Richard tends to keep a low profile when asked about his love life in interviews, but he has spoken of his failed marriage in the past, reports The Express.
Osman, 50, married his ex-wife in the late 1990s and they divorced in 2007. They share adult children Ruby and Sonny with his ex-wife.
After separating from his wife, the presenter admitted that he feared the family situation was “horrible”, but was relieved that everything was going well.
He told The Times: “When my partnership broke I was like, ‘Oh my God, this is going to be awful.
“I saw my kids all the time. I quickly realized it wasn’t going to be the same, which is a tremendous relief.
“They know I love them and I tell them all the time, which rigidly annoys them. But I’ve never been told.”
In 2018, Richard started dating jazz musician Sumudu Jayatilaka, but their relationship ended two years later.

The father-of-two was asked about their breakup by the press at the time but chose not to talk about it.
When asked if the romance described in his book The Thursday Murder Club was related to his breakup with Jayatilaka, he replied, “I’d rather not go into all of this.
“We’re not together, so I’d rather not upset her at all.”
He then embraced single life during the pandemic, saying, “Being single in your 40s is really great. From my perspective, it’s wonderful.
“It’s probably easier to be a single man in his forties than a single woman.”
Reports from earlier this year claimed he was now dating Doctor Who actress Ingrid Oliver, who has appeared on her BBC quiz show several times in the past.
She is believed to have moved into his home and is now his “home girlfriend”, according to some reports.
The couple met through mutual friends and have known each other for years, and according to sources speaking to the Mail on Sunday, Richard has told his friends that she is “the right one for him.”
