Underneath a selfie of the couple, Lucy explained that they fell in love during Covid-19 lockdowns. 

‘Through those long months of curfews and isolation, and keeping each other company every morning, laughing at the most ridiculous things on air, we realised our friendship of 14 years ran deeper than we imagined,’ she said. 

‘So quietly, and slowly, we started seeing each other.’

She said they have kept the happy news under wraps as so much of their lives are made public on their radio show. 

‘So much of our lives have been so public on our show, my infertility, our marriage breakdown over the years, our battle with mental health after that, Kel’s back issues, my endometriosis story,’ she said. 

‘But this was special and different, and something we wanted to nurture and protect. So we let our loved ones in, and of course our children. And all of them were beyond thrilled that two best mates ended up falling in love.’
