Emmerdale's Paddy Kirk actor Dominic Brunt is married to another real life soap star – but do you recognise her?

IT’S not just on screen that a soap romance can blossom – with many of our favourite stars falling for each other in real life.

This is certainly the case with Emmerdale’s Paddy Kirk actor Dominic Brunt, who’s married to another soap star off screen.

The 51-year-old actor has played the loveable village vet in the ITV soap since 1997.

It’s fair to say Paddy has had his fair share of roller-coaster relationships during that time, with four marriages under his belt as well as several affairs.

But Dominic’s relationship drama is definitely just on-screen as the actor has been happily married to his fellow actress Joanne Mitchell since 2003.

Dominic and Joanne have two children together – sons called Mickey-Joe and Danny-Lee.

Joanne has made a number of TV appearances over the years and is no stranger to soapland, having appeared in Emmerdale multiple times.

The 49-year-old actress has had four roles on the ITV soap, playing Susan Davies, a midwife called Yeo and DS Karen Barnborough.

Most recently, she portrayed Sandra Flaherty – the mother of Liv Flaherty – who disgusted fans in recent scenes when she encouraged her alcoholic daughter to have a drink to forget her woes.

As well as Emmerdale, Joanne made a guest appearance in Coronation Street as Kalya Clifton’s mother Marsha in 2018.
