BBC's Universe: Brian Cox's wife who you may recognise from Channel 4, Sky and Radio 5

Professor Brian Cox will be back on our screens tonight as he returns for the new BBC series Universe. But the British physicist, who is a former musician, is one half of a celebrity couple with his wife Gia Milinovich.

The 53-year-old, who lives in Battersea, has been married to US science presenter Gia Milinovich since 2003.

She has previously said that her initial attraction to Brian began when she saw he had a CERN email address.

The pair have a son called George who is 12 years old and Gia has a son called Moki from a previous relationship.

Brian has starred in several shows including Doctor Who but his other half also has an extensive list of programmes she has presented.

Gia, 52, presented Channel 4’s Demolition Day alongside Ed Sanders from 2003 until 2006.

She also appeared on Sky Sports Ice Warriors (1995), BBC Four’s Electric Dreams (2009) and Charlie Brooker’s Screenwipe (2008).

But Gia began her career on a British Television network called The Children’s Channel.

She has accrued a number of credits to her name, presenting on Sky Sports, Nickelodeon, LBC and BBC Radio 5 Live.

She continued: “I started to morph from Gia Milinovich, independent woman with her own life and separate bank account, into ‘Mrs Brian Cox’, then into ‘wife’.

“Pre-fame, I was asked for my opinions; now, I’m asked what Brian thinks.”

Gia added: “In order to remain sane, I need to keep my own identity and life separate from him.

“As Brian has made such a popular and critically acclaimed series, I am nervous about venturing back into television myself.
