First Dates: Does Fred Sirieix have a wife or partner?

First Dates’ Fred Sirieix has a lot of dating advice for the people on the show, but what about his own love life?

Fred is certainly a popular fixture on the dating show, having warmly welcomed nervous singletons into the First Dates restaurant and hotel for years.

Always on hand to offer sage advice and an encouraging word, viewers are often left wondering if ocean-eyed Fred has a boo of his own.

So, with the show returning to Channel 4, what is the love life like of First Dates’ suave maître d’?

Does Fred Sirieix have a wife?

Maître d’ Fred, 49, has never been married, however, he did have a long-term partner, Alex, for 12 years.

The couple lived together in South London, and had two children: Team GB diver Andrea, 17, and Lucien, 12.

Now, however, Fred is with a woman whom he only affectionately refers to as ‘fruitcake’, and the pair are regularly pictured together on his Instagram (@fred_sirieix)

The couple has been together for at least four years, having been ‘Insta-official’ since January 2018.

In an interview with Fabulous magazine, Fred described his ideal date with Fruitcake.

‘Occasionally, I’ll go for a little wine and some tapas after work with my partner, who I like to call ‘fruitcake’.

‘It’s nice to have a relaxing conversation and chill out when you’ve had a long day. If I do get the chance to be in the kitchen, I love making fresh pasta. I find rolling it out very therapeutic and I get flour everywhere; it’s great fun’ he added.

He regularly posts snaps of the two enjoying cute dates and luxurious looking holidays together.

In a recent post, the First Dates star – who recently appeared on the Christmas special of Strictly Come Dancing – shared some nuggets of wisdom when it comes to a successful relationship.

He wrote: ‘I’m often asked for relationship advice. Simple. You get out what you put in.

‘So put time, interest, excitement, focus, effort and hard work in your relationship. And religiously set time aside for a weekly date night.’

Fred and ‘fruitcake’ announced their engagement back in March 2020, with Fred tweeting: “#fruitcake said yes’ followed by love hearts and engagement ring emojis.

The couple were due to get married in 2021, but have been forced to delay the marriage due to the pandemic.

Speaking on Good Morning Britain last July, Fred said: ‘Well we are waiting to see when we can travel as it’s important to have friends and family there.’

He added: ‘We have to stay fluid here, it’s out of control, but we are planning for early 2022 now.’

So, anyone stepping into the First Dates restaurant this series can certainly learn a thing or two from the handsome gentleman greeting them at the door.

First Dates is on Channel 4, Thursday nights from 10pm.
