Six love stories about six very different couples - people in the public eye and the partners who share their private lives.
5: Edwina and Ray
It's less than a year since glamorous mother-of-two Edwina Currie romped home for the Tories in Derbyshire South, but already she and her husband, Ray, are being called 'the next Margaret and Denis'.
'It's very flattering from the political angle as far as she's concerned', says Ray, 'and if I can do a quarter as well as Denis Thatcher does and put up with the public teasing, I'll be very happy.'
When he met Edwina 13 years ago he knew that she wanted to be an mp and she knew that she was going to be one. 'I vetted him very carefully', says Edwina who has already made her mark in the House and out of it. She aims to be the first woman to make the Commons shooting team and she's much wined and dined by the gossip columnists as well as the political writers.
'Ray is very good for me', she says 'At the House they say flattering things they don't always mean. Then I get home and I'm brought down with a bump with questions like where have I put his razor or why wasn't there any milk.'

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a
historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any
given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the
understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time
- not those of today.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and
is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to
obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in
programmes, online etc.
This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available
externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
