It was back in 2013 that Sally and Steve married, with famous friends including Suranne Jones, Gok Wan, Janet Street-Porter, Denise Welch and Andrea McLean in attendance. Sharing exclusive photos from their big day with HELLO!, the actress said: "It was amazing and emotional and lovely to see everyone's faces. There were lots of very kind people there and people I'd known and loved for so long."

In a break with tradition, the couple walked down the aisle together as the ceremony began – with Sally explaining why. "The person who looks after me the most in the world is Steve so it would seem daft if we didn't walk up the aisle together," she told HELLO!

Sally added: "Some girls have been planning their wedding day since they were six, but I was never one of them. And to be honest, I never thought I'd have kids. Because of the career I'd chosen, I never thought it would be possible. And then I met Steve. I wanted to get married and have children with him. It was the man I met who changed everything for me, not the fantasy."

Prior to their stunning wedding in Greenwich, Sally and Steve had welcomed twin boys in 2011. After announcing the arrival of Victor and Louie, The Madame Blanc Mysteries star told The Diary: "Everything is all gorgeous now, and we are just over the moon. They are such confident little boys." Steve also shares two children – Curtis and Kristabel – with his ex-wife, Hayley Marsh.

Sharing an insight into family life and the importance of spending quality time with her children, Sally told Brood Magazine last year: "We're really quite conscious when I’m at home about eating together, we always sit down and eat together every single night. If we're at home, we make sure we all sit round that table! We might only have 20 minutes while they’re eating, but we get to talk to them about their day."

"We also make a big deal of Sundays – I'll cook and their dad will take them to football in the morning with their Grandad, and then they come back and then we all eat together, so Sunday’s are really important for us."
