Sharing success with his wife or still searching for a perfect partner?
Having reached the age of 49 years, the man has never publicly revealed anything about his married life nor his dating series. However, in an interview posted by chillisauce.co.uk on 29th November 2010, Tim disclosed about being unmarried but gave a slight hint of dating and getting engaged to a woman for not more than three days. He said:
“No, I made that decision one day, and I got down on one knee, and I said, “Will you never marry me,” and luckily for me they said “yes.” No, I’m joking. I did once propose to someone, and it was a disaster, I was engaged for three days, and then I broke it off. Anyway, let’s keep it light.”
Tim has kept his personal life and professional life apart. Despite breaking the Guinness World Record in the year 2004 and achieving Dave Awards twice, it's strange to see the man walking in the single version without any women on his side.

Currently, an acknowledgment may be the star is secretly dating and is even is married but has not revealed it to the public, as he wants to keep his lady away from the annoying paparazzi. But as per the current status received from the source, he is unmarried, but no confirmation or news regarding his dating, girlfriend and affairs have been identified to date.
