Stephen Mulhern’s potential romance with Josie Gibson

The multi-million-pound net worth Stephen has kept his personal life incredibly secret over the years. However, his potential new romantic partner may have split the beans for him. Stephen and Josie were spotted looking cosy, hand in hand, at the BBC Studios.

According to MailOnline, the moment was brief and took place on Saturday, April 13, 2024, when the two stars were walking outside of the studio straight to the set of the final episode of Ant and Dec'sSaturday Night Takeaway. Josie and Stephen looked relaxed as they walked together holding hands.

Josie wore a camouflage jacket and a mint green T-shirt, and Stephen sported a navy jacket over a white top, paired with jeans. When asked about their relationship status, Josie revealed:

I'm in love with Stephen Mulhern. There you go.
But story of my life, I don't think he loves me.

Stephen and Josie have been friends for some time and it may be so that he’s unaware of her feelings for him. Last year, Josie Gibson - whose career became a turning point after I’m A Celeb- revealed that she was in the early stages of romance with someone. She said:

There is someone in my life at the moment but it’s early stages...I’ve said I love you.
It’s best to just get it out of the way, I don’t like playing games.

Stephen Mulhern and Josie Gibson’s romantic history

Josie previously found love on Big Brother in 2010, when she dated fellow contestant John James Parton. She then went on to have a relationship with a childhood friend called Terry, with whom she shares a four-year-old son Reggie, but they split in 2019, reports

Stephen is also thought to be single. His last known relationship was with EastEnders star Emma Barton. They met in 2008 when they were both cast in the Snow White pantomime at the Marlowe Theatre in Canterbury, confirms MailOnline. Emma played the lead role of Snow White, while Stephen portrayed Muddles, court jester to the Queen and Snow White's best friend.

Their relationship ended in 2011 when Stephen admitted that his time with Emma came to a ‘natural end.’ Emma is now in a relationship with music producer Jason Perry, with whom she often shares loved-up snaps on her social media.

Since then, Stephen has said an interview with Celebs Now:

The last time I went on a date was about four years ago. That makes me sound really sad! I need a life. I need to stop working so much.
