Catchphrase star and TV favorite Stephen Mulhern is one of the UK’s most beloved presenters.
The star began her career working in children’s television and has since climbed the showbiz ladder.
He is now ranked as one of the top comic book hosts in the nation appearing on shows like Ant and Dec’s Saturday Night Takeaway.
Mr. Mulhern is not only a popular household name, but he also has close friendships with other TV stars.
However, he tends to keep his private life to himself, The Mirror reports.
Stephen has literally grown up on screen, but only shares small glimpses of his life away from TV on social media, keeping his personal roster incredibly secret.
Here we take a look at the life of Stephen Mulhern from his rise to fame to his luxury home and his showbiz friends.
Stephen gained his interest in comedy and magic from his father, who taught him tricks when he was 11, and it was from there that his television career began.
He soon became a household name when he landed the role of host of Saturday Showdown on CITV alongside Holly Willoughby.
The beloved TV star also worked alongside Fearne Cotton on the children’s show Finger Tips and hosted the hit children’s show Tricky TV for over a decade.
She eventually moved away from children’s television in the 2010s when she hosted a Dancing On Ice spin-off and made regular appearances on This Morning for specialty segments.
Arguably Stephen’s biggest role to date is his stint on Catchphrase, which showcased his exceptional talent and charisma.
This role led to even bigger and better jobs, including his spot on the BGT spin-off Britain’s Got More Talent.
Though he has left those roles behind, Stephen still works alongside his showbiz friends Ant and Dec on his iconic Saturday Night Takeaway.
There’s no denying that Stephen has worked incredibly hard to get to where he is today, and if it weren’t for his love of magic, his life might have taken a completely different turn.
With fame comes fortune, and it appears that Stephen has invested his hard-earned money in his lavish estates.
The 44-year-old is a multi-homeowner, with estates stretching across the UK with apartments in Benfleet Essex, Leicester and Barnet, as well as his lavish home in London.
In 2019, Stephen welcomed fans to his not-so-humble abode that boasts incredible interior design and an open-plan layout.
Stephen took his followers on a tour of his grand home as he began in the living room decorated in rustic tones and brown leather sofas.

The TV star proved she spent her winnings well by showing off the room’s gigantic flat-screen TV and pristine furnishings.
Meanwhile, Stephen’s kitchen features a huge marble island surrounded by a series of plush leather chairs.
The presenter has erected a custom bookshelf that has been built into the walls of his home.
After sharing a glimpse into his personal life and his beautiful home in London, Stephen showed that he has a keen eye for interior design and home furnishings.
secret love life
Over the years, Stephen has been incredibly quiet about the status of their relationship.
The last time he spoke about his love life was in 2018, when Stephen admitted that he enjoyed a brief romance four years before that and had been single ever since.
Though Stephen refrains from discussing his love life, the star opened up about why he thinks he’s been unlucky in love in a previous interview with Celeb Now.
The TV favorite said he felt his career had gotten in the way of finding someone special to settle down with.
“The last time I dated was about four years ago,” he explained.
“That makes me sound so sad! I need a life. I need to stop working so hard.”
In 2008, Stephen was linked to EastEnders star Emma Barton, who plays Honey Mitchell in the BBC soap.
The pair were said to have become close while starring in the pantomime production of Snow White in Birmingham at the time, but neither star confirmed the rumours, although they were seen together for three years.
When their relationship ended, never admitting they were an item, Stephen said his time with Emma came to a “natural end”.
Stephen hasn’t been linked to any other potential love interest since his split from Emma.
