They met on the Pointless star’s game show House Of Games in 2020, which pits four celebrities against each other in a series of daily challenges.
Ingrid – the daughter of Conservative MP Jo Gideon – attended the selective Tiffin Girls’ School in Surrey and won acclaim for her BBC sketch show Watson & Oliver with school friend Lorna Watson before winning a role in Doctor Who.
Richard told HELLO magazine about their meeting: ‘Ingrid came on House of Games. I knew who she was through social media. We had never met – I had never met her. I had a little twinkle in my eye, I admit.
“She came on, we filmed that day together. Our first date is entirely on camera. After filming I thought, “How can I ask her for a drink, this is hard.”‘
Appearing on the Christmas Day edition of Desert Island Discs last year, he said, “I’m happy with myself, I have these beautiful children, I’ve met the woman I’ll be with for the rest of my life.”
Richard previously said, “I’m happy with myself, I have these beautiful children, I’ve met the woman I’ll be with for the rest of my life.” The couple will be photographed in March.

The host finalized his divorce from his former wife in 2007 and has two children with her, daughter Ruby and son Sonny.
In recent years, Richard has dated jazz singer Sumudu Jayatilaka and Absolute Radio host Emily Dean, though both relationships were short-lived.
