Sarah and Graham tied the knot in 2003 and have been happily married ever since.

The family moved to the 220-acre sheep farm in Somerset after buying the property in August 2018, and have been in the process of renovating it ever since. Recently, the development suffered a backlash from local residents who opposed some of the changes the couple intend to make to the property.

Sarah and husband Graham have been married since 2003

Back in March 2019, Sarah revealed that swapping citylife for the quiet countryside was actually Graham's idea. She told HELLO!:  "Graham's always wanted to move out of London and we've always harboured dreams of giving the boys that Swallows and Amazons childhood idyll."

She added that they wanted her boys to "be children as long as they can".

Sarah hopes to one day see her and Graham's future grandchildren living in their new 220-acre sheep farm, saying: "This house has been the beating heart of our extended family and I even imagined having our grandchildren here."
