Speaking at the time of their wedding, Mr Mylan said: ‘We met on the set of Waterloo Road, we were both single and we often found ourselves at stupid o’clock in the morning together and we got together really quickly.
‘We really just hit it off straight away. In fact, I pretty much knew as soon as I met her I wanted to marry her.
‘I proposed to her on a bench that we used to sit on a lot overlooking the River Clyde.
‘Waterloo Road had finished filming and I was returning to Cardiff and she was going home to Dundee and I set up my camera and said we should take some photos of our special place.
‘I think she wondered what on earth I was doing because I kept setting it up for different poses and then I went down on one knee!’
Richard won two Welsh Baftas for a documentary he made with his son Jaco documenting his life with autism.
