Paddy Considine and Wife Shelley Insley’s married life explored
Considine and Shelly Insley have the sweetest love story that seems to have come straight from a fairy tale.
According to The Guardian, the pair has been together since Considine was 18, and he even went so far as to get her name tattooed on his forearm.
Considine tied the knot with Insley in 2002. They currently reside in Burton upon Trent, where he was born with their three beautiful children. He has not once felt the urge to move outside of Burton upon Trent, even though he frequently works in London.

Considine stressed that he wanted to raise the children “close” to his family and in-laws. But when people heard about him still residing at Burton, they were surprised.
He claimed that he wanted to lead a “quiet existence,” life telling the magazine that his children “didn’t know what he did for a career” for many years.
Considine and Insley appear to have a very close relationship, thanks to her that he learned he had the extremely rare illness known as Irlen Syndrome. However, he has made tremendous progress due to modern, cutting-edge medical treatment.
Since they have been married for over 20 years, Considine and his wife’s marriage is stronger than ever.
