MasterChef judge Gregg Wallace has spoken of his happiness after tying the knot for the fourth time.

The 51-year-old cookery judge wed Anne-Marie Sterpini, 30, in an intimate ceremony at Hever Castle in Kent at the weekend.

He gushed on Twitter 'Io sono molto contento!', translating as “I am very happy”, following the nuptials.


Gregg's MasterChef co-host John Torode served as best man, while John’s girlfriend, actress Lisa Faulkner, was also at the event, as was MasterChef: The Professionals judge Monica Galetti, according to reports.

Gregg separated from his third wife, Heidi – a young teacher who had contacted him on Twitter to ask him a question about celery – in 2012 after 18 months.

He had been married twice previously and admitted cheating on his second wife, Denise – the mother of his two children – with other women.

He met Anne-Marie on Twitter in March 2013, when she tweeted him a question about rhubarb.

“I just looked at Anna’s photo and thought ‘Wow, she’s pretty.'

“So, yes, rhubarb, which was considered an aphrodisiac in medieval times, brought us together,” he has said.

Anne-Marie has previously said the couple’s 21-year age gap is 'irrelevant', telling Hello! magazine: “I don’t see Gregg as being older. I don’t even think about it.”
