Patrick Grant: The Great British Sewing Bee star talks romance after split from designer

Patrick Grant is best known for his role as one of the judges on The Great British Sewing Bee, making his show debut in 2013. The BBC star, who also works as a fashion designer, rarely discusses his personal relationships.

The 49-year-old opened up about being considered a “weird crush” by fans on social media, as he admitted he is flattered by the compliment.

Speaking in an interview last year, Patrick addressed his love life and said he would be happy if a relationship came along.

Patrick, who split from his partner, the accessory designer Katie Hillier, four and half years ago, gave an update on his relationship status.

Addressing being considered a sex symbol, he commented: “I’m happy to be a crush figure, but I’m not sure why the ‘weird’.

“I know moustaches aren’t to some people’s tastes, but I’m not such a terrible-looking human, am I?”

He added to The Times: “It’s all flattering.”

The Great British Sewing Bee judge went on to discuss his home life and said he is not actively seeking a relationship.

“If a relationship comes along that works with the tightly constrained amount of time that I have, of course I’d be happy,” Patrick commented.

“But it’s not something I’m actively seeking.”

Patrick added: “Community Clothing has such potential to be a huge force for good in an area of great deprivation that if I don’t do anything else with the rest of my life I’ll be happy.”

Community Clothing was established by the BBC star in a bid to create sustainable and ethical men and women’s clothing.

Patrick and his girlfriend of eight years, Katie, split up back in 2016.
