They’d been dating just six months, and their marriage garnered much tabloid attention.

Mainly because Billie was just 18, while Chris was 35.

They separated in 2004, and were divorced by 2007.

They didn’t have any children together.

While speaking with her former Doctor Who co-star David Tennant she opened up about her whirlwind marriage.

She told David Tennant Does A Podcast With, Billie said: “I went and got completely hammered for three years with Chris Evans.

“So much fun – just living very hard.

“But with a lot of love and a big dose of curiosity and just, yeah – amazing time.”

So is she friends with David Tennant?

Very much so. Doctor Who fans were obsessed with the Time Lord and Rose’s on-screen chemistry and the actors maintain a close friendship to this day.

He has previously credited Billie with helping him come to terms with fame, telling her: “I’ve often said in the intervening 15 years that entering into that madness… and particularly that loss of anonymity, which I had not really experienced before… because I had you to go on that journey with, I think I survived it much better than I might have done.

“You knew what it was to lose that layer of skin. It was very helpful to be on that journey with someone who understood what it was.”

What happened between Billie and Laurence Fox?

Billie married actor Laurence Fox in 2007, and they went on to have two sons together – Winston, 13, and Eugene, nine.

In early 2016, Laurence confirmed they had split, and said no third party was involved. They officially divorced in May 2016.

A stressful legal battle over the kids ensued.

Laurence previously revealed how the divorce and part-time separation from his sons left him feeling suicidal and suffering from extreme anxiety.

Billie refuses to discuss him in public – silence which perhaps says a great deal.
