At an early age, his father would teach him a magic trick before bedtime every night. Then he began performing in public during their family holidays at Butlin's Minehead in Somerset.

Both the boyfriend-girlfriend duo are aficionados of privacy, but that wasn’t the only thing common between them.

His girlfriend showcased her love for him as she made an exception by talking about her partner on 28 May 2009. Speaking to Birminghammail, she said,

“He’s adorable; I love him to death.”

However, having spent a long-term relationship with his girlfriend/ partner, the pair broke up with each other in 2011.

Not only that, but the former partners also keep in touch with each other and exchange pieces of advice.

Despite both the pair not wanting to share their personal life information, when it came to their bonding, they have been making exceptions.

With Barton explicitly revealing her love for him, Mulhern also spoke about his relationship with his ex-girlfriend post-split in 2018.

While talking to Thesun, the famous host of BGMT revealed his close relationship with Emma. He said,

“I am an incredibly plain eater – I’ve never had a curry, I’ve never tried sushi, it’s embarrassing. The person who takes the mick out of me the most is Emma Willis. She calls me ‘50 shades of beige’. But I’m very close to Emma – she is the kindest and most honest presenter around. She is also amazing with advice. If I had a problem, I would absolutely listen to her.”

It seems like the pair once destined to be husband and wife has instead blossomed into partners in crime!

Why Stephen Mulhern Isn’t Gay & Married!

Although Stephen rarely talks about himself, he revealed in February 2017 that he hadn’t been on a date in four years. His last known relationship had been with EastEnders actress Emma Barton, who plays Honey Mitchell.

Apart from that, he has also previously opened up that he has had his heart broken ‘too many times’ which is why he thinks it’s better not to talk about his dating life. He said,

“I keep myself to myself out of work. Mostly I just like to chill out and be on my own.’

There have been several gay rumors about Stephen, but he’s never discussed the matter. The rare insights to his dating life suggest that he is indeed in search of a wife and not a husband.

However, he’s reportedly single, but the chances of him dating someone shouldn’t be discarded as he could be secretly dating.
