Lucy Beaumont and Jon Richardson
Lucy Beaumont and Jon Richardson are an actual real-life married couple. They married in 2015 and share a daughter, Elsie, who was born one year later.
When Jon proposed to Lucy, he did so in an unusual (and classically hilarious) fashion, using a butter dish to propose.
Lucy explained: “He gave me this butter dish and I thought, ‘You’ve been on TV for years and you’re giving me a butter dish,’ but inside there was a note saying turn around.”
And there he was, down on one knee.

John and Lucy’s new comedy show

Their brand new series is called Meet the Richardsons and will see the couple play exaggerated versions of themselves on the show.
According to UK TV, Jon said: “I am delighted that Dave have commissioned a new show for me and Lucy. I am less thrilled to have been followed around the house by my wife holding a pen and paper cataloguing every embarrassing moment or mispronunciation to use against me.”
