Loose Women star Sunetra Sarker tied the knot with her husband Scott Carey back on November 1 2018.

The couple married in two ceremonies – one traditionally British, the other Indian – at the Matara Centre in the Cotswolds.

They founded a firm together which sells a product which helps to kill bacteria.

But, while happily married and working together to run a company, their marriage is somewhat unconventional as they don't actually live together.

As Sunetra and Scott mark their fifth wedding anniversary, Daily Star has taken a look inside her life.

TV star

Sunetra is best known for her roles as Nisha Batra in Brookside, Zoe Hanna in Casualty and Kaneez Paracha in Ackley Bridge.

In 2014, she took part in the twelfth series of Strictly Come Dancing, partnered with Brendan Cole.

She is now a panellist on ITV lunchtime chat show Loose Women.

Sunetra and her ancestors were the subject of an episode of Who Do You Think You Are? in 2017 and traced them to Bengal.

She visited her great-grandmother's ancestral village where she discovered the story of how her family were caught up in the Bangladeshi war of independence from Pakistan in 1971.

Sunetra married Nick Corfield in 2003 and they have a son, Noah, who was born in 2001. The pair divorced in 2009.

Living 'happily apart' from husband

Sunetra has previously admitted that she and husband Scott live "happily apart" despite tying the knot five years ago.

The couple, who have known each other since 1991, made a decision to live apart because they both had children from previous relationships.

She explained during an episode of Loose Women that she didn't want to have to uproot their kids' lives or make them switch schools if they moved in together.

Sunetra said at the time: "We live happily apart. Scott and I, madly in love. Meeting Scott was like discovering a new colour.

"Then the thought of us not living together was so weird."

"What happens is, Scott is with his kids for one week, then joins me and Noah here.

"In our school breaks, we become a five and we all go to them or they'll come to us. Holidays are fabulous because it's such a rare thing to be together again."

Wedding dress drama

The TV star opened up on her bridal dress drama on Loose Women last year.

Speaking to her co-stars, the actress revealed her friend's brutal honesty which came as a shock so close to her big day.

Sunetra said: "I was in this wedding dress shop and I’d tried a few on and I thought, 'This is the one' and I put a deposit down."

She invited her friend to come along because she was: "Ready to show off."

However, on seeing the dress, her friend said: "As long as you like it that’s all that matters" and added: "It doesn't matter what I think!"

Sunetra recounted: "She's clearly trying to be diplomatic but all I can hear is, 'You hate it, you hate it, you hate it. You hate me! You hate everything about the dress!"

'Petrifying' ghost encounter

Sunetra has previous discussed her potential paranormal experience which left her "petrified".

She is a believer in the unknown and even had a close encounter of her own while filming a show for Channel 4.

In 2004, Sunetra, along with the likes of Louise Delamere, Jo Joyner and Francis Magee, starred in comedy-drama No Angels.

She recalled how the show was being filmed in a "disused psychiatric asylum.".

The star said: "As two of the cast members were filming a scene on a bed, Kaye Wragg stopped for a makeup check and everyone heard it, two voices saying 'Get out! Get out!'. We were all petrified."

Glam snaps

When she's not on the TV, Sunetra often shares some glam snaps with her social media followers.

She boosts over 58,000 followers on her Instagram page and regularly updates her grid.

In May 2012, the actress took to the photo-sharing platform to tease a glimpse of her outfit as she headed to the BAFTAs.

She dressed to impress for the glitzy event and fans rushed to leave a message for Sunetra in the comment section.
