Salmon and his wife Fiona share four children, Rudi, Eden, Sasha, and Ben.

In October 2021, Salmon filed a formal complaint with the Metropolitan Police after his son was allegedly dragged from his bike during a stop and search. He claimed his son was stopped by police, searched, and fined £50 even though six other cyclists had passed through a red light. 

He also tweeted about the incident on 5 October 2021 and wrote, "Just got message my son got stopped searched, fined at 8.30am for running red light on his bike. 6 cyclists and he's the only one stopped, searched & fined. Not condoning his alleged infringement just tired of having to recalibrate his sense of injustice."

Infected With Covid

In January 2021, Salmon was infected with COVID-19, along with his wife, Fiona Hawthorne, and their four children. However, they got through it and praised the doctors for saving their lives.

Salmon claimed he "wouldn't be here now" if he hadn't been rushed to the hospital after contracting Covid in January 2021. He became ill on New Year's Eve after his entire family contracted coronavirus. He said he felt "like he was slipping away" as the virus quickly took hold.

As for his wife, she revealed that in 2019, she was diagnosed with interstitial lung disease, which required her to use an oxygen tank. Because of her condition, which damages the lining of the lungs and makes it difficult for oxygen to enter the circulation, she was put on steroids and underwent chemotherapy.

"I felt flattered and had a thumping headache. Although it exacerbated my condition, I came through it. I'm finding ways to live with it positively. I don't want my illness to define me," Hawthorne explained in an interview with Hello in 2021.
