MARTIN Clunes is well-known for his shows including Doc Martin and Manhunt.

But behind the scenes, he lives a quiet family life in Dorset with his producer wife Philippa Braithwaite.

Who is Martin Clunes' wife Philippa Braithwaite? 

Philippa is a 58-year-old producer and executive.

She is known for producing Gwyneth Paltrow's 1998 movie Sliding Doors and has worked on a couple of her husband's TV shows, Doc Martin and Manhunt.

The first film she directed was Staggered which came out in 1994, when she was 30.

Philippa likes to keep a private life, as there is very little information about her floating around but what we do know is that she and Martin live on their farm in Dorset with 130 acres to play with.

When did Martin Clunes and Philippa Braithwaite get married?

The couple met through work and married in 1997.

Martin told The Mirror: "We met while working together, it's the way it's always been for us and it's absolutely fine."

He added: "Yes, it's nice spending a bit of time on the farm on my own, but all I know is that I'm happiest when Philippa is by my side.

"We usually cook together. When we have a roast on a Sunday, for instance, I'm the one in charge of the meat and the gravy!"

Martin decided to pop the question while he was doing a holiday programme and he managed to fly Philippa out to the Hawaii shoot.

Talking to Irish News, Martin recalled: "It was the longest we'd been apart, and I missed her so much that I proposed, while she was really jet lagged and in such a strange place."

After the proposal the couple tied the knot in 1997 with a small ceremony, followed by an after-party at The Savoy hotel in London.

Martin was previously married to his wife Lucy Ashton from 1990 to 1997.
