Derren and his boyfriend both had quite the private life and only made some rare public appearance. Derren does not entertain an Instagram account, so fans do not see them in pictures so often. Moreover, Derren also cleared out the confusion about him owning an Instagram account as fake id were swarming the internet.
I don't have an Instagram account. Think there's a fake one floating about. (Probably well-meaning but would appreciate it being closed.) — Derren Brown (@DerrenBrown) December 1, 2012
Apart from the gala appearance, both were spotted in 2012, when they were caught out on a midnight stroll together as the lovers embrace together to keep warm while heading towards their designated destination.

His first embrace of the gay lifestyle.
Darren Brown, being a magician surely had a long line of girls and mind you; he still has loads of girls who have a crush on him. However, the dreams of all the girls came to an end with his single interview in 2008 where Derren revealed that he was already in a perfect relationship with a man.
'I've been with my partner for about a year and it's perfect.’
His revelation was accompanied by sincere apology to hundreds and thousands of girl fans where he expressed,
'I'm desperately sorry to the girls who may have had a crush on me. If any of them want to try and turn me... no, no, I shouldn't say that.'
That was not all. He even encouraged everyone in being true to themselves. He said,
'Coming out when you are in the public eye is one of those things that isn't an issue to yourself, your friends and your family. But you have to be open and up front.’
'You should always come out; life is so much easier. People generally aren't as bothered by your intimate secrets as you are. If anything, I was disappointed to learn that it wasn't much of a surprise. Possibly my penchant for interior decor had given the game away.'
He told his family and close friends first in 2007 and only came out to the public fans a year later. Derren was not sure about his sexuality at first, and indulged in the Living Waters movement, a church that claimed to bath away the attraction of the same sex saying,
'I did go through an area of the church that was trying to "cure" gay people. It was rather misjudged. I was aware of that and kind of flirted a bit with that.”
Moreover, he added,
'It was more interesting than, "Read your Bible and all your problems will go away." It had a bit of depth and psychology to it, but it was just based on a false premise. When I got to my early 30s I realised that it [being gay] wasn’t going to go away.’’

As Darren and Marc possessed a quiet affair, not much was known about their activities. He said how hard it was to stay away from partner and knowing that just imagine that how Derren would feel like if he and boyfriend went separate ways. He expressed,
“It’s tricky when you’re in a relationship. It’s a common thing with performers – you don’t see your partner for months and then it takes a while, especially for the one who’s been at home, to get used to being back together again. And if big things are going on in your partner’s life and you’re not around to support them, that’s hard too. We’re both very independent and have our own creative things going on, which helps a lot, but we’re going to make more of effort next year to see each other on the road.’’
All this time we could only assume that the couple was still together but the man who once found it hard leaving behind partner while on the road is no more in a relationship.
In an interview with the Guardian, Derren opened up about the night they split. He said,
“Oh, with this breakup? Obviously, horrible night. That thing of waking up …”
However, Derren seems to have split with longtime boyfriend and got the feeling related to it under control. A world-renowned mentalist like him should be able to have control over his emotions no matter how severe they are and by doing so, Derren has maintained his level of professionalism. We hope that he finds love again and that too very soon.
