How long have Omid and his wife Annabel been together?
Omid and his wife, actress Annabel Knight have been married for almost three decades having tied the knot in 1992.

“I think the plan is to get to a level of success, then choose what you do, so you have quality time together.

“We have no family life at the moment. And I don’t want it to be like that.”
Away from his family life, Omid has admitted he would love to give relationship advice on reality dating show Love Island.
Talking to The Guardian in November said: “I’d come on for five minutes in my swimming trunks as resident relationships adviser to the girls.
“I often watch and think someone needs to explain to them that the boys are all scared of emotions, which I shout at the TV.
“I think it could go viral, which is good because what I have to say is of global significance.
“We’re a society that loves youth, but there’s a wisdom of age, too, which is dismissed.”
