When did Grace Adams-Short and Mikey Dalton meet?

Back in 2006, Grace only 20 when she entered the Big Brother house all those years ago, and the former performing arts student, from Plymouth, caught the eye of fellow Liverpudlian Mikey, then 23.

They were on Big Brother 7 – the infamous series which which saw stars such as Pete Bennett, Nikki Grahame and Aisleyne Horgan-Wallace grace our screens.

Following a 30-day stint on the show from May to June of that year, the unlikely pair struck up a romance almost straight away.

The odds were stacked against Mikey and Grace, who were thrust into the public eye the second they were evicted from the house, and did back-to-back photoshoots and media appearances talking about their relationship, as all the ex-Big Brother housemates did.

It didn't take long for Mikey to pop the question, and the young couple went on to wed in 2009.

A wedding broadcast on television

In October 2009, it was revealed that Mikey and Grace had tied the knot in a ceremony held in Grace's hometown of Plymouth, and were filmed by a TV crew.

Local Plymouth newspaper, The Herald, spoke to a 23 year old Grace, who said at the time: "We got engaged after four months, which may sound quick but we got to know each other so fast on the show, so it felt right for us."

The star added: "But we've taken our time ever since – I only want to do this once, so I want it to be perfect."

Both Mikey and Grace had their big day caught on camera by the Wedding TV crew, who had been filming a show called Help! I Need A Wedding Entertainer in the run-up to the wedding.

Three children and a fourth on the way

Three years later, Mikey and Grace welcomed their first child, a daughter named Georgiana.

Born in 2012, she is now nine years old, and is the spitting image of her mum.

Their son, Spencer Michael, five, followed in 2015, before youngest daughter Allegra Portia, three, came into the world in 2018.

And now, Grace has revealed the incredible news of a fourth tot to OK!: “People think we're mad to have a fourth, and maybe we are, but we couldn't be happier."

"It's been a pretty good pregnancy, when you spend all day running around after the kids, you don't have time to think about anything else, they've kept me more than occupied.

"We're all delighted and can't wait to meet our new little one!"

Due on January 8, Grace explained that she and hubby Mikey won't be finding out the baby's gender, and is "hopefully having a water birth like I did with the other three.”

Home life in Liverpool

Last year, the happy family moved into a stunning new home in Liverpool, where they have been based since they left the BB house.

As for their day-to-day? The couple have their hands full as parents, but Grace runs a successful performing arts school in the northern city, whilst her other half runs an advertising company.
