Who is Grant Shapps' wife Belinda?

She attended King David High School before studying at Leeds Metropolitan University.

Since 2009, Belinda has been a partner at AuctionGirl.co.uk – which promises users to "turn their clutter into cash".

She was by Grant Shapps' side when he was diagnosed with Hodgkin's lymphoma in 1999 and underwent chemotherapy and radiotherapy.

The treatment was successful and the politician finished his final round of chemotherapy the year after.

In 2012, Mr Shapps hailed his wife for her support during that time, telling the Guardian: "She said to me, you can't die, we've got too much to do together.

"She was brilliant."
