George Clarke will be returning to screen today with his new Channel 4 show Old House, New Home. However, many fans will be wanting to know more about the property expert’s life outside the screen.

The star tends to keep his family out of the spotlight but has previously shared some insight into his marriage.

George tied the knot with his second wife Katie Morgan Jones back in 2018 in an Ibiza wedding.

The couple lives together in the Cotswolds in Gloucestershire.

However, the broadcaster has been open about how filming life impacted seeing his wife.

This was especially the case during the pandemic when he was away filming National Trust Unlocked during lockdown.

Speaking to the Metro in August 2020, George opened up about the bizarre experience of being away from her.

While admitting filming has been “one of the most amazing experiences”, he said it came with its difficulties.

He explained: “I came back once in a while but my wife was isolating anyway, so whenever I came back we had to stay a safe distance.

“I’d literally sit in the garden a long way away. It was a bizarre experience.

“My kids are with their mum, so we kept in touch via FaceTime.”

Elsewhere, George has also admitted their life is quite “nomadic” but he loves being at home.

Speaking to The Sunday Times in 2020, he explained: “I also have a place in London, but home is in the Cotswolds now.

“I have quite a nomadic life.

“I travel a lot and spend on average three nights a week in hotels, so I take every opportunity I can to get home.”

Katie is George’s second wife after his divorce in 2017 from Catriona Drummond.

The couple announced their separation at the time in a statement.

George told The Mirror: “We have been married quite a long time and decided to part.

“We have separate custody of the kids and are going through an amicable separation and divorce.”

They have three children together, Georgie, Emilio and Iona.

George Clarke’s Old House, New Home airs tonight at 8pm on Channel 4.
