“He always made me a cup of tea before going to work in the morning, and it was so romantic – it was 2.45am!

“And he often leaves little love notes for me when I come home from work. To me, that’s worth a million red roses,” he said.

Kirkwood added that he was “the best thing that ever happened to me, without a doubt”.
