We were able to get married in Scotland last November and, apart from close friends and family, no one knew a thing. By contrast, he has since married Italian producer's assistant Livia Giuggioli, and they have a month-old son, Luca.

It would have been great to have had someone at the other end of the tape measure, but it was not to be at that time. By the time Pride And Prejudice came out, we were not a couple.

And when we were making Pride and Prejudice, were the RAF going to do a close formation exercise-bombing raid right over the top of us just as Elizabeth Bennet has something important to say to Darcy?
