Dr Hilary's wife Dee has spoken of her delight that her husband has become the 'pandemic pinup'.
Dr Hilary has played a vital role answering questions and reassuring the public during the coronavirus pandemic, but it's not just excellent medical prowess his fans admire him for...
Many GMB viewers have dubbed Hilary, 67, the 'pandemic pin-up', and his wife Dee Thresher, 49, has spoken of her excitement about her husband's new status.
She told The Sun: "I love that people are admiring his looks. Good for him. He’s 67 and still turning heads.
"It’s quite funny because he’s been doing his own make-up and dressing himself instead of having a stylist, so he’s not even looking his best."
Dee has been married to the 'delicious doctor' for four years, with the couple meeting in 2008 after he split from his first wife.
She is a personal trainer, and has created a number of fitness workouts for celebrities including Natalie Cassidy, Charlie Brooks and Letitia Dean.
Dee has also worked as a TV fitness expert, which is how she met Dr Hilary.
She said: "I was the GMTV fitness expert helping people get in shape for summer and he was the doctor giving health advice.
"We were filming in Spain and really got on.
"A year later we were both at a friend’s wedding, re-connected and we’ve been together ever since."
Speaking about her husband, Dee said: "Of course I think he’s very attractive and he’s such a lovely man. He is charming and caring.
"I admit I tease him about it. He just rolls his eyes and gets straight back to work."
