One of the best cricketers during his time, Mark Nicholas's boat has already sailed off! He's happily married to Kirsten Northcott since 2006. 

The controversial pair grabbed much attention in those days because of their secret affair. Mark was still in the relationship with his long-time girlfriend Sarah, while Kirsten had just divorced her husband of five years in 1999.

Kirsten was married to hotshot millionaire Richard Northcott and shares three children together. 

When the secret affair was revealed, Sarah who ran a knitwear mail-order business was heart broken. Sarah found Mark's relationship after the silent phone calls Mark had been receiving while both were living together in their home in Chelsea.
