In 2016, Martin split up with actress Amanda Abbington, with whom he shares two children, and appeared in a number of shows with, such as Sherlock.

Back in 2018, Amanda opened up about her struggle to cope with the collapse of the relationship.

She told Red Magazine she thought Martin was the love of her life, but their relationship broke down and led to “one of the darkest moments” of her life.

She added: “We still love each other – even if we’re not in love with each other – and neither of us sees our relationship as a failure.

“We had 16 great years together and have two fantastic kids. We still talk and we still give each other advice.”

In a 2017 interview with Radio Times, Martin similarly described how the ex-couple were on amicable terms.

“We split up a while ago,” he said. “I mean, we’re very friendly and it’s all lovely and cool. Yes, we’ve not been together for a while. I mean, we did the series not together.

“I’m all right, yes. I mean, we’re honest to God doing it [separating] in about as civilised a manner as I’ve ever heard of, you know.

“I love Amanda’s work. I think she’s brilliant as an actor and she’s brilliant as a woman and, yes, I love her. I will always love Amanda, but, yes, we’re… you know, that’s what’s happened.”

Mr Selfridge star Amanda is now engaged to Britain’s Got Talent star Jonathan Goodwin, and recently revealed that he is paralysed for life after an appearance on America’s Got Talent went disastrously wrong.

Instead of landing on the air mattress that was supposed to break his fall, he ended up sandwiched between two cars while clad in a straightjacket, which then burst into flames.

Speaking on restaurant critic Jay Rayner’s Out to Lunch podcast, Amanda said it was unlikely Jonathan would ever walk again.

She continued: “He’s paralysed now he’s in a wheelchair. Unless there’s a kind of stem cell surgery or that thing that Elon Musk is designing with the little chip, he’ll be like that forever.”
