Mark, known as The Beast on The Chase, and Hayley spoke about their one year anniversary during an appearance on Loose Women earlier this month.

The pair, who met through their work, said the fact they didn't see each other too often meant they felt their bond was stronger.

He said: 'Because we live quite a bit apart - I live up in Sheffield, Rotherham, she's a Chelsea girl - we tend to look at our diaries and see if we can sync up together.

'The good news is we see each other every few weeks, but we make the most of it when we're together so we get the best of both worlds.'

Hayley added: 'The good news is we see each other every few weeks, but we make the most of it when we're together so we get the best of both worlds.

'We don't see each other and then I'm like: "Actually, we're really looking forward to coming together..."'

Hayley playfully elbowed Mark before finishing: '...And not sharing our chips!' And the audience roared with laughter.'

Prior to their anniversary celebrations Mark spoke to The Sun about what he had planned for their date on the special day.

He said: 'We found a bench in a peaceful spot by the beach and spent hours talking and getting to know each other, so we’ve decided to go back to celebrate our anniversary.

'As luck would have it, there’s a rather nice Beefeater near to where her parents live. They already know Hayley’s order — nachos and chips.'

Hayley said at the time she could not wait for the date and would make their anniversary 'last a month' if she could.

The pair had been dating since early 2023, with Mark previously admitting he was a 'very very lucky man' to be with her.

Sources claimed the star wooed the TV presenter on a string of dates after being 'friends for some time', following his split from his wife Katie in 2020.

Hayley previously admitted to Good Morning Britain: 'I don't watch The Chase, no offence, but I'm never in at 5pm.

'I did come and watch Beat The Chasers and he got everything right and I was like, "Wow that's really sexy".'

Mark admitted the relationship had its challenges due to the distances between them, with him living in Rotherham, whereas Hayley is London-based.

Speaking about the long distance, he said: 'We consult a lot with our diaries, so for example we've both worked out that we are in Southampton next month for a few nights, so we've arranged a few dates while we're down there.'

Hayley added: 'I think it's healthy sometimes. When you meet someone, it's too much too soon but we both really look forward to seeing each other in a few weeks.'
