Vigil and Endeavour star Shaun Evans has won an army of fans for his portrayal of young Morse in the ITV period crime drama, but is he married?
Did you know he had a very famous girlfriend in the early 2000s?

Shaun has always kept his private life very private.
“I just like to do my job and then go home and carry on with my life.”
But one past ex meant that he was involved in a high-profile romance.
From 2003 to 2007, the star and Irish singer from The Corrs, Andrea Corr, were a couple.
Where did Andrea and Shaun first meet?
However, even when they were together the two kept their romance under wraps.
The pair met on the set of film, The Great Ceili War.
The Daily Express claims that Andrea – consistently voted one of the most beautiful women in the world – told friends she thought Shaun was “absolutely gorgeous”.
Shaun called her “stunning” and “talented” in return, the newspaper said.
After the break-up in 2007, Andrea told The Irish Independent: “I don’t look back and think, ‘Oh God, I wasted four years.’ I do have faith. I would not step into marriage lightly.
“I am not married by my own choice, not because no one wanted to marry me.”
However, Andrea went on to tie the knot in 2009 to Irish powerbroker Brett Desmond, and together they have two children.
Is Shaun Evans married?
That’s the million dollar question, as Shaun is extremely tight-lipped about his private life and gives social media a big swerve.
It’s unclear if Shaun is currently in a relationship.
Who does Shaun Evans play in Vigil?
Shaun plays Elliot Glover, who is stationed on HMS Vigil. In his own words: “Elliot Glover is the coxswain on HMS Vigil. It’s a role that sits and liaises between the highest-ranking officers on board and the rest of the crew, so Glover has to straddle both worlds on the submarine.”
What do we know about series eight of Endeavour?
Shaun and the rest of cast are back on screen with the eighth series of the hit crime drama tonight.
The first episode takes place in 1971.
A death threat to Oxford Wanderers’ star striker Jack Swift places Endeavour and his team at the heart of the glitz and glamour of 1970s football. It is available to watch on ITVHub.
“After our longest suspension, all at #TeamEndeavour are delighted to have been returned to duty,” said series creator, writer and executive producer Russell Lewis.
A new series of Endeavour begins on ITV at 8pm tonight, while Vigil episode 4 airs on BBC One at 9pm.
