ITV host Stephen Mulhern always gets a laugh when he's on screen, from his costumed appearances on Saturday Night Takeaway to his hosting stint on Dancing on Ice alongside Holly Willoughby, the star is now returning for the new series of In For a Penny.

Viewers are sure to love Stephen's quick wit and mind-blowing magic tricks, and like any magician, Stephen is generally tight-lipped about his illusions. Another place the star likes to keep quiet about is his dating life. Here's everything you need to know about the presenter's love life...

Stephen's current relationship status

The host has always remained tight-lipped when it comes to his private life, so it's not known whether Stephen is currently in a relationship. However, the game show star did speak out about his single status in recent years. He told Celebs Now in 2018 that he had been single for a "while", explaining: "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."

Stephen even expressed his opinion on the prospect of love in the future, and whether he might try online dating. "No way! One of my best mates met a girl online. But I think it's a bit weird someone from the TV doing online dating. I think it'd be bizarre."

In recent days, Stephen has been linked to This Morning star Josie Gibson, after the pair were spotted holding hands in London. However, Josie appeared to quash rumours of the pair being an item, as she explained to MailOnline: "I'm in love with Stephen Mulhern. There you go. But, story of my life, I don't think he loves me."

Despite being ferociously private about his romantic history, Stephen has been linked to other names in the TV industry in the past. According to reports, the magician-turned-TV star dated EastEnders actress and former Strictly finalist Emma Barton, but this was never confirmed.
