Six love stories about six very different couples - people in the public eye and the partners who share their private lives.
2: Gillian and Peter Gillian Lynne , top theatre director and choreographer of Cats, is 52. Her husband, Peter Land , an actor still struggling for recognition, is 30.
When Peter proposed, Gillian was hesitant. 'I thought he should be made fully aware of all the drawbacks - like the fact that I wouldn't be able to give him children.'
They married three years ago and are very happy. But Gillian worries 'that the day will come when Peter will put me out to grass. I will mind, but I'll try to be good about it.'
