THE ENGAGEMENT

Stephen and Daniel got engaged in 2016, two years before eventually tying the knot in 2018. In 2021, Stephen posted on his Instagram that meeting Daniel “changed his life.”

Love was clearly in the air long before though – Daniel first posted about Stephen in January 2014, with a simple caption: “‘lovingliferightnow” and a fun, smiling black and white shot of the pair.

TV FAME

Stephen joined the original line-up of Gogglebox in 2013 with his ex-boyfriend, Chris Ashby-Steed.

Christopher was then replaced by Stephen’s mother Pat Webb during a short stint in 2017 throughout series 10 to 12, until the following year. She was then swapped out by Stephen’s husband Daniel in 2019.

Stephen prepared to take his level of fame higher with time on Dancing on Ice in 2023 but struggled after breaking his left ankle in a bad fall during training. He had surgery and was on crutches for months meaning he had to leave the competition before starting, leaving him “absolutely gutted.”

SAD ENDINGS

On Sunday, 21 April, 2024, Stephen told the The Sun on Sunday: “It’s with much sadness Daniel and I have decided to divorce.

“There is, and always will be, a lot of love there but we’ve unfortunately grown apart and made the decision to part ways.”

Daniel said: “We’ve made the decision with a very heavy heart to confirm our marriage has come to an end. I’m sure we will forever be friends.”

Changing times were always on the card for the pair before their marriage ended. In September 2023 – four years after Daniel joined him on Gogglebox – Stephen announced he was leaving the much-loved Channel 4 show after a decade on-screen.

The news was confirmed in a statement by show creators Studio Lambert and Channel 4, which read: “After a brilliant and illustrious time on Gogglebox, Stephen and Daniel have decided that now is the right time to explore life beyond the sofa and leave the show.

“As one of the original Goggleboxers, Stephen has entertained the nation with his hilarious quips since the show first started in 2013, sharing his opinions on the best and biggest TV events of the last ten years.

“We would like to thank him and Daniel for being utterly brilliant contributors to the show, and we wish them well with their future projects.”

“We would like to thank Channel 4 and Studio Lambert for letting us be part of this amazing, funny and heartwarming show.

“We are also extremely grateful to the cast and crew, or Gogglebox family, as we call them and of course the fans, thank you for all of your love & support over the years.”
