Third marriage lucky as on-screen lovers tie knot


SPOOKS star Peter Firth, 64, has tied the knot with actress Alexandra Pigg, 55, more than 30 years after they played star-crossed lovers in the hit film Letter To Brezhnev. This is the third marriage for both.

Pigg and Firth enjoyed a reallife on-set romance during and after filming the 1985 movie, in which he played a Russian sailor who falls for a Liverpudli­an girl while on shore leave.

But their relationsh­ip did not last and both made their lives with other people — until meeting again in 2010, when their feelings were rekindled.

They have been together ever since. Firth has said: ‘We did have an on-set romance, but it fizzled out — and then a few years ago, it fizzled on again.’

Firth has four children: a son from his first marriage and two sons and a daughter from his second. Meanwhile, Pigg has three children: a daughter from her first marriage and a son and daughter from her second.
