Caroline Quentin is best known for her roles in Men Behaving Badly as Dorothy and Maddie Magellan in Jonathan Creek. Caroline has since taken to the Strictly ballroom this year alongside Strictly pro Johannes Radebe. But what is known of the star’s family life away from the show?
How many children does Caroline have?
The Strictly star has two children daughter Emily and son William with husband Sam Farmer.
Caroline and Sam have been married since 2006 and celebrated their 14th wedding anniversary this year.
Sam is 11 years younger than Caroline who is now 60-years-old.

Talking of their difference in age, Caroline previously said: “The older we get the less it seems to matter.
“Yes, I’m nearly 50. But he’ll be 40 in a couple of years too, so neither of us is a spring chicken.”
Caroline, in the past, has spoken of how her career often takes her away from her family.
She said: “Wherever I am, my mind is on home and I’ll be talking to Sam and the kids on the phone.
“It’s probably hard for Sam and the kids when I’m coming and going. I’ve always been good cop to Sam’s bad cop.”
Amid her debut on Strictly, she added: “I’m used to being away for work, but I will miss them very much.
“Although I’m hoping we’ll be able to take some socially distanced walks together at times. Sam and the kids are very excited for me.
“I knew Sam and Emily would be but I’m most surprised at how enthusiastic William is. All his friends are, too. It’s very sweet.”

Not much is known of her children’s lives as Caroline keeps them away from her career in the spotlight.
Caroline has opened up on motherhood and how it changed her life, saying: “I don’t think I had any idea how much I would love becoming a mother.”
“I used to feel that sense of freefall at certain times in life; a bit like Alice in Wonderland.
“I’d just be falling down that black hole and following the rabbit.
“I know I used to feel that a lot as a child and I don’t want my children to feel that.”
Former Strictly star James Jordan exclusively told Ladbrokes as their Strictly Come Dancing ambassador of his worries for Caroline dancing the Cha Cha tonight.
He said: “Caroline doing the Cha Cha on Saturday worries me, because of her ballet background I think she would be much more suited to a Rhumba – that would be beautiful to watch.
“There’s lots of hip action in the Cha Cha, it’s quite earthy and grounded which is everything she’s not I’m afraid, so my gut feeling is she will be very stiff during the Cha Cha. It’s going to be a tough week for Caroline.”
Strictly Come Dancing will air tonight on BBC One at 7.15pm.
