‘We’ve had this private joke in our relationship where, if we found ourselves in a beautiful place or enjoying a moment, we’d wish we had a ring,’ laughs Jo Beth.

Friends for eight years through their boys’ sport, the gorgeous pair became an item a year ago after lots of chats and laughs on the sidelines.

It seems the couple are meant to be together, with children the same age, a shared love of health and wellbeing, and an interest in channelling their skills into charity work.

‘We can promise it will be something exotic and unusual,’ laughs Jo Beth.
