The pair met while hosting Gladiators alongside former Wimbledon footballer John Fashanu, with Crossley’s alter-ego Hunter being one of the athletes competing against members of the public in physical challenges.

The relationship was denied at the time, but Ulrika eventually discussed their connection in her 2003 autobiography, Honest.

She said, “Well, I think I was in love with James. It was a physical thing. And what a nice man he has become! ‘
