Siobhan Finneran, time actress, wed soap star Mark Jordon before amicable breakup.

Siobhan Finneran, best known for her roles in popular British TV shows like Downton Abbey and Happy Valley, might seem like she leads a pretty private life. But did you know that she was once married to former soap star Mark Jordon? Yes, you read that right – Sinead herself was once part of a star-studded soap opera romance.

The Northern lass was in a marital union with Mark for nearly two decades before they decided to part ways, and now they’ve both moved on to new relationships. Here’s everything you need to know about Siobhan Finneran and her ex-husband Mark Jordon, and what they’ve been up to since their split. Buckle up, it’s a wild ride!

Who is Sinead Finneran’s husband?

Known for her roles in critically acclaimed shows like Happy Valley and Benidorm, Siobhan Finneran was married to soap actor Mark Jordon for a whopping 17 years. The pair first crossed paths while working on the popular ITV drama Heartbeat, and sparks flew on set. The rest, as they say, is history.

They even have two lovely kids together, a daughter named Poppy and a son named Jordan. When talking about their romance in a charming interview back in 2001, Mark gushed about Sinead, saying, “She’s just so lovely. We met when I was 20 and she was a bezzie mate for years. We didn’t realise that half of our fun was flirtatious.” Ah, young love!

Mark eventually got down on one knee and popped the question in a sweet limo ride. How romantic, right? But unfortunately, after nearly two decades of marriage, Siobhan and Mark called it quits in 2014. Sometimes, love just isn’t enough to keep the flames burning, but hey – at least they had a good run!

Who is Mark Jordon married to now?

Since his split from Siobhan, former Emmerdale star Mark has found love again in the arms of fellow soap actor Laura Norton, who is 18 years his junior. The two lovebirds met on the set of Emmerdale, where Mark played Daz Spencer from 2014 to 2019, while Laura played Kerry Wyatt.

Their romance blossomed, and they eventually welcomed two adorable children together. Laura has been on maternity leave from the fictional village as she cares for their little ones. In October last year, she gave birth to their second child, a baby girl named Ronnie. Their first child, a son named Jesse, was born in 2021. Talk about a busy household, huh?

Making things even more complicated, in February, Laura and Mark revealed that both of their children have a rare genetic condition called Usher Syndrome. Life sure knows how to throw a curveball sometimes, doesn’t it? But despite the challenges, this soap opera couple seems to be taking it all in their stride.

Are Mark Jordon and Siobhan Finneran still friends?

Despite the painful end to their nearly two-decade-long marriage, Mark and Siobhan have remained close friends. In fact, Mark often posts about their older children, Poppy and Jordan, on Instagram. The two exes seem to be navigating their new lives with grace and maturity.

And get this – Siobhan recently made an appearance at a fundraiser thrown by Mark and Laura. Talk about being one big, happy, modern family, huh? They arrived at The Cure Usher Ball at Hilton, Manchester, hand in hand with their new partners. It’s great to see exes coming together for a good cause, isn’t it?

Does Siobhan Finneran have a new husband?

As far as the public is aware, Siobhan hasn’t tied the knot again since her split from Mark. However, she has been romantically linked to fellow actor Don Gilet. The two first appeared together in the Scottish thriller The Loch back in 2017, and they’ve been inseparable ever since.

The couple has been seen together at various red carpet events, including the MVISA Awards and the TV Choice Awards. They even left one event in a black taxi together – ooh la la! It’s nice to see that Siobhan has found love again after her divorce, isn’t it?
