Where did Paul and Kellie meet?

Kellie met Paul when they starred in a play together. Paul was 24, and Kellie seven years his senior at 31.

And the stunning blonde admitted that it was the age gap which caused the pair to briefly split – before the very happy couple tied the knot in Trelill, Cornwall, in 2014.

Talking about their brief split, the actress said in 2016: "Reality kicked in. I was 31 and wanted to have kids, and Paul was 24 and didn't at the time. I felt it wasn't fair on Paul – I worried he'd resent me."

But Kellie – who admitted she "loved Paul" before they had even kissed – couldn't tune out her passion for her man for long.

She added: "After a bit of head space, I realised I was cutting my nose to spite my face. I thought – what are you doing? Take your foot off the gas."
