Luisa Zissman has kept her romance with husband Andrew Collins out of the limelight since they met.
But during Wednesday night’s upcoming episode of The Mummy Diaries, the 32-year-old star is set to reveal the pair first laid eyes on each other when the Irish millionaire bid on her at a charity auction, where they raised over £3,000 for charity.
The former Apprentice contestant made the candid confession while supporting her close friends Sam and Billie Faiers and their mother Suzanne Wells at a similar event.

The mother-of-three – who raises daughter Dixie, 10, with her ex-husband Oliver Zissman and Indigo Esme, three, and Clementine, two, with Andrew – is seen giving singleton Suzie some words of encouragement.
Sitting down at the dinner table at the plush event, Luisa asks Suzie: ‘Are you nervous?’
‘I am! I can’t even drink, I’ve been sipping!’, she replies.
Luisa enthused: ‘You know I put myself up for auction the night I met Andrew.’
A shocked Billie interjects: ‘What? Is that how you met?’

‘My husband bid on me at an auction, and then I married him! You might meet your dream man!’, Luisa enthused.
The pair met at an event for Shooting Stars Chase – a children’s hospice which provides end of life palliative and respite care to parents across the UK.
It relies solely on money raised to continue providing the services, and Andrew’s bid helped raised an incredible £3k for the cause.
Speaking to camera later, Sam discusses her mum’s romantic life and her hopes for the evening ahead.
She says: ‘The dream would be for a man in his fifties to stand up, in a lovely suit, crisp shirt. Someone that she fancies.
Her friends didn’t know: A shocked Billie interjects, ‘What? Is that how you met?’
‘But I wouldn’t put it past my dad to start bidding for my mum. She would not want to go on a date with dad, but it would be quite funny.’
Later during the dinner, Luisa tells Suzie: ‘You want someone that’s got a bit of life about them, you don’t want someone who needs to take Viagra!’
Luisa officially divorced first husband Oliver Zissman in 2014 following five years of marriage, two years after she caught him cheating on her.
She began dating Andrew shortly after her marriage broke down and he popped the question in October 2014 on a romantic trip to Paris.
The business tycoon got down on one knee with an eight-carat diamond ring during an intimate candlelit dinner with a view of the Eiffel Tower.

The pair then tied the knot in July 2015 and have since welcomed their two daughters.
She previously confessed she was bored with pretty boys and had chosen personality over looks with Andrew.
‘My boyfriend now is lovely. He’s good looking to me but I didn’t pick him on that. He’s kind and considerate and respectful.’
