Since hanging up his boots and retiring, rugby star James Haskell has bounced around the media world but might be overshadowed by his wife’s famous parents.
Chloe Madeley, 34, James’ wife, married the former England rugby union player in 2018 but her parents have set the bar high for a life in front of the camera.
Chloe is the daughter of famous Good Morning Britain pairing, Richard Madeley and Judy Finnigan.
Now finished in their careers as presenters of the show, Richard and Judy, a showbiz power couple, have moved on to other ventures.

Judy Finnigan has appeared on the panel of Loose Women and Richard has carried on with small scale presenting jobs.
It seems the couple have passed the baton on to their daughter, Chloe, and her partner James.
The couple have appeared on TV countless times and their time in the media has included presenting roles, guest appearances in game shows, podcasts, and even newspaper columns.
Chloe, who works as a presenter, journalist and model, has appeared on Dancing on Ice, Channel 4’s The Jump, and had a stint with her father, Richard Madeley, on Pointless Celebrities.
Since leaving rugby, James has made a name for himself as a TV personality. He has appeared in I’m a Celeb… and was the fourth person voted out of the show.
James even had a stint at becoming a professional MMA fighter but had his first fight postponed because of the coronavirus.
