Does DS Melvyn Downes have a wife?

Melvyn describes himself as a “family man” on social media. According to a 2021 report from The Sun, he is married.

Prior to SAS: Who Dares Wins season 6 episode 1 airing, it doesn’t look as though there is a wealth of information out there when it comes to Melvyn’s personal relationships.

Given the nature of the show, the focus looks to be more on Melvyn’s career within the military and his move into TV work.

Speaking to Channel 4 of his SAS: Who Dares Wins experience, Melvyn said: “It was an exciting experience but also terrifying as I’ve spent most of my life undercover“. So, perhaps it’ll take some time before he starts to post his private life on IG!
