Mark Curry, a former Blue Peter star, is ‘jittery’ about marrying his husband.
When Mark Curry married his partner, Jeremy Sandle, in 2008, he had a “jittery” concern.
Mark Curry, 60, previously expressed his “nervousness” and “jitteriness” before marrying his longterm companion Jeremy Sandle in 2008. From 1986 to 1989, Mark was the host of the children’s television show Blue Peter.
I’m a worrier by nature.
Before they married, Mark and Jeremy had been together for ten years.
The pair exchanged vows while wearing matching yellow roses on their lapels in front of 50 guests, including his ex-wife and daughter.
Marble Hill Mansion in Twickenham, South West London, hosted the service.
Mark kept his sexuality a secret during his stint on children’s television for fear of jeopardizing his job.
As a result, Mark referred to his wedding as his “coming out party” at the time.
He expressed the following about the wedding: “I’m a worrier by nature.
“Even putting on a dinner party makes me uncomfortable, so I was nervous about how things would go.
“Fortunately, there were no mishaps or problems.”
During the event, Kathryn Apanowicz, the late Richard Whiteley’s partner, delivered a poem.
Mark had this to say about their relationship: “Jeremy and I are both mature individuals who sincerely care for one another and have decided to formalize our relationship only for legal reasons.
“Our families are completely behind us.
“We didn’t need to make any type of public statement of our love.”
Jeremy, Mark’s husband, was previously married for 16 years and had two children with her.
Former Mud bassist Ray Stiles and Ian Parker of newly revived Sixties group The Hollies performed during the celebration at Caffe La Fiamma, near Hampton Court Palace.
Jeremy claims he has known he is gay since he was a child, but was told to keep it hidden.
He stated, ” “I’d known I was gay since I was in my late teens, but a seasoned ex-presenter encouraged me to keep quiet when I was in my early twenties.
“People who mattered knew I was always honest to myself.
“However, I was constantly concerned that if the public found out, I would lose my position.”
“But, luckily, times have changed, and no one is punished today for being who they are,” he concluded.
