Is Judge Rinder married?

In 2013, Robert married long-term partner and fellow barrister Seth in sunny Ibiza. The civil ceremony was officiated by Robert's close friend and Hollywood movie star Benedict Cumberbatch. At the time, the Sherlock actor, who met the TV favourite when they were students at the University of Manchester, said it was a "very private, lovely thing to beasked to do". Although the ceremony was a low-key and private affair, Robert did reveal some details about the special day after some photographs were leaked. The barrister explained: "We got married, it's no secret, but no one was supposed to know – somebody put the pictures on Facebook."
