Mark Labbett: The Chase star addresses ‘rough patch’ with wife in rare marriage admission

Mark Labbett, 54, and Katie Labbett, 26 have been married since 2014 and recently made headlines after it was reported they had split up with The Sun claiming the later had. The Chase quizmaster has now opened up about his marriage in a rare admission, revealing the couple are still working on things together. Loose Women host Christine Lampard asked on the show: “Where are you Mark right now? How do you feel about everything and how is home life?” Mark replied: “Well, like a lot of relationships, you go through a rough patch. Our absolute priority is our son.

“We’re working as best we can to get through it.

“But we’ve always tried to be quite private. We’ve never done the glossy magazines.”

He continued: “A tabloid newspaper offered us a sum of money to give us an exclusive. And we respectfully declined. It’s not what we do.

“You won’t find a picture of our son anywhere on the internet because it’s been quite a deliberate decision.”

Mark added: “Nor am I going to name him again. If he wants to when he’s old enough – to have a social media profile, that’s up to him. But I’m not going to do it for him.

“But I think I should embarrass him when he’s old enough to embarrass me back.”

The ITV favourite’s admission comes after it was reported earlier this year Mark and Katie had separated.

Accoridng to The Sun, their marriage was over following reports Katie had cheated on Mark with another man.

At the time of the reports, a spokesperson for Mark insisted they were not splitting up.

They said: “Mark and Katie are not splitting up. Everything is fine between them and they have been at home together this week.”

Elsewhere, the Loose Women presenters were full of compliments as they chatted to The Chase quizzer.

As Christine introduced Mark, the panellists could not help but gush over the quizmaster.

The ITV favourite said: “The quiz show king best known for his alter ego The Beast on The Chase. He’s the man that knows it all.

“You’re even taller than I thought you were going to be. You’re magnificent.”

Mark chuckled, as he shrugged: “What can I say?”

Loose Women panellist Kelle Bryan added: “You look so great. You’ve lost so much weight. You look amazing.”

The Chase airs weekdays at 5pm on ITV.
