10.02.2024 - 15:17
Bradley Walsh has become a staple on our TV screens over the years, having fronted numerous hit TV shows including The Chase, Blankety Blank and Gladiators. The 63 year old star boasts an incredible career in showbiz, just like his wife Donna Derby, who is a star in her own right. Donna is a choreographer and former professional dancer, who once starred in a music video for Robert Palmer's hit Simply Irresistible.
Donna began dating Bradley in 1992 and the pair went on to tie the knot in 1997.
The couple's son, Barney, 26, was born later that same year. Donna has appeared as an actress and dancer in a number of TV shows, such as The Kenny Everett Show and The Russ Abbot Show. For two decades, she worked as a choreographer and judge for the Miss World beauty pageant.
She was one of the models selected to appear in the music video for Simply Irresistible in 1988. Donna sports a bodycon dress and red lipstick as she dances behind singer Robert Palmer in the hit video. The mum-of-one, who is believed to be around the same age as Bradley, tends to keep out of the spotlight in contrast to her husband and son, who regularly appear on TV together and now host BBC's Gladiators together.
Bradley has spoken about his relationship with Donna on a handful of occasions over the years, and previously revealed that they were first introduced by fellow actor and comedian Brian Conley. During an appearance on The One Show, Bradley recalled: “He introduced me to my wife. She was a commercial TV dancer and worked on one of Brian’s shows.
