Zoe and Jeff are long-standing members on hit soap Emmerdale, and off-set they own a gorgeous family home in the Yorkshire Dales.

While it might be expected that the actors fired up their romance on the Emmerdale set, Jeff and Zoe actually attended the same drama school, and the rest is history!

Taking about their relationship in an interview with Soaplife magazine in 2011, Jeff gushed: “We met at drama school in 1994. I saw Zoe and realised she was the girl for me."

The sweet pair first got engaged after Jeff proposed to Zoe on the day she won an award for Best Actress in a Leading Role at the Manchester Evening News's theatre awards.

The pair then got married in 2003 but the ceremony was kept very low-key, and they’ve since welcomed two children.

Jeff became iconic Yorkshire Dales character Cain in the year 2000 and he was he was joined just one year later by Zoe, as she took on the part of Rhona in 2001.

While Zoe’s wasn’t a regular character, she became more of a permanent role eight years later when she reprised the part of Rhona.

And the star doesn’t struggle with having hubby Jeff so close by, both at home and work.

“It’s important to have a laugh in-between takes so upsetting stories don’t get you down too much. Working on the same show as Jeff, who plays Cain Dingle, also helps because if one of us is having a bad day then the other will completely understand," Zoe once told The Sun.
