Who is Louise Minchin’s husband?
Louise’s husband is David Minchin, a restauranteur and investor.
He has invested in Chestnut Inns, a collection of pubs, inns, and restaurants in East Anglia, and works as the company’s finance director.
Tending to keep their relationship private, Louise has no pictures of David on her social media, who is also 55-year-old CEO at Helium One Ltd.
While David is a keen skier, Louise is also very active as a professional triathlete who regularly goes biking.
Louise and David’s marriage
Louise and her husband David got married on June 6 1998, in a small church in Hampshire, and now live together in Cheshire village.
The couple, who had 50 people at their wedding, have been married for 23 years! They tend to keep things lowkey, but it looks like the spotlight could well be on her husband while I’m A Celebrity gets underway.
During a skiing trip, Louise said their relationship changed. She revealed on a BBC Breakfast show that she thought she’d left him on a mountain.
I always go skiing with him and it was just like, my gosh, trying to keep up with him, you know, was really hard because he’s very good, very fast, very safe. And then there was one point in our relationship when things changed and I’d been doing a lot of spinning. I used to do spin classes and I came down a glacier and I said, ‘Oh, my gosh, where is he?’
She added that he just said she was really fast, and that it was the day their relationship on that mountain changed.

Does Louise have any children?
Yes, Louise and David are parents to daughters Scarlett and Mia Minchin.
Scarlett, 20, and Mia, 17, currently live at home with their ‘rents.
Louise has previously revealed how undiagnosed appendicitis during her first pregnancy left her in agony and fighting for her life, as per The Mirror.
Her waters broke two weeks early and she had to have an emergency caesarean, before later needing to have her appendix removed.
In 2018, Louise said that her daughters aren’t phased by her fame.
She told the Sunday Post: “I’m their mum, that’s the most important thing. I like the fact they see me as a working mum.”
