IT’S refreshing to see that, stripped of all the fame, money and tabloid gossip, celebrity couples are just like other people – you only have to look towards All Star Mr & Mrs to see that much is true.

They bicker about leaving cups around the house, whose turn it is to wash up and even, in the case of former Deputy Prime Minister John Prescott and his wife, apparently have full-blown arguments about dumping that space-consuming one-time-used wedding gown (although their marriage has withstood the arguments, so there’s hope for us).

Yes, host Phillip Schofield has heard it all, with actress Sian Reeves even joking that she and her partner fell out of love after appearing on the show. And tonight, the series returns with more celebrities and their better halves to see how they fare against the seemingly simple questions delving into their relationships.

Mr and Mrs is one of a handful of revamped television series of a bygone era.

Having first appeared on screens in 1963, it’s enjoyed an array of hosts but for viewers of a certain age, it will be best remembered for the late Derek Batey’s contributions.

Other famous faces have come and gone since, including Julian Clary and Fern Britton alongside Schofield.

After Fern’s departure from the newstyle All Star Mr and Mrs, Schofield has gone it alone. Even he couldn’t dodge the probing questions of the game show, as he took part with his wife, Stephanie, with Stephen Mulhern stepping into presenting duties.

That brings us up to tonight, and the return of the series – its fifth. Coronation Street’s Hayley Cropper had endured all kind of heartache in life until she met mild-mannered husband Roy. Thankfully, actress Julie Hesmondhalgh has enjoyed a little more happiness in real life, but how well does she really know hubby Ian Kershaw?

Joining them in the series opener are Hairy Biker Dave Myers and his wife, Lilianna, and McFly singer Tom Fletcher and his wife, Giovanna.

The celebs are letting us in on their annoying habits and darkest secrets in an attempt to win for their chosen charity.
