Steph McGovern, 37, was joined on her podcast Not Bad for a Monday by co-stars Geoff and Claire this week and she made an “honest” admission about her partner. The Channel 4 star spoke candidly about her home life as the mum-of-one revealed her other half is “obsessed with utensils”.
The small-screen star discussed her partner as show producer Geoff quizzed Steph on the couple’s relationship.
The host explained her girlfriend had recently purchased a new BBQ but didn’t want Steph getting her hands on it.
“Do you think she’s one of those people who fancies inanimate objects?” Steph quizzed.
Geoff quipped: “I think she might be. I have noticed in the past she’s given the eye to a hob oven.”

Steph chuckled: “That will explain why we’ve got two microwaves.”
As the Channel 4 star began her introduction on the podcast, her co-star Geoff would not let up on Steph’s partner’s activities.
“Does she keep the microwaves in different rooms? Is she having an affair – is she cheating on one microwave with the other?” he joked.
Steph laughed: “She is obsessed with her utensils and bits of kit for cooking. In a way that makes me feel left out, I’ll be honest with you.”

The cheeky confession comes after the TV presenter explained the family had purchased a new outdoor grill.
“The Mrs wants to do a BBQ so she said to me, ‘Listen, I need you out of the way because I need to get to know my grill,'” Steph explained.
“That’s what she said. I need to get to know my grill because she just bought a new BBQ.”
Steph continued: “She said, ‘You won’t understand it because you don’t cook. I’ve got to get to know the grill.’ And I said, ‘What kind of creepy statement is that? What are you going to do with the grill to get to know it?’

She previously explained the pair are planning to recreate a restaurant or bar at home in an attempt to have a date night amid the nationwide lockdown.
“And I’ve said that I want a date night. So once the baby is asleep we’re basically going to pretend that we’re going out,” the Channel 4 host told listeners.
“So we’re going to turn one of the rooms into a restaurant or a bar and pretend that we’re out.”
