In a piece written for the Daily Mail, he said: “I met my wife, Clare, at the Royal Free Hospital Medical School in September 1980, when we both started our medical training.”
He also revealed the “spooky” prediction that was made on his first day on the course.
He said: “Spookily enough it was the Dean of the Royal Free who first predicted that we would get married.
“Or rather, at the start of the course, he told a room full of first-year medical students (which included the two of us) that based on what had happened to previous groups of students, four of us in that room would marry. He was spot-on.”
