Steph & Dom

MADE A BIG LIFE CHANGE

STEPH: Get­ting into this in­dus­try is prob­a­bly the big­gest change we’ve made. And spend­ing more time in London, so less at our home – which is also a ho­tel – in Sand­wich. We’re em­brac­ing it be­cause who gets to do this at 50? It’s ridicu­lous. It’s what you hope life will be all about and I think if I were younger it would turn my head a lit­tle. We have some ex­pe­ri­ence and re­spect what it is, so we en­joy it a bit more. Imag­ine do­ing this with your best friend all the time; it’s just bril­liant.

HURT SOME­ONE’S FEEL­INGS

DOM: At the last ho­tel, where we filmed our new TV show One Star To Five Star [where the pair try to im­prove other peo­ple’s ho­tels]. I said I didn’t like one of the rooms; it’s a show that calls for hon­esty. Peo­ple go quiet with long faces. My wife isn’t one to hide her feel­ings about some­thing she doesn’t like, which has helped me to feel more at ease about be­ing hon­est with peo­ple.

WERE GEN­UINELY SUR­PRISED

STEPH: When we came back from hol­i­day and dis­cov­ered that our daugh­ter Honor, 13, had Hoovered the whole house. That’s a mas­sive sem­i­nal mo­ment. I sus­pect it was be­cause she was out a bit later than her cur­few.

LOST OUR TEM­PER

STEPH: I shouted at Honor the other day and it was a def­i­nite over­re­ac­tion, so I had to apol­o­gise. She just pushed my but­tons a bit far. I can’t re­mem­ber what it was about. I was just tired and in pain with my back. Dom and I don’t ar­gue – it’s a waste of en­ergy.

TOLD SOME­ONE WE LOVED THEM

DOM: My wife, yes­ter­day. STEPH: He’s very good like that. We do tell each other ev­ery day.
