Davina, who will present new show Five Minutes to a Fortune on Channel 4 tonight, admitted that her husband of 13 years, Matthew, put a stop to her ever taking up gambling after a trip to a casino together on their honeymoon.
Davina, 45, revealed, ‘When we were on our honeymoon, my husband Matthew suggested a night in a casino. Now Matthew’s the kind of guy who would get ten £5 chips, play ten games and then leave. I, on the other hand, insisted we put them all on red. ’
The TV presenter spoke of her ‘addictive personality’ before adding, ‘It didn’t take long for Matthew to realise he needed to get me out of there! So that is why I must never step into a casino again.’
Looks like anyone hoping to see Davina taking part in one of her own shows might have a long wait on their hands…
Five Minutes to a Fortune starts tonight on Channel 4 at 5.10pm.
