Are Mark and Samantha Womack married, how old are they and do they have kids?

Mark Womack has made quite the entrance into Emmerdale as bent cop DI Malone, a dramatic debut into the world of soaps that his wife would be proud of.

DI Malone arrived in Emmerdale to grill the villagers about the recent shooting of Nate Robinson, but it soon became apparent that the cop was corrupt.

For those that recognised Mark – or felt like his name ringsa bell – here’s where you may recognise his surname from…

Are Mark and Sam Womack married?

Mark is indeed married to actress Samantha Womack, who played Ronnie Mitchell in EastEnders for a decade between 2007 and 2017.

The 59-year-old actor and Samantha, now 47, tied the knot in 2009, four years after they got engaged and after the couple had been together for nearly 10 years.

‘It just took us forever – weddings are huge things to organise and I think we were just always busy with other things,’ Samantha said at the time when explaining why the pair waited nearly five years to say ‘I do’ after getting engaged.

Samantha, whose maiden name was Sam Janus before marrying Mark, is known for playing feisty former Albert Square resident Ronnie as well as Tanya in Sky One drama Mount Pleasant, but since leaving the soap three years ago the actress has appeared in movies including Kingsman and TV series Silent Witness.

Before appearing in Emmerdale, Mark also had a role in Silent Witness, as well as Merseybeat, Hearts and Minds, Liverpool 1 and Murphy’s Law.

Do Mark and Sam Womack have children?

Samantha has two children with Mark, Benjamin Thomas Womackand Lily Rose Womack.

Mark also has a son called Michael from his first marriageto Mary Therese McGoldrick which ended in 1997.

Speaking on This Morning back in 2015, Samantha admitted that despite thinking about having another baby, Mark had ‘banned’ her from having more kids.

‘He’s banned me from breeding any more,’ the actress joked.

Emmerdale continues tonight, Friday 6 March, at 7pm on ITV.
