Amanda Holden has revealed the secret to a happy marriage as she gushed about her husband Chris Hughes.

The radio host has been married to Chris since 2008 and the pair are reportedly still as “in love” as ever.

Speaking to the Mirror, Amanda named what made her happy and said: “My family, being in love, having good people in my life that look after me.

“My husband - god, we are different people but he is my biggest, proudest champion.

“He’s not a yes man, but he is ‘Go Mandy’ all the time. So it’s just wonderful.”

After 13 years of marriage Amanda is still very much “in love” with, and fancies, the record producer.

She said: “Oh god I really fancy Chris. We’ll be eating dinner in a restaurant, he’ll go to the loo, then I’ll look up, catch a glimpse of a man and think “he’s fit” and then realise ‘f***, that’s my husband! I still fancy him!’

“He challenges me and I challenge him, and I think that’s the secret to a good marriage.”

Amanda has also praised her husband’s “strong thumbs” as she revealed she relied on him for massages throughout the pandemic.

Speaking of massages, she said: “I just missed going to a professional, rather than my husband doing it with strings.”

“He’s really good at massage. But that always comes at a price... You work it out,” she added before laughing loudly.

The couple reportedly met in 2003 in Los Angeles, but they only started dating in 2004.

In 2008 they wed at St Margaret's Church in Somerset, and now share two children together, Alexa and Hollie.
