Konnie Huq has told how she “just knew” that Charlie Brooker was her Mr Right.

The former Blue Peter presenter and the Black Mirror creator tied the knot in Las Vegas in 2010 after a whirlwind romance, and they now have two young children together.

The pair had been friends for a long time before they started dating.

Huq told the Mirror Online that she didn’t start to think of Brooker in a romantic way until a phone call where they chatted “about everything and anything” for hours and hours, and she realised that she didn’t want to hang up.

After that their romance developed.

"It was just a natural feeling that I had when I thought about our future together,” Huq said.

The 44-year-old went on: “They always say that you 'just know', and to be honest, that is really how it was with me and Charlie.

“I just knew.”

The couple first met when Huq appeared on an episode of Charlie Brooker's Screenwipe in 2008.

They remained friends after she was on the show, then got together early in 2010.

Just nine months later the pair exchanged vows at the Little White Wedding Chapel in Las Vegas.

Huq gave birth to their first child, a son named Covey in March 2012. The pair welcomed their second son, Huxley, in February 2014.

Writer and satirist Brooker, 49, has previously said he did not know that he wanted a family until Huq came along.
