The maths whizz revealed that her boyfriend of four years teases her about her addiction to US TV shows.

“I like American late-night shows, like Trevor Noah, John Oliver and Bill Maher – Ive got them all on series link,” she began.

“Pasha finds them funny, but I guess because hes from Russia, where theyve had such bad politics in their time and couldnt do anything about it.”

Continuing she added: Hes kind of switched off to all the politics, so I tend to watch them by myself.

And on Pashas decision to upgrade to a 55 inch TV Rachel joked: “I had one a quarter of the size that I thought was perfectly fine.

“But he said We need a bigger one, and then he said, Now weve got a TV, we need speakers.”

The presenter also revealed another TV moment that she struggles with, confessing that she finds it hard to watch Pasha dancing with other women on the popular BBC Series.

“Its left its mark. It just makes me feel nervous – so I make myself busy when its on. I leave Pasha to it,” she said.

Got him to the chapel! This boy would go anywhere for Freddie ?Bohemian Rhapsody was INCREDIBLE ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Was my pleasure to represent @grassrootsoccer yesterday, who were given the special honour of an early movie showing in aid of their brilliant work for HIV-positive youth around the world – partly funded by the Mercury Phoenix Trust @The_MPT, which honours Freddie Mercury's legacy. 27 years after his death, its amazing that science has turned HIV and AIDS from a death sentence, to harmless with the right treatment. Just need attitudes and stigma to go to eradicate it for good, and GRS are doing great things with that aim. Cant stop singing Queen today, and I now need a house with rooms for all my cats… and loads of cats ?? Such a good film! ??????⚽? #bohemianrhapsody #queen #freddiemercury #brianmay #grassrootsoccer #GRS #adolescenthealth #charity #soccer #football #hiv #aids #mercuryphoenixtrust #moviepremiere #mpt

“Were both vegan so we loved vegan week,” she told the publication.

And despite their minor domestic disagreements it seems that the duo couldnt be happier together.

Speaking to the Express previously Rachel said: “I am in love now. I dont feel I have to get married. I dont think I need that pressure any more.

“I dont worry about getting married or whether he is taking a long time in the morning or whether he has done the dishes.

“That does not really bother me in the long term. I feel settled.”

Rachel was previously married to Jamie Gilbert for 16 months, after dating for nine years.
