How did Louis Theroux meet Nancy?

Louis previously opened up on how he and now-wife Nancy Strang first met while talking to Clara Amfo on her This City podcast.

Nancy is a TV Director and previously worked at the BBC. Speaking of how they crossed paths in 2002, Louise said: “I began seeing her around the White City building.

“And I remember thinking ‘wow, she’s beautiful’. She looked sort of like a French chanteuse.

“And she was sort of fashionable, but sort of not aggressively stylish. People didn’t really say ‘hipster’ in those days, but she had a touch of hipster.

“She would go out and smoke cigarettes outside in front of the building.

“I saw her on these little trips. I would pass her in the corridors as she went out to smoke cigarettes.

“Then at a Christmas party, I was introduced and I said, ‘oh yeah, I think I’ve seen you around’. Later on she made fun of me for saying that.”

Louis continued to say how Nancy admitted this was not their first meeting.

He explained: “She claims she once spoke to me in a lift before then and that I didn’t answer, which I find hard to believe.

“But I suppose it’s possible, that I was too aloof. She said something like ‘all these lifts take ages’ or something, and I was like, ‘oh whatever’.

“And so, we spoke for the first time there at that Christmas party. And then it was actually a Friday night.

“I said ‘funny enough, I’m going in tomorrow to catch up on stuff’.

“She said ‘I’m going in as well’. And I think I drank too much.”

Louis then spoke of how he and Nancy might not have been after he went in late the next day.

The documentary maker added: “I went in late. So, when I arrived, there was just a note on my desk like ‘oh, I came and went, but where were you?’.

“I said, ‘Oh, well, let’s try for next Saturday’. We went out for a meal and it all went from there…”

Louis and Nancy went on to tie the knot in 2012 and this year will celebrate their eighth wedding anniversary.

Louis Theroux: Life on the Edge will start tonight on BBC Two at 9pm.
