Gladiators legend Diane Youdale proposed to wife in her kitchen

The 53-year-old star - who was known as Jet on the popular 90s show - admitted she and Zoe Gilbert, 48, both had a glass of wine when she popped the question, and they have since tied the knot.

In a joint interview on ITV's 'Lorraine', Diane said: "I asked four months in. It was boring - we were in the kitchen with a glass of wine. I just said shall we do this? I think if you know you know."

Zoe told how she first approached Diane in a Tesco car park because she thought the TV star was "the most beautiful woman I’d seen".

She said: "Well, in short I had seen her in the car park and thought she was the most beautiful woman I’d seen, then we exchanged names."

But Zoe didn't realise at the time that Diane was Jet from 'Gladiators'.

She said: "The first three times I didn't even know who she was. It didn't click.

"I got home and I was like, 'Where have I seen this person from?' I felt sure I'd seen her on ... social media ... my God, it's Jet!"

Zoe admitted she used to fancy Jet when she watched the show in the 90s.

She said: "I did have a crush on you, like everybody else."

Last month, Diane confirmed she and Zoe got married in secret.

She told Closer magazine: "We're married! We kept it very, very quiet. Literally nine people on the planet knew.

"When you're in the public eye - whether it was like me and it was literally last millennium, or in this day and age on social media - things just run away with you.

"I'm in my 50s now and we're both very private people and we thought, 'You know, let's just keep this thing quiet.'

"We've not let even our nearest and dearest know because we wanted to keep it really tiny."
