statement: “I am very sad to say that Matthew and I have separated.”

The TV star allegedly agreed to a £2.5 million quickie divorce.

Since then, The Masked Singer judge has opened up on their split, saying she went through “absolute emotional turmoil”.

How old are Davina’s children?

Davina and Matthew share daughters Holly, 19, and Tilly, 17, and 14-year-old son Chester.

At the time of their split they said the children were their “number one priority”.

The statement added: “Our amazing children are our number one priority, above everything else so therefore we ask for as much space and respect from the media as possible while our family goes through this difficult time.”

Despite their past differences, the two continue to successfully co-parent their kids.

She told Woman: “Matthew is quite hands-on, so I have support from him. We share the school runs in the morning, which is really nice.

“I won’t deny it feels quite full-on when I’m on my own though. Now that Tilly’s [older], I can go out and leave her and Chester at home for the evening, which has made quite a difference. I’m finding my new normal.”

So is Matthew in a new relationship?

In 2018, Matthew bought a new four-bedroom house – the first sign that he was moving on from his marriage to Davina.

He now appears to run an adventure travel company called Momentum Bespoke.

Little is known about his relationship status post-Davina, but looking at his Twitter profile, it would appear the love of hunky Matthew’s life is now travel.

Has Davina been married before?

As well as her marriage to Matthew, Davina also tied the knot with actor Andrew Leggett in 1997.

Theirs was a whirlwind romance and didn’t last the test of time.

They split three months after saying “we do” amid reports of rows.

Davina hasn’t spoken much about her first marriage, simply admitting: “It was wrong.”

She revealed in 2006: “I fell madly in love, but it was wrong, so I got out quick. I won’t talk about it because he’s not a celebrity and it’s not fair on him.”
