Best friends: Philip and Kayley share a passion for motorbikes, and say their friendship has helped them stick at their marriage
Couple wed in secret ceremony despite families’ outrage
Kayley, 23, wants babies but Philip, 55, is about to become a GRANDDAD
It is not the kind of relationship one expects to go the distance. But today, a girl who married her 50-year-old biker lover in a secret civil ceremony has celebrated five years of marriage.
Kayley Simock, now 23, was just 17 years old when she wed twice-divorced ex-roadie Philip Nash in 2007, a year after meeting him at a religious service where she was playing the guitar.
The pair, who have a staggering 32 year age gap between them, infuriated their families when they wed in secret after Kayley’s family tried to put a stop to the relationship.
The receptionist nearly destroyed her relationship permanently after refusing to stop seeing ex-roadie Nash.
Yet six years since they first met, they say they are still very much in love.
Their path has never run smooth. Kayley, from Stourbridge in the West Midlands is the primary breadwinner after Phil was injured in a motorbike accident four years ago.
And while Kayley is ready to start a family of her own, Phil is less keen as his only child, a 27-year-old daughter, will soon give birth to his first grandchild.
