Carol Kirkwood on her ‘soulmate’ fiancé

Carol has previously referred to Steve as her “soulmate” and revealed he has a very romantic side.

Speaking to Prima magazine ahead of their engagement, she said: “He always makes me a cup of tea before I go to work in the morning, which is very romantic – it’s 2:45am and he often leaves me a little love note when.” I’m coming back from work.

He is without a doubt the best thing that has ever happened to me.

“That’s worth a million red roses to me.”

Then she added, “He’s without a doubt the best thing that’s ever happened to me.”

But after 18 years, their relationship faltered and they divorced.

Carol has always kept a low profile about what caused their split, but she described it as “everything so shocking to me” in her 2021 book Under The Greek Moon.

Heartbreakingly, Carol also revealed how she would burst into tears backstage at the BBC Breakfast before smiling again for the cameras.

“Funnily enough, it did help with the healing process,” she added.

“I put my grief in a compartment separate from my work, otherwise I would have ended up in a puddle of tears. The work kept me going.”
