It was during a stint at Blackpool's theatre that Russell met Doug who was working as a stagehand behind-the-scenes. The pair were both 21 at the time and have been together ever since.

Making a rare comment to the Observer about his partner in 2006, Russell said: "We have a lot of Jupiter in the marital segment of our charts. We have a laugh. And he's lovely, Doug. He's a very kind person."
