James has also had four different characters on Emmerdale – again being cast as a cop, DS Bedford.

His character Kirk Benson had a dramatic time on the soap, with his sons Olly and Kurt ending up in a coma after a car crash, and his daughter Lucy becoming addicted to heroin.

Other roles include playing Phil in Early Doors, Mr Briggs in Gentleman Jack, and appearing in Fat Friends as another cop, PC Robert Rhymer.

Sue and James share one son together Elliot, who was reportedly born in 1998. Aside from this information, not much is known about their son since, unlike his mum and dad, Elliot keeps his life out of the spotlight.

Sue and James have remained "good friends" since their break-up. Not only have the pair worked together on Corrie, they also did a short play in 2009, ironically called Marriages Made In Heaven.

Speaking about working with his ex, James told The Manchester Evening News at the time: “It’s quite funny to be doing this with Sue.

“Although we got divorced, we get on well. but [before this] we haven’t acted together on stage since we first met in a play in 1991.”

Sue also has four grandchildren, with the fourth one being born just before she flew to the Australian jungle. The newborn belongs to her son Elliot Quinn.
