Matt Baker surprised his wife Nicola Mooney in an unearthed episode of BBC’s The One Show after he dished on their marriage. The Countryfile presenter discussed how the couple met, during an interview with singer Billy Ocean on an episode of The One Show in 2014, where he told viewers they “would not believe” the tale he was about to share.

Matt, 44, tied the knot with his childhood sweetheart Nicola in 2004 and the couple have been married for over 18 years.

Speaking with his former co-host Alex Jones, 45, the presenter revealed how veteran singer, Billy Ocean, was connected to his relationship with his other half.

Alex told the singer: “I’ve pushed him into it slightly but Matt really wants to ask you something.”

Billy Ocean asked: “What’s that?”

Matt recalled: “Well, this is the thing Billy, back in the day before all of this TV lark started, I was a member of a disco dance troupe called Disco Inferno.”

The host added: “17 years ago that’s where I met my wife. And your song Love Really Hurts Without You that became our song.”

“And you’ll never believe this, but tonight is our 10th wedding anniversary.”

The Caribbean singer congratulated the couple as Matt’s story was met with a round of applause from the studio audience.

But to Billy’s surprise this was not the end of the tale as the BBC presenter’s wife was stood in the small crowd.

Matt said: “Nicola is over there because it is the only way she gets to see me because I’m working, so I did just wonder as the guitar is there would you play just a little chorus.”

Billy agreed, saying: “I would love to.”

The singer picked up his guitar and began to serenade the couple with a small snippet of his popular song.
