Who is the Queer Eye fashion expert's husband Rob France?

The show's resident style guru is married and lives in Utah with his hubby, Rob France.

He and the artist tied the knot over 10 years after reportedly meeting on a dating site.

The Yorkshire star, who once described his partner as a "Mormon cowboy" to the New York Post, opened up about his long-term relationship during the first season of Queer Eye, telling viewers: "It was just a case of, ‘you know we’re going to get married one day, right?’ We had just agreed that it was going to happen... and we arranged the date!"

Tan also explained that he and Rob would like six children in the future.

He told the Associated Press: “I feel privileged to be in a position where I get to talk about what I want to do.

"And if I want to have children I want to talk about it and nobody can say it’s wrong and get away with it. [Surrogacy is] a legal option that is available to us, and I will use that.”

Rob, who specialises in "figure illustrations and the occasional abstract portrait" according to his website, seems like a passionate guy who pours his "heart and soul into each piece".

And if he's anything like that in a relationship, we're betting he and Tan are one happy couple!
