Meet your host Peter
I'm the Edinburgh host and one word sums me up pretty much: triathlon – triathlon – triathlon. I have competed for age group team GB on a few occasions and raced in over 50 triathlons from sprint triathlons to a couple of Ironman's'. Anything to keep me fit and healthy!
Meet your host Lucy
Nothing makes me happier than seeing the spark between two loved up people. I honestly believe I have the best job in the world helping people find their happily ever after.
