Beth’s husband Andy

Beth Tweddle’s husband is finance director Andy Allen. The couple tied the knot in a gorgeous ceremony in Beth’s hometown of Bunbury, Cheshire, in 2018.

On June 9, 2022 Beth posted an anniversary message to Andy celebrating four years of marriage:

Beth revealed that her and Andy got engaged in Brazil while she was working as a BBC commentator for the 2016 Olympics in Rio. She said they “bounce off each other” and act as a “balance” in their parenting styles.

She added: “I very much like a routine and to know what is going on whereas Andy is a lot more laid-back.

“If he sees me getting a little bit stressed out about things, he will kind of put the logic into it and then I am like: ‘You are so right.’ He is so logical we balance each other out.”
