BBC Six Nations: Gabby Logan’s life in South West London with famous husband who competed against her on Strictly

17

The Six Nations continues this Saturday (February 12), and as England, Wales, Scotland, Ireland, France and Italy vie for supremacy, we at home will have beloved pundit Gabby Logan as our guide.

The 48-year-old has had quite a life off-screen. Back in 2001 she tied the knot with ex-Scottish rugby legend Kenny Logan, and together they share twins Reuben and Lois. The family live in leafy Kew, South West London. Gabby has been involved in the world of presenting for almost 30 years now.

She started out as a presenter on Sky Sports in 1996 but left two years later to work for ITV. She co-hosted the celebrity diving reality show Splash! on ITV, alongside Vernon Kay and Olympic diver Tom Daley from 2013 until 2014, while from 2007, she started presenting for BBC sport and fills in for Gary Lineker on Match Of The Day when he’s unavailable.

Gabby and Kenny competed against each other on Strictly

She was a contestant on Strictly Come Dancing in 2007, and interestingly enough so was Kenny! Kenny was partnered with Ola Jordan, while Gabby teamed up with James, Ola’s husband. Kenny came fifth, and Gabby came… twelfth!

Gabby also hosted her fair share of athletic events. She’s covered the Olympics, the London Marathon, the Commonwealth Games and the Aquatics World Championships.
