Dennis is most known for his role as dad and history teacher Pete in Outnumbered.
He played the character for all five seasons alongside Claire Skinner, who played his on-screen wife, Sue.
The show followed the lives of the married couple and what they got up to with their children Jake, Ben and Karen.
Since the show ended, he’s landed roles in Midsomer Murders, Fleabag and regularly appears on Mock the Week.
Dennis hit headlines when it was revealed that he had started dating his co-star Claire in 2017.
Claire – who has starred in the likes of Ted Lasso and Vanity Fair – confirmed her relationship with Dennis in an interview with The Times.
She confessed that “nobody really noticed” when they first started dating.
“People said to us that someone will notice soon but I kept telling them, ‘We’re both over 50. Why would anyone be interested in that?’” she said.
“We’ve got families we wanted to protect, but everybody’s pretty cool and happy with it.”
Hugh was with ex-wife Miranda Carroll from 1987 to 1993.
He shares his two children Freddie and Meg – with his second wife, Kate Abbot-Anderson , who he was with from 1996 to 2015.
Claire shares two boys with ex husband Charles Palmer, who she was married to from 2001 to 2016.
