What has Nicola Walker said about her husband?

Nicola did previously open up about her wedding to Barnaby in an interview, stating candidly that it wasn't very romantic! She told Radio Times in 2018: "I don't know if I should tell the truth – it doesn't sound very romantic. I find the whole ceremony of marriage a bit like going to work. It's a public performance. Though we had a really lovely day because we didn't do that. We had a tiny family thing."
