The TV star tied the knot to husband Ben Andersen in 2004.

Kirstie is also stepmother to her partner’s two children, Hal and Orion, from a previous relationship.

The family live in Notting Hill, West London, and have a second home in Devon – which caused all sorts of trouble during the first lockdown in 2020 (see below).

She is currently 49 years old, and will turn 50 this year!

What’s her feud with Piers Morgan about?

Earlier this week, Piers hit out at Kirstie over her “cretinous” coronavirus advice on Twitter.

It came after the TV estate agent slammed the BBC for “frightening parents, grandparents and children” on social media.

Following Kirstie’s comments, Piers wrote: “Of all the people I least want to hear from when it comes to expert advice on coronavirus, TV estate agent Kirstie Allsopp and her cretinous trampoline analogies are top of the list.”

It isn’t the first time the two have been embroiled in a public spat, after Kirstie was called out by Piers for travelling to her second home in Devon during lockdown.

After the dust settled, the GMB host Piers claimed Kirstie got in touch with ITV bosses to demand he say sorry.

Speaking to The Mirror, he said: “She got a load of TV execs to call me up trying to get me to stop and apologise.”
