Husband and wife duo Chris and Rosie Ramsey are set to take their podcast onto TV screens with the launch of their debut television series The Chris and Rosie Ramsey Show. But who are Chris and Rosie?

Fans of the Chris and Rosie podcast Sh**ged Married Annoyed, will be delighted that the couple is hitting BBC screens after their podcast attracted 25 million downloads in 2020 alone, having racked up over 100 million downloads as of April this year.

How did Rosie and Chris Ramsey meet?

Rosie and Chris Ramsey met as teenagers when they were aged 14. Rosie previously told Living North, “Chris and I have known each other since we were 14-years-old. We went to different schools, and we used to play out in the same street, and then we went to the same college. “So we've always known each other. Then we met properly on a night out and it went from there, the rest is history.”

The pair went on to get married in 2014, and have two sons together - Robin and Rafe. They will celebrate their 8th wedding anniversary in July 2022.

Where have Rosie and Chris moved to?

Rosie and Chris have moved from their home town of South Shields to Northumberland with their two young sons, Robin and Rafe. They moved into the £1.5m plush pad last year which boasts six bedrooms, an ornate hall way and even its own personal library room.

Speaking about the move on Instagram, Rosie told her 832,000 followers, "We have moved house. A house came up and we couldn’t resist. I wanted to move for years. I am a massive believer of fate. It was the worst timing ever but we did it. We were so lucky. We had one viewing on our last house and it sold straight away.”

In addition to a huge lawn, the property has its own treehouse which will prove popular for the kids, while its veranda and a large flagstone terrace provide areas to sit and enjoy the peaceful setting and take in the open views.

Then beyond the house itself, there are stunning views of the Northumberland countryside, while the front of the property is surrounded by trees.
