Scott says one way he likes to treat his family is by cooking breakfast for everyone when he’s home in Sydney. 

‘I’ve got menus: crêpes, omelettes, baked eggs and beans in the oven’ he told the publication. 

Elsewhere in the interview, the television host says it was love at first sight when he met Ann in 1989, while he was travelling the country as a carpenter and she was working as a teacher.

‘Ann was very beautiful, but I also could see she was nice. That night, I told Mum I’d met the girl I was going to marry’ he said.

‘I’d like to say I had a romantic story about my marriage proposal, but we were living together, and I said I’d like to get married, and Ann agreed.’

The couple soon started a family and have three adult children, Charlie, 26, and twins Bill and Sarah, 23.

Speaking to Woman’s Day recently, Scott described Ann as a a ‘great mum’ and says she takes care of him, too. 

‘She looks after me and has done since the day I met her. I think [she] looks after me too well when I’m home,’ he said. 

‘I was away from her for a couple of months while I was in Melbourne, so I had to fend for myself. I didn’t have all those little nice things in the cupboard like cakes and biscuits’. 

Scott added: ‘I can’t see any part of my life without her. We’re joined – that’s what the secret is. I think you need that feeling to have a successful marriage.’
