For the past ten years, Kirsie Allsopp has returned to Channel 4 each festive season to show viewers the best way to have a crafty, DIY Christmas with her Handmade Christmas series.
And while the show is doing its job bang on in aiding the festive spirit and coming up with genius ways to get crafty this Christmas, there is one thing that viewers cannot stop talking about this year.
Kirstie Allsopp has been flashing a giant diamond ring on her wedding finger and it’s taking all of the viewers’ attention away from the show!
We’re just one episode deep into the 2019 series of Kirstie’s Handmade Christmas and already, Kirstie’s two-stone diamond ring is the talk of the town.
While she’s crafting away or inspecting the festive items, all viewers can focus on is the giant rock on her ring finger.
But this isn’t a new distraction, as Kirstie has been parading the giant diamond for the past few seasons.

Where is Kirstie’s ring from?
Back in 2014, the Daily Mail reported that Kirstie’s Moi et Toi design ring cost a crazy £100,000. However, they did not say where the ring was from.
It was given to her by her long-term partner Ben Andersen that year.
As Kirstie is wearing the diamond ring on her ring finger, many have presumed it is an engagement ring. However, the couple have never confirmed that they are engaged. Ben reportedly gave her the ring to mark their decade spent together.
Kirstie said to the Daily Mail, “Am I engaged now? I’m not sure, though it looks like it.”

Kirstie and Ben: Relationship timeline
Kirstie Allsopp (47) and Ben Andersen (57) first got together back in 2004.
Together they have two sons called Bay who is 12-years-old, and Oscar who is now 10. The family live together in West London.
It is unknown exactly what Ben does, but HELLO! once described him as a “property tycoon.” He must be earning some serious money to drop 100k on a diamond ring like that… which wasn’t even an engagement ring!
