When did they get married? 

The happy couple got married in Scotland in 2016.

Speaking about her marriage, she told The Jonathan Ross Show: “I had to get married in Scotland, because he refused to wear a kilt south of the border.

"I was determined, if I was going to get married this guy had to be in a kilt.

"So we went to Scotland where he was prepared to wear one. He won’t wear one south of the border, he thinks it’s naff. He’s got a very good undercarriage."

The married couple lived a unconventional life together at first, as they both decided to live separately after they wed.

They waited until they bought their first house together in November 2020, before moving in together.

Prue’s reasoning behind this was the fact they could have their "personal space" and then come together to enjoy "quality time together".

In an interview with The Telegraph, Prue expressed how happy she is with their decision to finally move in together, she says: "John calls our new home our 'retirement home'.

"We have to face the fact that we're going to live together for the very first time. It just feels like the right time now."

Do they have kids?

Prue has two kids from her previous marriage to South African author Rayne Kruger.

The pair were married for 28 years, from 1974 until his death in December 2002, aged 80.

Rayne fell ill with emphysema, which caused a lung infection.

The pair had a son named Daniel, who is now a Conservative MP, and also an adopted daughter Li-Da.
