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.

On finally finding The One, the media personality gushed about her man of 13 months, who had planned a trip to Rome for her 60th birthday: ‘Mark is the absolute love of my life, we adore each other.

‘He makes me smile every day and we are excited about our life together. Sometimes, when you are a bit older and you have lived, something tells you this is so right, you just know.

Sweet: She went onto gush that Mark is ‘the love of her life,’ and they ‘adore each other’

‘People might say why do you have to get married, or why would you want to. It is because I do believe in marriage, and I can’t think of a nicer person to be with for the rest of my life.

‘I’ve always said I would get married again, I knew I would meet someone, that I would not be on my own. I definitely never put up the shutters to finding love again, with ‘keep away’ tattooed on my forehead.’ 

It also comes after Anthea revealed she tested negative for coronavirus after falling ill with a ‘horrific flu’ over Christmas, as she celebrated having Botox for the first time since lockdown.

Worrying: It also comes after Anthea revealed she tested negative for coronavirus after falling ill with a ‘horrific flu’ over Christmas

‘I’ve just been and had my botox done and I’ve also had a Covid test,’ she explained in an video.

‘I don’t know about you but I was one of those people that around about Christmas I had this horrific flu. I honestly thought I was going to die,’ Anthea explained of her reasons for having a test.

‘I’ve never had flu like that. I think I’ve only ever had flu once in my life. And I’ve been wondering if it was Covid that I had but no it wasn’t.’

‘So I’ve had the test and at least now I can put all the results on the Covid app and hope it helps in the great picture of things and pulling together all the data of how Great Britain has coped and what we actually had and what we didn’t.’ 

Close call: She told fans: ‘I’ve never had flu like that. I think I’ve only ever had flu once in my life. And I’ve been wondering if it was Covid that I had but no it wasn’t’

Thrilled: In a video she shared with fans on Instagram, she also celebrated having Botox for the first time since lockdown


Wrinkle-free: In the caption for her video Anthea revealed she’s been having regular Botox sessions for 20 years, and she has been keen to fix her ‘lockdown frown’

Anthea went on to excitedly reveal she had indulged in her first Botox treatment since lockdown, admitting: ‘I’ve never shied away from the fact that I have it done and actually it does work, it really does in fighting the good fight on aging.’

‘Where do I invest? I always say on a good haircut and if you can afford it a bit of botox,’ she added.

In the caption for her video Anthea revealed she’s been having regular Botox sessions for 20 years, and she has been keen to fix her ‘lockdown frown.’ 

‘Definitely ended up with the LD frown so fixed that today – Beauty LD lessons learnt,’ she said.

‘I’m good at DIY, not missing my nails as much as I thought, have embraced and like my curly hair, definitely more grey than I thought, sort of cool about it.’

‘Botox though still the bomb and if you want to place your money in an area of beauty where you are going to get a ‘result’ you can’t beat it. I started 20 years ago and have definitely arrested a little of the ageing process by its use.’

Cute: Anthea and Mark certainly seemed happier than ever as they headed out to pick up some household essentials
