It’s not known how long Rhys and Beth have been dating, but her name was first revealed during a cheeky shoutout on Strictly.
After Rhys and Nancy performed their steamy Argentine Tango to Phil Collins’ In The Air Tonight, Strictly’s host Claudia Winkleman asked the broadcaster: ‘What did your girlfriend Beth say when you told her you were doing the Argentine Tango?’
Rhys replied: ‘Beth said “If i’m not jealous, you’re not doing it right.” So, Beth I hope you’re both proud and jealous!’

On Strictly, Rhys just missed a place in the long-awaited final, which saw former EastEnders actress Rose Ayling-Ellis and Giovanni Pernice taking the crown.
Reflecting on his stint on the ballroom series, Rhys previously admitted it was ‘very scary’ but there was a lot of behind-the-scenes support.
‘They have their own therapists in there. They’ve got people that who you can talk to if you’re feeling lonely, because I mean, they know it can be a very stressful show in a very scary show,’ he told OK! magazine.
A born and bred Londoner, Rhys joined CBBC in 2016 and has presented numerous other shows including Blue Peter and Newsround.
