Comedienne Sarah Millican has said that comedy in relationships is vital - both on and off stage. Determined to make her way in the comedy circuit after her marriage broke down, the funnywoman went on to find her current boyfriend on her fellow career path.
"We get on really well and make each other laugh, which is, I think, essential for a relationship, as it helps you get through things and ride the tough bits," she said.
Taking her material from everyday life, Sarah is insistent on always having a notepad to hand.
"When I'm with him or my family and friends, if anything funny happens to me, I always write it down," she said.
"Everyone who knows me knows that it will end up in the show at some point because my act is about normal life. They just accept it now.
"Sometimes my boyfriend will even text me a funny exchange we've had so I've got it on record. My mum will start a sentence saying, 'This isn't for the stage, mind...', but everyone's very relaxed about it."
