Fred, who has never been married, lives with his fiancée, whom he calls “Fruitcake” but whose name he never reveals.
French-born Fred is best known as the amiable maître d’ on the hit Channel 4 show First Dates.
He was born and raised in Limoges in western France and knew from an early age that he wanted to work in the hotel industry.
Although Fred was very reserved about his love life, he did open up about whether he is in a committed relationship or not.
In July 2016, the French native admitted that he had never been married before, adding that the closest he had come to marriage was his 12-year relationship with the mother of his two children, known in public simply as Alex.
In January 2018, he announced on his social media account that he was in a new relationship with a woman who had nicknamed him Fruitcake, and the couple got engaged in March 2020.

Last year he insisted he would never do I’m A Celeb because of his culinary tastes.
He said: “I don’t think I would do that as I’m a celebrity. I wouldn’t be very interested in eating a camel’s anus or anything like that.
“I know I eat frogs, I’m French, but at least these frogs are cooked!”
