“I remember the first time I saw him. He walked into the newsroom, and I was sitting at my desk at the other end.

“I remember exactly what he was wearing: a pale blue linen suit.”

She added: “I thought he looked nice. Tall, handsome and all that but I thought the suit was a bit flash.

“Then, because he was a newbie, I was assigned the job of looking after him.”

Richard and Judy married four years later in 1986 and have been married for 34 years.

The couple went on to have two children together Jack, 34, and Chloe, 32.

Richard and Judy have in the past spoken of their secret to a lasting marriage.

Richard told The Mirror: “Everything between us gets resolved, we don’t let things fester.

“We’ll hammer out a negotiated peace and move on. And I also think it’s two strokes of luck, one following the other.
