Talking about her they meet, Paul revealed-“My wife Linzi and I met when we were on tour in the musical Hair. At first I struggled to pluck up the courage to talk to her, but after the tour we ended up in the same digs. One night I broke a chair so I went down, at 12.30am, to ask if she had any glue. Being a practical woman she did, and we’ve been together ever since. We married in 1984.”

Paul Nicholas has 6 children in total. Nicholas was 18 when he had a child, Carl, with his girlfriend Patricia Brecknell.
