The comedian revealed: “[David is] married to one of my second cousins. I saw him at a funeral, over the other side of the grave.”
David opened up about how he met his wife on his website, saying: “Lorne is half African and half Welsh and hails from Tiger Bay, just like Shirley Bassey.
“Lorne is very glamorous, a lovely striking lady, and she has more talent in her little finger than I have in my whole body!
“When I met Lorne Lesley I was working in the textile industry, but I was ready for a change of career and as I got to know Lorne better we decided I should become her manager.
“Together we travelled the world. It was during this time that my interest in antiques began to flourish.”
Dickinson’s Real Deal airs on ITV on weekdays at 2pm.
