Is Russell Tovey Married?

The openly gay actor Russell Tovey is known for his relationship with a fitness coach and rugby player, Steve Brockman.
Relationship With Steve Brockman
Russell and his partner Steve reportedly met online in 2016 and eventually began dating. The duo was spotted together several times and also attended various events in 2017. Steve even moved across the world to be together with Russell.
Russell and his boyfriend Steve got engaged in February 2018. The Being Human star described his engagement to the Daily Mail as “completely unexpected.” He even stated how happy he was and eager to celebrate it with a proper party.
However, four months later, in June 2018, the couple decided to part ways. The news of their separation came to light when Russell was asked if he was still together with Steve on his Instagram by one of his fans after he removed pictures with Steve from his page. Russell then responded, “No darling.”
Nevertheless, Russell and Steve reconciled in August 2019 but it’s not clear whether they are still engaged or not. During an interview with The Telegraph, the actor said,
“Well, I don't know how it works. Because we were, then we broke up, now we're back together. Is it like Snakes and Ladders? Do you go back to the beginning of the game and have to work your way back up again?”
There’s also a slight issue because Russell doesn’t have their engagement ring anymore. He sold it and gave the money to his brother to spend on sweets as he was taking his family to Disney World.
Russell has also explained how breaking up and reconciling have made their relationship strong. During an interview with The Guardian in November 2020, Russell stated that breaking up with his boyfriend has made their relationship stronger. He said,
“Breaking up with my boyfriend made us stronger when we got back together. In the whirlwind honeymoon phase, you can forget to work out who the other person is. Now we have more confidence. We both want this. It has all been worth it – even if he still whinges a lot.”
Steve is also a trainee architect. He previously played rugby for the Kings Cross Steelers.
