Sophie Ellis-Bextor and her husband Richard Jones have detailed the sweet story of how they met back 20 years ago – comparing the tale to ‘an American movie’.

The couple, who tied the knot in 2005, met three years prior when the bass guitarist auditioned to tour as part of his wife-to-be’s band – and got the gig.

Recalling that there was ‘an electricity’ between them as they toured together, Richard admitted: ‘I was like, wow, look at this ethereal, beautiful woman.’

Now parents to five boys, the duo still appear just as smitten as they often share sweet family snaps to social media.

Despite meeting in 2002, Sophie and Richard remained friends to begin with and didn’t struck up a romantic relationship until later.

During a recent interview with The Guardian, the duo recalled their journey to love after meeting at the musical auditions

Laughing as she shared the first thing she ever said to her husband, the Murder On The Dancefloor hitmaker admitted it was ‘nice amp’, in reference to his music equipment. 

And while it may not seem romantic, Richard now has that exact phrase in his studio in the form of a neon wall light. 

Connection: 'There was a sort of electricity, something in the air. It was weird. It was like "Oh - and you're both on the same page",' said Richard of the lead-up to their romance

Despite the pair both being in respective relationships upon meeting, the guitarist shared that his first impression of Sophie was ‘wow, look at this ethereal, beautiful woman that is way more beautiful in real life than I expected.’

And explaining that they remained close friends while touring together, Sophie and Richard then recall feeling a ‘connection’ with one another as their feelings shifted from friendship to romance.

‘There was a sort of electricity, something in the air. It was weird. It was like “Oh – and you’re both on the same page”,’ said Richard.

The now-parents then ended their respective relationships before meeting back in London following the tour.

‘It was like in an American movie. We wondered if we would feel the same and it was exactly the same,’ said Sophie.

The pair then welcomed their first child, Sonny, now 17, just eight months later, which they recall being ‘full on, but positive and warm.’

Sophie and Richard went on to welcome four more sons after; Kit, 13, Ray, ten, Jesse, six, and Mickey, three.

‘We have moments where we annoy each other, don’t get on, all the normal stuff, but we’re both mindful to just be kind to each other,’ added Richard of their relationship now.
