Daniel Craig and Rachel Weisz

We know only the bare basics of their love story, and that’s how the stunning couple, Daniel Craig and Rachel Weisz, like to keep it. Secrecy about their personal life, they say, is the most substantial reason for a successful marriage.

We admire this power couple most because at the core of their relationship is their willingness to stay together against all odds!

Elton John & David Furnish

Now hailed as one of the best-selling musical artists of all time, Elton John did not initially experience the same kind of luck in his love life. Briefly married to a woman in the ’80s, it wasn’t until the dissolution of that union and Elton coming out as gay that he found real love.


Enter David Furnish, a former advertising executive and Canadian filmmaker. Not only was David already an affluent and grounded individual, his unfazed attitude towards Elton’s fame also endeared him tremendously to the musical superstar. The loving couple split their time between raising their family and running their countless philanthropies to aid various causes dear to them.

She is the bond girl who stole our hearts in ‘The Spy Who Loved Me,’ and he was the drummer in the world’s most famous music band. But when Ringo Starr and Barbara Bach got together, their combined wealth and international stardom led many people to believe that their romance would not last.

Benedict Cumberbatch and Sophie Hunter

Benedict Cumberbatch met his perfect match, Sophie Hunter, on the sets of Burlesque Fairytales in 2009, but it took a good four years for both to realize they could mean more to each other. Within two years from then, the world discovered the seriousness of their relationship via a post on The Times announcing their engagement the old-fashioned British way!


After flooring us with that news, the couple wed in 2015, and since then, we can often spot the Sherlock Holmes star indulging in PDA with his pretty wife! Marriage sure suits the pair who seems head-over-heels in love even after eight blissful years of togetherness!

Jeremy Kyle & Vicky Burton

Jeremy Kyle, known for unraveling family dramas on his show, found his own storyline taking an unexpected twist. It all began when Vicky Burton entered his life as the nanny to his children with ex-wife Carla Germaine. While Vicky’s initial role was to care for the kids—Alice, Ava, and Henry; it was the post-nanny phase that truly ignited their love story.


In February 2020, a new chapter began as Jeremy and Vicky welcomed their first child together. Their journey culminated on a memorable October day in 2021 when they finally tied the knot at All Saints Church in Windsor, Berks.

Fiona Bruce & Nigel Sharrocks

‘BBC News at Ten,’ reporter Fiona Bruce would have never thought that her short-term job at an ad agency would make her fall for the then director of her company, Nigel Sharrocks. Yet, undoubtedly, the fall was good, and since their marriage in 1994, the couple has been going strong and spending quality time with each other in Belsize Park, London.


Interestingly, just like his wife, Sharrocks, who is a chairman of ‘Digital Cinema Media,’ is not a small name in the advertising world either. Yet, he doesn’t mind celebrating his wife’s popularity over his and prefers keeping a low profile which makes us think it could be one.

Susanna Reid and Dominic Cotton

Susanna Reid, a former “BBC Breakfast” broadcaster, is now a contestant on “Strictly Come Dancing.” The 51-year-old host has made a name for himself in television and journalism, having interviewed some of the world’s most powerful leaders and celebrities. Reid has long been considered a style icon. Her love life has kept her in the spotlight as well. Reid has two sons and a daughter named Sam, Finn, and Jack from her marriage to Dominic Cotton, another well-known writer. Dominic Cotton was introduced to this well-known television personality in 1998.

Sophie Raworth & Richard Winter

Being a prominent face of quite a few news programs like ‘BBC News at Six’ and ‘Watchdog,’ it’s safe to say that journalist Sophie Raworth has become a regular household name for English people. However, behind her successful career, she has an equally thriving married life with her real estate agent husband, Richard Winter.


Since Raworth avoids speaking about her personal life in public, so we’re not sure how they met, but reportedly they have been friends for five to six years in the past and even dated for a year before exchanging vows in 2003. It seems that keeping her love life private has certainly worked for the reporter and her almost 2-decade-long marriage proves it.
