Earlier this year Sarah has revealed she is in a relationship with a good friend of her late husband Mike and believes he ‘pulled the strings’ to make the romance blossom.
Sarah is now dating ex-British touring car champion Robb Gravett, 65, with the former Blue Peter presenter saying her late husband is responsible for the romance.
Sarah told the My Time Capsule podcast: ‘I sort of know Mike is pulling so many strings in my life.
‘He has undoubtedly been responsible for me meeting my beloved who was one of his oldest friends, who waited a certain amount of time but did keep leaving messages on the answering machine. I thought he was just being kind.
‘Then I got a message almost saying ‘for God’s sake, Greeno, Robb is trying to make contact with you because he actually wants to take you out, not because he’s kind. So will you just get off your a**e and go and answer the phone next time it rings!’
Past: Sarah, known for hosting Blue Peter and Saturday Superstore, was married to BBC TV’s Breakfast Time host Mike from 1989 until his death aged 59 in 2014 (pictured 2008)
‘And lo and behold, a whole new conversation started. I’m sure, and Robb is very sure too, because it’s a very strange situation.
‘I remember being terribly worried and saying to this dear man who I’d known for all these years ‘isn’t it strange coming into the house and seeing all these pictures everywhere of Mike?’
‘He said ‘No, no, it’s not strange. It’d be strange if they weren’t there. And remember, I love him too.”
Mike and Robb headed up the Trakstar team that won the British Touring Car Championship in 1990.
Sarah and Robb are involved in land transportation firm Z Charge, which was set up last year, according to Companies House.
She also works with Mike’s company Flying TV which provides aerial television footage.
