In 2020, Anthea and Mark spoke to HELLO! about their engagement, which took place a year earlier. 

Describing her Italian partner, 57, as ‘the love of her life’, Anthea said: ‘We adore each other he makes me smile every day and we are excited about our life together.’

Mark proposed to his fiancée at whirlwind speed just two months after their first date.

The TV veteran was previously married to ex-husband Grant Bovey for 13 years, but the couple split after he cheated on her with a woman half her age in 2013.

Anthea’s first marriage was to her manager, former DJ Peter Powell, in 1990, with the couple splitting up eight years later.

In October Anthea revealed she had penned a letter to her then-husband Grant, pleading with him to understand how the menopause was responsible for her behaviour – not knowing he was already cheating on her with a 24-year-old.

She said her work commitments made it hard to have a proper conversation with her ex, so she tried to put down the changes she was experiencing on paper.

The couple had been married 12 years before they split up when she was 52 after she found out about his affair.

Former GMTV host Anthea said at first she herself didn’t understand what was happening to her, and she welcomed the recent more open debate about the menopause.

She said on the Postcards From Midlife podcast: ‘I hadn’t a clue what was going on. We need to talk about it – it’s a horrible time.

‘You just all of a sudden don’t feel yourself. And I know that sounds such a pathetic thing to say, “Oh, I don’t feel myself,” but you really don’t. You feel like somebody’s invaded your body.

‘All your markers are all out by a few degrees. I got spots on my back and I was sweating. I felt my confidence was going. I was getting brain fog, I was questioning myself.

You want to turn to the person who’s the most important in your life, your husband, and I couldn’t. I’d be going backwards and forwards to Toronto at the time because I was doing a programme out there.

‘But, of course, what I didn’t realise is at the time he was going through his own little menopause, and he’d obviously taken up with a, very exciting in his life, 24-year-old.

‘So a sweaty, moaning wife was just like the last thing he wanted. And I wrote this little letter saying, you know, please understand that.

‘I then went reading up about it and found out a lot more, and I tried to explain. I thought I’ll write it all down and I wrote it all down.’
