Mick Hucknall and Gabriella Wesberry
Simply Red's Mick Hucknall married Gabriella Wesberry in May 2010. They have a daughter, Romy, who is now eight years old.
Last week, in an interview with The Times, Hucknall spoke about his marriage, “Abandoned by his mother Maureen when he was three and brought up by his dad Reg, Hucknall didn’t trust women. He even says it today: ‘I could get a woman into bed but after that, in terms of holding down a relationship, I was stuck. I thought I’d be let down. Now I wonder why that was, eh?’”
Our latest as-yet-unreleased qualitative research with young people shows that many are worried about repeating their parents' relationship mistakes, and that this in turn colours their relationships. Look out for our full findings in the coming months.
