The father of our very own Roman Kemp, Martin, has joined him on the 'Celebrity Gogglebox' sofa- so, how old is he and who is married to? His Spandau Ballet career revealed..
So, how old is Martin, who are his children and famous wife, and everything about his Spandau Ballet career revealed...
Martin Kemp is 58-years-old, and was born on 10th October 1961, making this former pop star a Libra.
Help us out, but we really can't think of anyone who looks better at 58, TBH!
Spandau Ballet was formed in 1979 and is described as 'new wave' from Islington, London- with the group made up of Tony Hadley, Martin Kemp, Gary Kemp, Steve Norman, Michael Ellison and John Keeble.
They are known for hits including 'Gold', 'True', and 'Through The Barricades' and are one of the biggest bands of the 80s.
Although the band split in the 90s, they've reunited on various occasions to perform and play together- and Martin's brother, Gary, was in the band alongside him.
Martin has been married to Shirlie Holliman since 1988, having been introduced to the singer hailing from the band Pepsi & Shirley by music icon George Michael- who was godfather to Roman Kemp.
Together, they live in London!
Martin and Shirlie had two children together- Roman who is 27 and a DJ here at Capital, and Harley Moon, who is 30, and a photographer with her own creative agency.
