Amy Nuttall has made a very public show of unity with her husband Andrew Buchan when she spoke about being ‘married’ to him.  

In an interview with the Sunday Times this weekend, the actress, 41, referred to her partner, 45, during a conversation about homes and partnerships, seemingly proving they were very much ‘on’. 

So does that mean Andrew is finally playing by the seven rules she set him in order to get their marriage back on track? 

Amy said in the interview: ‘Generally speaking, in the last financial year — what can I tell you? — below a hundred grand, but I’m married so it all goes into one pot. 

‘So it’s not as scary because I can lean on that.’

She confirmed the couple still own their family home together, explaining: ‘I’m the joint owner of our comfortable family home in Buckinghamshire.

‘We owned a smaller house before.’

It’s the clearest indication yet that Amy considers that she and Andrew are back together for good, after taking him back for a third time.

MailOnline has contacted representatives for Amy and Andrew for comment. 

On Monday, it emerged the actress had taken back her love rat husband seven months after dumping him for failing to stick to her ‘marriage rules’.

The couple first split when Andrew left Amy for actress Leila Farzad, 42, in December 2022 with the affair becoming public knowledge the following February 2023. 

But just weeks later, Leila allegedly returned to her husband James Maizels, while Andrew has gone back to his family, with The Sun reporting that Andrew told a friend: ‘We’re healing.’

In July, it was claimed that Amy had set her husband seven strict rules to follow after their reunion in order to rekindle their relationship.

The seven rules included having full access to one another’s phones and having a date night once a week and going on a couple’s holiday every seven months.

Amy apparently demanded weekly date nights as they followed the 777 approach, full access to each other’s phones and absolutely no out of work contact with any co-stars, according to The Sun.

It was reported that Andrew would also need to keep in contact via FaceTime when he’s working away.

‘No one thought they could come back from this but Amy has decided to give it one more go,’ a source told the publication.

‘[Amy] doesn’t want to throw away over a decade together but at the same time she is far from a pushover.

‘They will adopt the 777 approach which means every seven days you go on a date, every seven weeks you go away for the night and every seven months you go away on holiday just the two of you.’

The 777 approach makes up three of the rules, and the final one is that their work should be on an equal footing, it was reported.

Speculation Amy and Andrew had reunited came in June when Andrew was seen leaving their family home wearing his gold wedding ring.

Amy was spotted around the same time at the property, without her ring, but insiders suggested they were giving things another go.

A source close to the couple told the The Sun: ‘Amy was, understandably, devastated to learn of the infidelity and wanted a clean break and a fresh start.

‘But Andrew has come back to her and promised to change.

‘They have been working through their problems and are trying to put the love triangle behind them for the sake of their family.’

They reconciled but the former Emmerdale star reportedly split from him again in August 2023 when he failed to stick to seven marriage rules she had set out to help rebuild their marriage.  

At the time, ‘Gutted’ Amy was said to have called time on their 11-year marriage and thrown him out of the family home they shared with their two children.

It was originally thought that the couple were separated after Amy reportedly demanded a divorce from her husband Andrew in March last year, just weeks after news of their split emerged, but it seemed her wishes changed.

After their second split in August last year, a source told The Sun: ‘It took a lot for Amy to give the marriage another chance but she thought it was worth one final roll of the dice.

‘There is no suggestion he has cheated again, but as far as she is concerned this is it.’ 

They added: ‘She is obviously gutted but also accepts that their time together has come to an end.’

Amy was dealt another blow just weeks later, when her mother died in September after suffering from a brain tumour. 

She honoured her late mother by releasing the charity single, Thank You Mother, in March, teaming up with The Brain Tumour Charity to raise vital awareness and funds for the charity. 

Andrew was thought to have left the family home after their affair came to light and moved in with Leila after meeting her while working together on the BBC series.

Leila married her husband James Maizels in 2013, and they have a daughter who was born in 2014.

Andrew’s alleged affair with Leila was exposed after Amy discovered that he had purchased racy lingerie in a size that was not her own.

Friends claimed the actor informed Amy of his desire to terminate the marriage shortly before Christmas.

A source told The Sun: ‘The penny started to drop over a period of time. He was away a lot, which wasn’t unusual because of the nature of his work, but at one point Amy realised he had been staying in hotels very near to home — and wondered why.

‘As time moved on, there were some tell-tale signs that he had become close to Leila — just something in his mannerisms and in their social media posts together.

‘But the final straw was the lingerie — that’s what clinched it. Amy just knew instinctively that it wasn’t meant for her.’

Amy, who had been so ‘crushed’ by the end of her marriage that she was crying almost every day, struggled to raise a smile as she was seen running errands in Buckinghamshire days later.

Speaking to MailOnline about the split shortly afterwards, she fought back tears and confessed: ‘I can’t talk about it. I’m sorry, I can’t say anything.’

A source said at the time: ‘It was a huge shock. Amy is heartbroken.’

Andrew was said to have told Amy their marriage was over ahead of the festive period, leaving the actress devastated and their friends in a state of shock.

The source added: ‘For Andrew to walk away from his family was a huge shock to us all – and Amy is heartbroken. Everyone who knows them thought they were going to be together forever.

‘But he’s packed his bags and left with his new co-star. Whatever has gone on, it seems to have been enough for him to re-evaluate his whole life and rip up their marriage.

‘Nobody is quite sure of the exact details, but Andrew has clearly had his head turned pretty dramatically.’ MailOnline has contacted a representative for further comment.

After being left devastated by her husband’s alleged infidelity, sources told The Sun that Amy was taking the power back after the betrayal, while also claiming that Andrew and Leila had parted ways.

The source said: ‘She’s told him she wants a divorce anyway, she’s been publicly humiliated and the pain has been unbearable.

‘She thought he was away working, when in fact he was often in hotels with Leila — once the truth emerged it was like being hit by a train.’

They added: ‘Now she’s decided to take back control again and plan her own future. She’s going down the legal route and will get everything she’s entitled to.’

In January last year, Leila took to social media to share a gushing tribute to Andrew in a montage featuring the entire Better cast and crew.

Her caption read: ‘This lot. Couldn’t and wouldn’t happen without them. Big up the Better team who wiped my tears, held me up, fed me crumpets and made me smile.

‘Don’t have pics of everyone but this gang got me through! We made a show, it’s NOT a Happy Valley replacement but a morality tale which should make you think.’
