Ria and Mark tied the knot back in 2012, after meeting while studying together at university.

Opening up about their romance, Ria previously told OK!: "We met at university. I remember someone said to me, '50% of people meet their spouse at university,' and I said, 'Well, that’s not me – I’m never getting married.' We were friends for years and we’d meet up but there was never anything there.

"Then when I went travelling around the world, I had a welcome back party and we both got drunk and told one another that we missed each other.

"Having that friendship set us up for a lovely marriage because we know each other so well and can be ourselves. We’ve said we’ll go to the Maldives for our 10th anniversary."

The loved-up pair now live in a stunning home in London along with their two children Noah and Lula.


Ria occasionally shares snaps of her adorable family on social media, with her and Mark taking Noah and Lula to film premieres and fun days out.

Most recently, the TV presenter shared a series of sweet pictures from their family Christmas celebrations, where they were joined by their cute pet puppy.

Ria penned a gushing caption, where she told her followers: "From my family to yours, we wish you a very Happy, Healthy Christmas!

"Am feeling so thankful for a fantastic year and am super excited for all that is yet to come, blessed to have these monkey's by my side for the ride!"

Ria rose to fame when she joined Lorraine back in 2018 and she currently presents entertainment slots every Friday morning.

The star has previously told how her family home, which she moved into around 18 months ago, is only 15 minutes from the ITV studios, allowing her to spend lots of time with her family.

Multi-talented Ria also also owns a media production company, produces a podcast and runs Wonder Women TV – an online network championing trailblazing females in the creative industries.

Now, she's set to take on the challenge of professional ice skating on live TV.

Speaking ahead of her Dancing On Ice debut, Ria opened up about being a super fan of the hit ITV show, and her excitement having been asked to take part.

In an exclusive chat with OK! she said: "Extremely nervous. But it’s one of ITV’s most sparkly shows, and I do love my sparkles, so I couldn’t believe it when they invited me to do it.

"I feel I’m about to go on this wonderful journey and learn a new skill.

"So, for me it feels magical, and I know I’m going to fall in love with this programme. Of course there’s an element of danger, but I’m prepared for that and I’m not afraid, because in life you have to try to challenge yourself."

Dancing On Ice airs on Sunday 16 January on ITV.
