When did Dom and Steph get married and do they have children?

Dom and Steph married in 1998 and have two children together - Max, 18, and Honor, 15.

Why did Dom and Steph leave Gogglebox?

In October 2017 Dom and Steph revealed they would no longer be appearing on Gogglebox, citing they had 'said all they needed to say'.

They told The Sun at the time: “We think it’s important that everyone gets their chance to be on Gogglebox and give their opinion, and having been on it from the beginning we felt like we’d pretty much said all we needed to say, and we knew what we were going to say.”

What is Dom Parker’s net worth?

It’s unknown how much Dom Parker is worth, but it was reported back in February that he and Steph are planning to sell their manor house hotel for £5m.

The couple snapped up the Grade I-listed boutique hotel for £2.6 million in 2004.

They then spent a further £2.5 million renovating The Salutation, but now want to sell the property.

Dom, 55, said: "We're looking for £5 million for the purchase price. We ideally want to sell the building.

"It has been our lives, our home, our joy - our stage for Gogglebox."

The Salutation, which is situated in Sandwich, Kent, was built in 1912 and is spread over 3.7 acres and boasts 17 bedrooms, as well as a 60-cover restaurant.

Dom added: "It is a very important part of the past 14 years of our lives, and it is such a beautiful building.

"But we are just too old and exhausted, and don't have the energy to run it any more."

Meanwhile, The Sun also previously claimed that families on Gogglebox get a monthly allowance of £1,500 between them.

This would have been split between him and Steph when they were on the show.
