Liza Tarbuck, daughter of legendary comedian Jimmy Tarbuck, is popular among her fans for her incredible sense of humor and her down-to-earth carefree personality.
Besides her profession, her personal life has always been people’s interest, especially her sexuality. She has been a target of lesbian speculation for several years, but Tarbuck shut the rumor and clarified she is not a lesbian.
Is Liza Tarbuck Married?
The BBC radio presenter and former actress, Tarbuck’s love life is somewhat mysterious. Not having revealed her relationships in the past, she was mostly circulated by lesbian rumors and relationship gossips.
Talking in an interview a few years back, Tarbuck mentioned that the rumor that said she had been single for twenty years was not true. She further said,
Some things I prefer to keep private. All I'll say here is I adore male company. It's extraordinary how great that attention can make you feel. And I don't do badly on that score, even if I'm single now.
At least, this statement makes it clear that she has had few secret lovers in the past. However, keeping her love life to herself left her fans coming up with their assumptions of her sexuality and possible partners.
Also, the lesbian rumor might have sparked after she once talked about her two gay friends who made a pact that if Tarbuck were single by the age of 40, they would propose to her.
When asked by an interviewer if the gay friends were still waiting, Tarbuck burst into infectious laughter and jokingly replied, “Yes, they bloody well are!”
Currently, the radio presenter is single. She never married and didn’t have children. However, being single was never her intention. She once said in her interview,
I always believed, as did my mum, that I'd be the one married to a farmer, with a huge brood running around my ankles. It hasn't happened, but that's okay. I've just not met anyone I want to have babies with. I'm frighteningly self-contained and I've got a lot of mates
