Mark Bonnar and Lucy Gaskell married in 2007

The pair, who tied the knot in December 2007, also both starred in Casualty! They reportedly met four years earlier in 2003 during a production of Chekhov's The Cherry Orchard, which was Lucy's professional stage debut.

Speaking about the early days of their romance, Mark told The Radio Times: "We didn't have any stage time together at all, but, you know…"


The couple have two children together 

They have two children together, a ten-year-old daughter named Martha and a six-year-old son named Samuel and being a dad is something Mark always wanted.

"[Having kids] was late in the day for me. I met Lucy when I was in my mid-30s and we had eight years before we had children," he confessed.

"My parents always said to me: 'If you're happy, we're happy' and I'm going to try to do the same with my kids. As a parent, your children's happiness is the most important thing. I mean, it's a whirlwind from the moment you get up to the moment they go to bed. But then you cry and have a bottle of wine and watch some Bake Off."
