Lesley is most known for her role as Brenda Walker in the television show Emmerdale, a local gossip who was presented as Gennie Walker’s adoptive mother (Sian Reese-Williams). The actress has been a member of the ITV soap opera for 14 years; she made her debut in 2008, and the character has been involved in a number of relationships. However, her current one allowed her to co-star with her real-life spouse, which was helpful during the coronavirus outbreak as they weren’t subject to the same limitations as their co-stars.
Who is Emmerdale star Lesley Dunlop married to?
Lesley met her first husband, Christopher Guard, when she was 21 years old. Christopher Guard is best known for his role as nurse Kenneth Hodges in the BBC medical drama Casualty.
After being married, the couple had two daughters together, Daisy and Rosie, but 18 years later, they decided to separate.
Lesley started dating actor Chris Chittell after joining the cast of the weeknight serial drama, whereas Christopher is currently seeing his former co-star, Cathy Shipton.
It appeared to be love at first sight as their relationship progressed and they were wed in 2016.The show’s producers have just started dating their alter egos so the couple can collaborate on projects together.
The couple got married in St. Peter’s Church in Cornwall in 2016 after becoming engaged in 2015.
In front of their friends and family, Lesley tied the knot for the second time while donning an off-white gown and veil.
Chris described how they met, saying: “It was strange. We continued running into one other at work despite the fact that we had never met before.
He said to The Daily Record, “I can’t even remember if I asked her on a date or she asked me, but she is wonderful and we’re extremely happy.
Chris and Lesley do not have any children together, although Chris does have two adult children from other relationships.
The two didn’t need to be two meters apart when filming the pandemic because their on-screen alter egos were engaged in a romance.
Since the couple shared a bubble and lived together, some semblance of normalcy could be seen on the show.
They are not the only married real-life pair appearing in the weeknight serial drama; Jeff Hordley, who plays Cain Dingle, and Zoe Henry, who plays Rhona Goskirk, are both married.
In actuality, Debbie Dingle actress Charley Webb is married to Matthew Wolfenden, who plays David Metcalfe and is Chris’ on-screen son.
Lesley wasn’t too thrilled about their romance being depicted to viewers, either, when her character on the show began to get physical with Eric.
