How long have Emmerdale stars Matthew Wolfenden and Charley Webb been married?

Matthew and Charley have been married for two years.

They first got together 13 years ago, but tied the knot in February 2018 after tricking their friends and family into thinking they were attending a 30th birthday party for Charley.

Matthew recently shared an emotional picture of the moment he and Charley announced their secret wedding.

The photo shows that even their two children, Buster, 10, and four-year-old Bowie didn’t know what was really going on.

Buster and Bowie’s big surprise

Matthew captioned the snap, showing him and Charley hugging: “One of my favourite pictures EVER.

“The moment we announced to a room full of our friends and family that the ’30th birthday party for Charley’ they were at, was actually our wedding.

“Buster and Bowie had absolutely no idea. The boys’ faces caught on camera are priceless.

“Lockdown’s not too bad with these lot and the new addition of Ace, obviously.”
