Both Kirstie and Phil have explained many times that they are not and have never been together with Kirstie talking on This Morning saying they are more like brother and sister.
Kirstie has been with her partner Ben for more than 18 years and the couple have two children together, Bay and Oscar, while she is also a stepmum to Ben’s older children Hal and Orion.
