Dr Hilary is married to his third wife Dee Thresher since 2016. They worked together on GMTV’s Bikini Diet segment in 2008 and had a platonic relationship as Dr Hilary was still committed to his second wife. However, things changed soon after. 

According to Dee, 

“I was the GMTV fitness expert helping people get in shape for summer and he was the doctor giving health advice. We were filming in Spain and really got on. A year later we were both at a friend’s wedding, re-connected and we’ve been together ever since.”

Surprisingly, Dee is also famous and talented in her field as a personal trainer. She had designed workouts in workout DVDs of Natalie Cassidy, Charlie Brooks and Letitia Dean. 

Now, what does Dee think of Dr Hilary’s charming young look?

“I love that people are admiring his looks. Good for him. He’s 67 and still turning heads.”

“Of course I think he’s very attractive and he’s such a lovely man. He is charming and caring.”
