Just as they got to know each other, it also happened during his work.

“I did a vacation program, I wish they would come back, they were just great,” he said on This Morning.

“And they’d agreed to fly Philippa out, and I’d done San Francisco and Hawaii on the same trip, and she came out at the end of the Hawaii shoot.

“It was the longest time we’ve been apart and I missed her so much that I proposed while she was really jet lagged and in such a strange place.”

The happy couple then returned to the same hotel 23 years later.

He told The Mirror, “I’m alone with the animals – well, I tend to get a little wild.
