While appearing on GMTV back in 2008, the actor revealed how the couple shared a "drunken lunch" during their honeymoon in Mexico and ending up getting matching tattoos to mark their marriage.The actor's tattoo, which is inked on his forearm, reads: "Mrs Fox 31st December 2007", while hers reads: "Mr Fox 31 December 2007".The actor, who was playing Charles de Gaulle in The Patriotic Traitor, scolded a man sitting in the front row who had snubbed him.
A short statement released on the actor’s Facebook page read: “Laurence Fox and Billie Piper have separated. For the sake of our family we request and appeal for space and privacy at this time.” Billie and the Lewis actor, 37, have two sons Winston, seven and Eugene, three.
They met while starring in a play called Treats together in 2006 and married at the 12th century parish church of St Mary's in Easebourne, West Sussex, near the family home on New Year's Eve in 2007. We were in a rehearsal room and I knew there and then she was the one for me," he said in an interview in 2010.
Their relationship was a controversial one at the time: she was just 19 years old when she married Chris, who was 35 at the time.
They split in 2004 and finally divorced in 2007, just months before she made it official with Laurence, and they have remained close friends.
