Actress Amanda Abbington is devoted to her man

Martin Freeman’s girlfriend of 11 years Amanda Abbington says she has no plans to marry The Hobbit star because she fears it could ruin their relationship.

Amanda, 37, refers to Martin, 41, as her husband but doesn’t intend to walk down the aisle anytime soon.

So many people I know got married after being together for years and then got divorced six months later,’ says actress Amanda, who is about to star in ITV’s Mr Selfridge.

I think maybe we don’t want to spoil it.’

The couple, who have two children – Joe, 6, and Grace, 4 – make an effort for each other and have date nights.

We still keep that element of mystery,’ Amanda tells the Daily Mail.

‘[Martin is] simply gorgeous.

‘He’s so down to earth and I love that; he doesn’t get star struck at all.

‘I trust him completely. We are so sure that we love each other.’
