As it turns out, he has a lot to thank his Inbetweeners cast mates Joe Thomas (Simon Cooper) and Emily Atack (Charlotte Hinchcliffe) for as his met his other half while on a pub crawl with them and Emily's sister Martha.

Watch him explain all in his interview:

Blake Harrison on how he met his wife

"We've been together for 13 years and we know the day we met," he began. "Funnily enough I was on a pub crawl with Joe Thomas (Simon) and Emily Atack and her sister. It was for Joe's birthday.

"A few people had kind of left and we went into The Old Vic Pit Bar, which I don't think is there any more and my wife used to be a stage manager at the Old Vic and we kind of locked eyes from across the room, but I didn't say anything because I was too nervous to go up."

He added: "So I was locking eyes enough to think, 'Oh I've had a little confidence boost now' and I just got up and left and went to a place across the road and then her and her mates followed in about half an hour later."
