Divorced couple remarry 28 years on with son as best man
When they met at Brands Hatch racing circuit in 1979, it was love at first sight for Annette Wensley and Duncan Gray. The couple married just two years later. But after the birth of their son Stuart, they drifted apart and eventually divorced before losing contact for more than two decades. Now, 28 years after going their separate ways, the pair have remarried at the race track where they met - after Stuart, now 34, asked his mother to help him find his father and the couple reconciled. The couple, who remarried two weeks ago with a proud Stuart as best man, first met when Mr Gray was a young racing driver.


When they met at Brands Hatch racing circuit in 1979, it was love at first sight for Annette Wensley and Duncan Gray. The couple married just two years later.
But after the birth of their son Stuart, they drifted apart and eventually divorced before losing contact for more than two decades.

Now, 28 years after going their separate ways, the pair have remarried at the race track where they met – after Stuart, now 34, asked his mother to help him find his father and the couple reconciled.

Mrs Gray, 54, said: ‘Being back with Duncan is as if we’ve never been apart. If it weren’t for Stuart we’d never have found love again. But now we have we’re making up for all the decades we spent apart.’
The couple, who remarried two weeks ago with a proud Stuart as best man, first met when Mr Gray was a young racing driver.
Mrs Gray said: ‘I’d gone to Brands Hatch with some friends and Duncan came over for a chat. He had a gorgeous smile that made my heart pound. Within weeks we were a couple.’ 
They married and as his racing career took off they travelled together with baby Stuart, but drifted apart and eventually started living separate lives.

Over the next 20 years both began relationships with others, losing contact until 2009 when Stuart asked his mother to help him find his father. 
After ringing old friends they found Mr Gray, who’d moved 200 miles from Chatham, Kent, to South Yorkshire.
Mrs Gray, a sales manager, said: ‘I stayed in the car while Stuart knocked on Duncan’s door. A few hours later he came back and said it had been great to see his father again but that he was recovering from bowel cancer. That was a terrible shock.’
