'Masterchef' host Gregg Wallace is hoping to wed his 28-year-old girlfriend in a low-key Italian ceremony following his axe from 'Strictly Come Dancing'. The 49-year-old is reportedly devastated at being the first star to leave the show, with 'Strictly' professionals Ola and James Jordan slamming his dance partner Aliona Vilani for speaking ill of the chef
Gregg Wallace is planning to marry his girlfriend.
The 'MasterChef' host is hoping to tie the knot for the fourth time, this time with his girlfriend Anne Marie Sterpini, 28, in a low-key ceremony in Italy following his failure on 'Strictly Come Dancing'.
Gregg admitted to the Daily Star newspaper: "My next challenge may be marrying my girlfriend. She's one of the most wonderful people I've ever met. A very quiet wedding in Italy would be ideal."
The 49-year-old star didn't comment, however, on whether he'll be sweeping his bride off her feet in a romantic first dance.
The usually cheery food critic is reportedly devastated after being the first to be voted off the BBC One celebrity dance contest, with his professional partner Aliona Vilani adding salt to the wound by expressing her dismay on twitter about being partnered with older celebrities three years in a row.
Fellow Strictly professional Ola Jordan told the Daily Mirror newspaper: "Gregg's gutted. I think he wanted to stay longer."
And Ola's beau, James Jordan also stood up for the chef, slamming Aliona for her comments.
He added: "Aliona has won the show before [with Harry Judd], she's had Matt Baker as well. I think that's harsh of her. At the end of the day Gregg's still a human being.
"You're not always going to get the fittest, hottest partner. I think it's a bit short-sighted of her to say that."
