Dennis Waterman was married to actress Rula Lenska from January 3, 1987 – to March 31, 1998. They were married for over 11 years. They had no children together.
Their marriage ended due to his violent behaviour toward her, and he caused an uproar when he made extremely controversial comments about their relationship with Piers Morgan.
In 2012, he told him while filming an episode of Life Stories: “A woman can easily provoke a man to hit her. She wasn’t a beaten wife; she was hit, which is different.”
