Outnumbered duo 'become a real-life couple'

Hugh Dennis and Claire Skinner have reportedly hooked up

Outnumbered stars Hugh Dennis and Claire Skinner have become real-life partners, it has been reported.

The pair play permanently harassed husband and wife Pete and Sue Brockman in the BBC One sitcom

But the actors got together in March last year, more than 12 months after Skinner, 53, split from husband Charles Palmer, The Sun says today.

Mock The Week regular Dennis, 56, separated from his ­second wife Kate Abbot-Anderson in 2015 after 19 years together. 

An unnamed pal told the paper: ‘It was quite a while after their sep­arations that they got together. They’ve always been really friendly but they were living their own lives until they were both single.’

Dennis and Skinner each have two children, aged between 16 and 21.
