Jimmy Carr alongside Carol Vorderman and Kriss Akabusi will guess three mystery celebrities houses tonight on Through the Keyhole, but as he takes a look into other celebrities home lives, Express.co.uk takes a look into Jimmy’s personal life.

Jimmy is known for hosting the comedy panel show 8 out of 10 cats, but it seems initially the comedian didn’t intend on pursuing a career in comedy.

Before he made a name for himself in comedy, Jimmy is said to have worked in marketing; however, after two years on the job he chose to try his hand at comedy.

After establishing himself as a stand-up comedian in 2005 Jimmy went on to win the funniest man at the Laftas.

Jimmy now hosts 8 out of 10 cats as well as the yearly round-up show The Big Fat Quiz of the Year.

Is Jimmy Carr married?

Jimmy and long-term partner Karoline Copping have been dating since meeting in 2001.

While the couple have been together 19 years, the pair are not married.

Jimmy and Karoline are reported to have met at a television interview during auditions in 2001 where Karoline is a commissioning editor for Channel 5.

Jimmy confessed on Radio 4’s Desert Island Discs many years later that he didn’t make the best first impression with Karoline.

Jimmy said Karoline’s first impression was that Jimmy was a “one-note comedian with the eyes of a sex offender.”

However, Jimmy told the radio show it was love at first sight for him.

Jimmy said: “I knew. It felt perfect.”
