Gregg Wallace has said he is in the process of planning his fourth wedding next year.

The MasterChef judge told the Daily Mirror that he is going to get hitched to Anne-Marie Sterpini, 28, next year and already has preparations under way.

He said: “Next year is all about the wedding. I’ve got the venue, I’ve got the pianist, I’ve got the girl, but I have not got the ring.”

Gregg’s first wife, Christine, left him after six weeks of marriage in 1991, he married Denise in 1999, but they got divorced in 2004, and he was married to third wife Heidi for just 18 months from 2010 after meeting her on Twitter.

He took part in this year’s Strictly Come Dancing, but was the first celebrity to be voted out of the competition, alongside his professional partner Aliona Vilani.

Gregg, 49, told the Daily Star Sunday before he took part: “My girlfriend was happy for me to do it, but she’s not sure how she’s going to feel about me spending so much time with another woman.

“She’d be happy if I was partnered with a man. One thing she’s already told me is that she can’t promise she won’t get jealous.”

He also told the Sunday Express: “We have a nice relationship and she knows I wouldn’t do anything, but she said, ‘I can’t promise that I won’t be jealous. You would be jealous if I were with a young man’.”
