Keith and Marj live in Margate. In an interview with The Sunday Times in January 2021, The Great Pottery Throw Down judge said his actual home is on the top floor of a tower block in Margate. He added: “My partner, Marje, and I love brutalist architecture. The building looks like a crack den from the outside, which we like, but inside it’s spotlessly clean. It was built in 1963 as a luxury holiday complex around the time package holidays took off, so it became a white elephant. Our flat hadn’t been occupied since the day it was built. We moved in six years ago after the building was renovated.”
In a 2013 interview with Whom You Know, Keith said about his wife: “I am proud of my wife for living with a complete workaholic and supporting me in my mission.”
