“I had seen him out and about in ­Manchester and we had mutual friends.”

But their relationship was turbulent at first, as Tanya exclusively told OK! Online: “I used to dump Phil like every weekend in the beginning just to train him up, he was like a naughty puppy and kept p**sing on the carpet… He didn’t literally p**s on the carpet!”

When did Tanya and Phil get married?

The loved-up duo got married on 7 June 2014 at Peckforton Castle in Tarporley. Tanya looked stunning, wearing a sparkly tiara and white lace dress. Soon after she tweeted a photo calling Phil the "love of my life".

After the very traditional-style wedding the pair jetted off to Las Vegas to let loose on their honeymoon.

What is their relationship like?

Tanya opened up on their relationship to OK! Online saying: “We’ve learnt what gets on each others nerves and not to do that. It’s just a mutual respect. When one’s tired you just know to leave them alone. It’s just stuff like that, it just comes with time.”

The star also explained that during lockdown they had been afforded quality time together which they don’t usually get. She said: “I’ve loved the time off because I never normally have my husband and we’ve not actually argued.

"Normally I’d get stressed with the housewives and come back and take it out on him. Or he’d get stressed with football, doesn’t get the net or something like that and comes back grumpy. We’ve had no outside stresses… we’ve actually quite enjoyed it.”

Do they have children?

The couple have three children; Rocco, 11, Renz, seven and Ralphi, three. Tanya also has Gabriella, 18, from a previous relationship.

The reality star told OK! Online about life during lockdown with her children, revealing: "Its been going quite good obviously its just the same as everyone else home schooling has been quite testing.

"I didn’t realise how thick I was until homeschooling, trying to do an 11 year old’s fractions is not great."

She then added: "I’ve got an 18 year old and a three year old but the two in between really, they are just wild, wild boys so trying to get them to even sit down was quite testing. But at least we are all safe thats the main thing."
