The couple started dating nine months ago and have been going strong ever since.
The advice they’ve given to keep a relationship strong is to generally get along, but also joked that they “never share chips.”
Mark revealed he visited Portsmouth for the first time not too long ago to meet Hayley’s parents, as well as Suki, her dog.
GB News entertainment reporter Hayley also met Mark’s friends and family, including Anne Hegerty, also known as The Governess.
Unfortunately, the happy couple has had to deal with some unfounded opinions about their relationship, but both Mark and Hayley have put that down to other people who just want a say based on their own lives.
Mark currently lives in Rotherham so he can be close to his five-year-old son, who he shares with ex-wife Katie.
However, Hayley lives in London and so they are determined to travel about 3 hours to see each other.
When Mark and Hayley spend time together, they always enjoy the moment and make sure it’s good, solid quality time, with little desire to do anything overly flashy.

According to Hayley, Mark is her biggest fan and fully understands the struggle between work and home life with a relationship and a meteoric career.
Mark was recently in the news for losing weight after an appearance on Loose Women.
Mark revealed the real way he managed to lose weight and once again denied having a gastric band fitted.
He said: ‘I think one of the positives of having what may or may not have been Covid a few times is that I just lost my appetite.
‘My appetite is not what it used to be. Have one of your doctors check me for a gastric band scar. They won’t find it!’
The star previously revealed The sun that although he was tempted to go under the knife, he instead decided to get fit and healthy the old-fashioned way.
