ITV is back with a brand new crime drama starring Noel Clarke.

In the five-part series, Noel plays DC Martin Young, who sets up an observation post in the home of a single mother to keep tabs on the prime suspect in a missing person case.

It’s described as “a compelling, tense, claustrophobic thriller that turns the spotlight on the observer rather than the observed”.

But who is Noel Clarke and who is his wife? Here’s what we know…

How old is Noel Clarke?

Noel Clarke was born on 6 December 1975, making him 45-years-old.

Born in Notting Hill, West London, Noel studied Media at the University of North London, and worked as a personal trainer before going on to take acting classes at London's Actors Centre.

What is Noel Clarke’s net worth?

Noel Clarke is thought to be worth around $3 million (£2.8million).

Opening up about his latest role, Noel told Heart.co.uk and other press he was over the moon to be offered the part of DC Martin Young.

He said: “I was attracted to the part because there was a stillness and real calm about the writing.

“I’ve never had this opportunity to play a role like this, it was a no brainer for me to be able to do it because in real life I am the complete polar opposite.”
