‘Then we met again properly about 18 months later at a function. We started talking there and we’ve just not ever ceased since really. It’s pretty cool.’

The pair dated for just three months when they decided to get engaged. They then eloped after Melissa filmed SBS’s The Chef’s Line, just two months later. 

‘When that wrapped, we went to Joshua Tree in California and eloped. It was all very fun,’ the foodie-turned-TV judge said.
