Katherine Jenkins is known for her love of classical music, as well as her talented mezzo-soprano voice, performing at her Christmas spectacle at the Royal Albert Hall today, singing some of her celebratory favorites, but what about her relationship with Gethin Jones known?

The classic singer and Gethin Jones first met on the set of Blue Peter in 2005 while Katherine was on the show

At Blue Peter, Gethin presented himself alongside other stars such as Konnie Huq, Matt Baker, Liz Barker and Andy Akinwolere

They later crossed paths again on Strictly Come Dancing in 2007 when Gethin was a contestant on the show and later confirmed their relationship

The Morning Live host asked the question in 2010, but 10 months after they announced their engagement, the couple announced that they had gone their separate ways

At the time, Katherine said on Twitter, “I’m sorry I’ve been quiet lately I just have some very sad news

After their breakup, Katherine toured the UK and spoke of the “heartbreak” she felt at the time

She admitted in 2014: “In late 2011, when Gethin and I split up, the reality was that I had to go on a UK tour about two weeks later where I just sing heartache songs every night and heartache every day trying to find the energy to deal with it, let alone get on stage and understand its reason for it

“In the meantime everyone else has the impression that it was my choice, my ambition, I wanted to take over the world It was so far from the truth”

The singer met her husband Andrew Levitas in 2013 in Los Angeles through their joint hairdresser

She told HELLO !: “Life isn’t always what you expect it to be, and when you find someone to fall in love with, it’s amazing what you want to change

“When I speak to a friend who has just met someone who is not exactly what she thought she was, I remind her, ‘I thought I was marrying someone from home in my local church’

“But I married this man from New York and we live in a way I never imagined”

They tied the knot the following year and have welcomed daughter Aaliyah and son Xander together since then

In September, Katherine celebrated her sixth wedding anniversary on Instagram, saying, “Six years ago today, Neath and New York City got together at Hampton Court Palace (oh, what would I do to have us all in one room again!” )

“Two children and two rabbits later you are even more of a dream boat than the one I married that beautiful September evening

“Thank you for being not only the best husband, father, and friend, but by far the best decision I have ever made

“You rock my world & I don’t know what I would do without you Congratulations my love!”
