The couple met during their university days and wed in 2001

They first met while undergraduates at Cambridge University and according to Olivia, it was love at first sight. "When he walked into the room, I just went, 'That's him!' Mind you, I suppose if he hadn't wanted me, then I might have gone, 'That's him!' at someone else a week later," the star previously told The Telegraph.

She added: "We were 20 and he was also an actor. If you meet at that age, then you're fine. For me it was thunderbolts straight away."
