Gogglebox: 'It's very annoying' Kate Dalton reveals husband Matt's very bizarre, secret habit!

Gogglebox's Kate Dalton has revealed husband Matt Dalton has one of the most bizarre habits we've ever heard of. 

We all know that being at home is where we can truly be ourselves and Matt certainly likes to take full advantage of that. 

While the couple have been together for 28 years, it seems Kate can't quite get her head around one of the father-of-two's quirks.  

Kate has revealed to LifeStyle that Matt can be really irritating when he watches TV in their lounge room.

"Matt licks Pizza Shapes and then throws them across the room to our dog, Ace," she reveals. 

"He has him trained like a performing seal! If he waits too long, the dog starts barking impatiently which becomes very annoying!"

And that's not the only thing that Matt does that gets on poor Kate's nerves - as he reveals his romantic gestures need a little work.

"Kate banned me from buying me flowers after my first effort was a bunch of Carnations and my second effort a Lemon Tree," he says.

But while the Daltons may not go by the conventional forms of love gestures, that's not to say they don't have their own version of romance. 

"Grand Final Day 1991 was our first ever date," Kate says, "And, Matt gave up celebrating Hawthorns AFL victory to go out with me!"

But after that, dates weren't quite as straightforward.

The couple reveal that years ago Matt was a teacher and he once disguised Kate as a sports teacher and took her on a school excursion to the movies and then McDonalds. 

"We made sure we didn’t have 29 third wheel's on our next date," Matt jokes.

And now, 28 years on with two daughters, Holly and Millie, the couple spend time together planning their next holiday or curled up on the couch watching spy thrillers or soppy chick-flicks, which Matt is always the first to cry in. 

But when it comes down to what keeps their marriage enduring 28 years, their answers are simple:

"Have a good sense of humour about yourself and your relationship, so you aren’t precious and you can laugh at yourself," says Matt. "Much better than getting all uptight and stressing!"

And for Kate, it's about looking after yourself, so you can look after the other: "Respect each other and maintain an independence." 

And maybe don't buy any more Pizza Shapes!
