Kirstie Allsopp: Kissing Phil Spencer would be like snogging my brother

Despite viewers' suspicions, there's no room for romance between the Location, Location, Location co-hosts

Their onscreen flirting in Channel 4 property show Location, Location, Location has raised a few eyebrows over the years but Kirstie Allsopp says her relationship with co-host Phil Spencer is as far from romance as it could get.


Asked if she and Phil were an item, Kirstie said “I can deny it until I’m blue in the face but it doesn’t convince anyone. It’s a very hard to explain relationship.” 

The presenter, who has two children with her partner Ben Andersen, told Sarah Millican “People often say, ‘You’ve had late nights in hotels [with Phil], something must have happened,’ but we just haven’t.  It would be like snogging your brother.”


Allsopp guests alongside science presenter and diet guru Michael Mosley on The Sarah Millican Television Programme on BBC2 on Tuesday 29 January at 10pm.
