The marriage will be McCoy’s third.

The 59-year-old welcomed a son named Max with his first wife in 1993, then in 2007 tied the knot with BBC South West presenter Victoria Graham.

They went their separate ways in 2019 and McCoy later started dating Samms.

The actor, 61, is known for playing Fallon Carrington in 80s hit Dynasty, and also starred in the US soap General Hospital.

Samms has been married three times – to Bansi Nagji from 1991 to 1992, to Tim Dillon from 1994 to 1995 and to John Holloway from 1996 to 2003. She has two children from her relationship with Holloway.
