Who is Arlene Phillips husband Angus Ion? Inside their 35 year romance

Nov 8, 2021

With I'm A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! 2021 just two weeks away, celebs have started rocking up for quarantine already.

The stars of the show will spend two weeks isolating ahead of the start of the hit show on Sunday, November 21.

Amongst them? Strictly star Arlene Phillips, 78, who will be the oldest ever contestant to take part.

Arlene has been spotted in Wales ahead of the show with her husband Angus Ion and their adorable dog Freddie.

Ion is proving he's already at his wife's side cheering her on, but how much do we know about him? Let's take a look…

Who is Arlene Phillips' husband Angus Ion?

Arlene's husband Angus hails from London, where he's a designer carpenter.

The couple have stood the test of time, having first started dating in 1985 after meeting on the set of Freddie Mercury's music video "I Was Born To Love You".

The couple tend to keep their relationship under wraps.

They share a daughter named Abigail together, who was born in 1990.

Arlene was 47 when she gave birth to her daughter, and she spoke to Closer and said: "[I was told] I was some kind of freak, that I would find it hard to bond with my baby when I could be the grandmother."

Arlene also has a daughter named Alana from an earlier relationship, who got married in April 2018 to husband Henry Stewart.

Dame Arlene can be found posting on Instagram to 22,000 followers where she shares snaps with other famous faces and the occasional photo with her daughter.

As well as being the oldest contestant, Arlene will also be the first Dame on the show.

Other celebrities rumoured to be heading in to the jungle were seen rocking up in Wales too over the weekend.

Amongst those seen arriving for isolation was footballer David Ginola, 54, too, with The Sun reporting that the stars were dropped at their accommodation in the early hours.

David was spotted wearing a black top and bottoms and taking a phone call while he stood outside of a house in Wales.

The luxury cottages the celebrities will be staying in in Anglesea boast gorgeous views and hot tubs.

Emmerdale's Danny Miller, 30, was spotted too with the star picking up snacks from a shop and giving his fiancé a kiss before they parted ways.
