Jake Wood is best known as playing love rat Max Branning in EastEnders, but in real life he's happily married. Who is Jake Wood's wife Alison Murray? Details revealed.
EastEnders character Max Branning is often seen shacking up with various female characters in the soap.
However, 42-year-old Jake Wood, who plays Max, is a far cry from his womaniser character.
Jake has been married to 45-year-old Alison Murray for many years, and here's all we know about the actor's wife.
The couple are believed to have met 23 years ago.
Speaking about their long-lasting relationship, Jake has previously said: "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.
“We always have a date night once a week when we just hang out, catch up and talk. It’s a chance for us to check in with one another to make sure we’re still on track.
“We’re not soppy but we know we love each other a lot. Alison means the world to me. I feel incredibly lucky to have been with such an amazing woman for so long and I’m looking forward to the next 23 years.”
Jake and Alison live in a converted schoolhouse in Hertfordshire.
The couple have been married for the last sixteen years.
They chose to renew their vows in a mini private Glastonbury earlier this year, with 220 guests in attendance.
EastEnders stars Scott Maslen (Jack Branning), Steve McFadden (Phil Mitchell), Lorna Fitzgerald (Abi Branning), Jo Joyner (Tanya Branning), Jacqueline Jossa (Lauren Branning) and her husband Dan Osborne were all present for the re-nuptials.
Jake and Alison have two children - a son named Buster, aged 9, a daughter named Amber, who is 12.
