IT WAS a dream Caribbean holiday that turned into nightmare when Kate Winslet had to make a perilous escape with her two children and Richard Branson’s mother from a burning building during a tropical storm.

Few were surprised that, in the aftermath of the drama, the Oscar-winning actress fell in love with a fellow guest on the private island who had shared something of the terrifying experience… although the object of her affection was not her then lover, a Burberry model who was also on the trip. Such is the romantic rollercoaster of Winslet’s love life.



However, the confirmation yesterday that the 37-year-old had married Ned RocknRoll, Richard’s nephew, in a secret ceremony in New York, has raised more than a few eyebrows.
