Benidorm’s Julie Graham labels 16-year age-gap with toy-boy husband ‘irrelevant’

Julie Graham, who is best known for her role on Benidorm, has opened up about her relationship with her toy-boy partner, saying their age gap is "utterly irrelevant".

Discussing her romance on Thursday's episode of Lorraine , the star, 54, admitted she doesn't see the 16-year age gap between herself and Davy Croket, 38, a problem.

The small screen actress first met her beau while filming Benidorm, where he was working as a skydiving instructor.

Discussing their ages, she said: "It's irrelevant, completely and utterly irrelevant, we don't even discuss it."

However, Julie explained to the Scottish host her husband's romantic proposal didn't go quite as planned.
