The tv presenter Catherine Gee, widely known for presenting the shows Escape to the Country and 60 Minute Makeover, is one of the most sought-after tv presenters who is also famous for the BBC show Through the Keyhole. The mother of two currently lives in London with her husband Derek Gee, a Scottish artist.
Gee’s Husband And Children
The presenter is an extremely reserved person when it comes down to her personal life. She has rarely mentioned anything about her children or her husband except for a couple of times on social media.
Diving into her Twitter account, we can learn few details of her family members whatsoever. Replying to a Tweet of 2018, Gee mentioned that her husband was Scottish, and both of them liked listening to classical country.
Per her husband’s Twitter bio, Derek is a Scottish artist associated with the Royal Scottish Society of Painters in Watercolor, the Society of Scottish Artists, and the Society of Animal Artists. And, he is also well-recognized for his wildlife paintings.
Although it unclear when the couple took their vows, it must have been more than three decades since her son is already thirty-seven years old. Responding to a confused Twitter user on her Twitter thread of 2018, Gee mentioned that she adopted her son Peter after getting married.
Her son Peter, who received his education from Plumstead manor School and Bromley University, currently works at a local charity shop in Woolwich. Although Gee’s wiki reports she has two children, the details of her other child is unknown.
