Patsy Kensit’s four ex-husbands explained as she gets engaged for a fifth time

Patsy Kensit is set to walk down the aisle for the fifth time after secretly getting engaged to her boyfriend, property tycoon Patric Cassidy.

The former Emmerdale star, 54, met her new beau through mutual friends and following a whirlwind five-week romance, he romantically popped the question earlier this week.

A friend of Patsy’s told The Sun: “This has been a whirlwind romance. Patsy and Patric are smitten, and it just feels very right. He popped the question at Scott’s fish restaurant in London on Tuesday.”

Mum-of-two Patsy last tied the knot in 2009 with DJ Jeremy Healy, and has previously been married to the likes of Simple Minds singer Jim Kerr and Oasis rocker Liam Gallagher.

As she gets set to say ‘I do’ for the fifth time, here we take a look back at Patsy’s previous marriages…

Dan Donovan

Patsy’s first husband was keyboardist Dan Donovan, 60, who she married in 1988.

She was just 22 when she exchanged vows with the Big Audio Dynamite star, who she had been dating for around one year.

Just two years after tying the knot, Patsy and Dan separated with their divorce being finalised in 1991.

Jim Kerr

Following her divorce from Dan, Patsy married Simple Minds singer Jim Kerr in 1992.

She and Jim, 62, whose real name is James, welcomed their first child together in 1993, a son named James.

James, 27, tends to keep out of the spotlight with Patsy rarely sharing snaps of him on social media, as he prefers to live a private life.

Patsy and Jim were married for four years with the pair getting divorced in 1996.

Liam Gallagher

Patsy’s most high profile relationship was with Oasis rocker Liam Gallagher, who she married in April 1997 at Marylebone Town Hall.

The actress’ five-year romance with Liam, 49, saw them both constantly hitting the headlines due to cheating rumours.

Speaking about their relationship, Patsy previously told the Mirror: “I’d heard all the rumours about his womanising and I knew exactly what was going on behind my back.

“Liam was very young and I could also see the temptations surrounding him. I wasn’t naive about how intoxicating it can be – and it was all new to Liam.”

However, Patsy told how they had a special “chemistry”, adding: “We just clicked on every level. He was protective and loving. When we were together there were fireworks, and a chemistry that lasted to the end.”

In 1999, she gave birth to her and Liam’s first child, a son named Lennon, who was named after Beatles star John Lennon.

The following year Liam and Patsy divorced, with the Oasis frontman swiftly moving on with Nicole Appleton.

Opening up about their final split, Patsy admitted: “I regretted walking out almost immediately. I think he had moved on while I still had feelings for him, and my heart was broken into a million pieces.”

The pair’s son Lennon, 22, is a model and aspiring musician, who remains close to both of his famous parents.

Jeremy Healy

Patsy’s fourth marriage came in 2009, when she tied the knot with DJ Jeremy Healy.

She and Jeremy, 60, had originally announced their plans to marry in November 2007, but in March 2008 it was reported that they’d called it quits and cancelled their marriage plans.

However, they eventually reconciled and went on to exchange vows in April 2009.

Patsy and Jeremy’s marriage was short-lived, with rumours of a separation beginning to circulate in February 2010, less than one year after they had walked down the aisle.
