"We've known each other for a decade and have been dating for almost as long. We've been through the wringer, through the highest and lowest times."

And amid the coronavirus pandemic, Henry was able to put his former career choice as an apprentice hairstylist to good use by helping Liv - who he married in 2016 - with her tresses.

He said: "Once in a while, when she's struggling with a blow dry in the morning, I'll finish off the back for her."
