It's official – Grantchester has been renewed for a 10th season. Following Tom Brittney's departure, Robson Green and Rishi Nair will continue to lead the series, reprising their roles as crime-solving duo DI Geordie Keating and Reverend Alphy Kottaram. 

A mainstay on our screens since 2014, it's hard to imagine the cast living separate lives away from the picturesque village featured on the show. But, of course, they do just that, enjoying quality time with their families and partners. Keep reading for the details on their love lives…

Robson Green

Robson Green is in a relationship with Zoila Brozas, a former Sunday school teacher who he met at the gym in 2016.  

Prior to meeting Zoila, Robson had been married to his first wife Alison Ogilvie for eight years, and his second wife Vanya Seager for 12 years. Through his second marriage, Robson is a proud father to his son, Taylor Seager-Green.

As for Zoila, she was previously married to Revered Geoffrey Short, who alleged that her relationship with Robson began during their marriage, causing their separation. 

Since 2017, Zoila has been living with Robson at his cottage in Hexham, Northumberland. The pair – who keep their relationship out of the spotlight – love going fishing together and Zoila's known to join Robson on location whenever he's filming Weekend Escapes

In 2023, he then posted photos alongside a mysterious blonde woman, whose identity remains private. The actor first went Instagram official with his girlfriend back in March of that year when he shared a series of snaps from their trip to Lyme Regis, which included a sweet photo of the pair locking lips. He wrote in the caption: "Lyme. Photos by B x."

The couple also enjoyed a romantic holiday in Sicily in August and Tom marked their Italian getaway with a post on Instagram.
