Who is Anne-Marie Sterpini?

Anne-Marie is a caterer who first made contact with Gregg, 52, to discuss ingredients.

The 31-year-old, whose parents are Italian, tweeted the former greengrocer to ask if rhubarb really went with duck, after seeing him trying the recipe on a cooking TV show.

Gregg told HELLO! Magazine: "I just looked at Anna's photo and thought, 'Wow, she's pretty'.

"So yes, rhubarb, which was considered an aphrodisiac in medieval times, brought us together."

According to her husband, Anne-Marie loves reading history books and Winnie the Pooh – and the couple are keen to start a family.

When did Anne-Marie start dating Gregg Wallace?

Anna first spoke to her husband, who is 21 years her senior, in 2013 – but initially wasn't sure if he was the real deal.

Speaking on Lorraine recently, Gregg said: “I sent her a message and we started sending messages. Then I sent her my phone number, this was five years ago.

“She came down to London to have dinner with me, and she said it wasn’t until we got to the restaurant, that she was comfortable it was really me and not an impostor.”

He added: “I think it’s just luck, and I got very lucky this time. Very lucky.”

Gregg admitted he was worried about the age gap but said it never seemed to bother Anne-Marie, who was just 27 at the time.

But Gregg said he sometimes felt uncomfortable when people saw him holding Anne-Marie's hand.

He explained: “People look at you anyway and I felt really conscious because she was younger, and I didn’t want people to judge her harshly. It was doing the ordinary things.”

The couple got engaged in December 2014 and tied the knot at Hever Castle, in Kent, on August 6 2016 – with fellow Masterchef judge John Torode as Gregg's best man.

His girlfriend Lisa Faulkner and MasterChef: The Professionals judges Marcus Wareing and Monica Galetti also attended.

The couple, who honeymooned in Portofino, Italy, are now planning to have kids.

Gregg also met his third wife Heidi, on Twitter, but their marriage ended after just 18 months in spring 2012.

He's hoping he and Anne-Marie will go that extra mile.
