Meet Victoria Derbyshire’s spouse

Unlike many people in the public eye, who seem to get married as soon as humanly possible, Victoria and her now-husband were partners for a whopping 16 years before tying the knot.

Victoria’s husband is Mark Sandell, a TV and radio producer.

Mark is London based, supports West Ham United and is an Essex Cricket life member, according to his Twitter bio.

While Victoria is often in front of the camera for her role as a newsreader and journalist, her other half spends his days behind the scenes.

Mark, 58, is a radio producer who has worked on award-winning podcasts Manhunt and Beyond Reasonable Doubt.

He has his own production company – 6Foot6 Productions. Mark also had a career spanning 25 years at the BBC as well as working for five years in radio.

Victoria and Mark’s wedding

After meeting in 2002, Victoria and Mark married in 2018. Together they have two sons, Oliver, 16, and Joe, 13.

Victoria was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2015, she’s publicly spoken about having to deal with the idea of leaving her husband and sons behind on more than one occasion. But, thankfully, Victoria made a full recovery and has been cancer-free since 2016.

They wed in an intimate ceremony and it was actually Victoria who proposed rather than Mark! According to The Daily Mail, Mark said that he thought marriage was “overrated” as he had been married once before to Fi Glover. It’s reported that Mark and Fi were together at the time that he fell for Victoria.

As reported by The Sun, speaking of her marriage in 2019, Victoria said: “I remember thinking Mark and I should marry quickly in case I die… It was joyous and teary, and the most magnificent day of my life.”
