Who is Jake Wood married to?

Jake has been married to Alison Murray, 51, for the last 20 years.

The pair met when Jake was 23 and they tied the knot in 2001 before renewing their vows in a mini private Glastonbury in 2017.

The couple share two children, Amber, 15, and 13-year-old Buster and live in a converted schoolhouse in Hertfordshire.

Explaining their secret to a strong marriage, Jake told OK! magazine in 2017: “We obviously love each other a lot but also we’ve always wanted the same things.

“You’ve got to work hard at it and you’ve got to talk. Alison’s taught me that.”

Do they have any pets?

Jake and Alison are clearly huge animal lovers from their Instagram.

The family have two adorable dogs named Buddy and Chip along with a cat called Roxy.
