Will Mellor Wife
Is Will Mellor married? He has been married to Michelle McSween since August 2007. The Cheshire-born actor first met dancer Michelle in the musical Oh! What A Night. Their wedding was held at a grand manor house in Warwickshire. They refused to sell their wedding to a glossy magazine, despite several offers.
“I’ve got nothing against people who choose to do the celebrity thing and get everything paid for but that’s just not me,” Mellor said. “We wanted it to be our wedding and no one else’s. And that’s how we intend to live our lives – very normal and down-to-earth, which is the way I was brought up.”
Soon after the wedding, Mellor was clearly overjoyed being off the shelf for good.
“It’s great being able to say ‘My wife’,” he said. “We were always a good unit but now we’re married, it feels stronger somehow, more solid. Can you believe it? I’m an old married man now and I love it.”
When it came to marriage, Mellor gave it a wide berth. Even when his long-term girlfriend Michelle McSween made him a dad, he wouldn’t commit himself.
“You’ve got to be 110 per cent sure and I’m not and don’t know if I ever will be,” he said at the time. “I’m only going to marry the once and if it’s Michelle, it’s Michelle – if it’s not, it’s not.”
“I told Michelle we both had to be 100 per cent and she felt the same way because neither of us wants to do this all again.
“And as soon as I felt that way, I proposed. I knew I wanted to ask her to marry me when we were away in Grenada at Christmas so I planned to ask her parents first and do it all properly.”
In December 2006, while the pair were enjoying a romantic sunshine holiday, Mellor asked Michelle’s parents for her hand and then got down on one knee.
“It was all absolutely perfect,” he said. “Fortunately Michelle’s parents said ‘yes’ so one day I took her out on a boat, just the two of us.
“I took some music and played our song and with the sun setting behind us on the ocean, I knelt down and asked her to be my wife.
“It was very romantic and I admit I did get a bit teary, I don’t know why. I thought it was the woman who was supposed to cry but in this case it was me.
“I think the occasion hit me all at once because it was just so right and exactly how I’d imagined it would be.”
