Strictly drama: Who is Pearl Lowe? Who is she married to?

(L-R) Daisy Lowe and Pearl Lowe attend as  Pearl Lowe launches her latest clothing range for Peacocks at Mayfair Hotel on November 10, 2011 in London, England.

It's emerged that star of Strictly 2016, Daisy Lowe, had an affair while filming the series and fans have turned to her mother Pearl for answers.

Strictly Come Dancing has always been a hotbed of forbidden flings and fledgeling romances and it's not hard to see why with drop-dead gorgeous celebrities brushing shoulders with drop-dead gorgeous pro dancers. 

Whenever a new series of Strictly arrives, along come rumours of secret affairs and this year is no different.

However, it isn't one of 2019's contestants that's currently causing a stir. Instead, it is 2016 contestant Daisy Lowe and pro dancer AJ Pritchard who are the centre of attention after reportedly sharing a secret love affair during the series two years ago. 

Naturally, with the attention on Daisy, her mother Pearl, famed for her work in the fashion industry and has come back into the minds of the public and with love affairs on the agenda, so too has Pearl's husband.

But just who is she married to?

Daisy Lowe's Strictly fling with pro dancer AJ Pritchard emerged on October 7th, 2019 a full three years after the model appeared on the popular Saturday night series. 

What's bizarre in this instance though, is that AJ wasn't actually Daisy's dance partner during the 2016 series but their paths clearly crossed during Daisy's eight-week stay on the show.

Usually when relationships on Strictly emerge, they usually come out much almost immediately so it's impressive that Daisy, now 30, and Aj, now 24, kept their fling under wraps for so long.

Who is Pearl Lowe?

Pearl Lowe is Daisy's mother. 

Not only has Pearl enjoyed a brief music career, singing in the bands Powder and Lodger, she has also become a leading light in the UK fashion industry.

The 49-year-old's most prestigious work in recent times was a dress collection which, in 2017, went on sale in the up-market shops of Harrods and Selfridges.

Who Pearl Lowe married to?

Pearl Lowe has been married to Danny Goffey since 2008.

Goffey is the drummer and backing vocalist for the band Supergrass. 

In the 11 years that have followed, Pearl and Danny have had three children together, two sons and a daughter.

Danny Goffey is not Daisy Lowe's father, however, as she is, in fact, the daughter of Gavin Rossdale British alternative rock band Bush.
