While playing the role of Dr House in America, Hugh spent nine months out of every year separated from his wife and family, who lived in North London.

The separation was extremely difficult for Hugh, but both he and his wife decided that uprooting their children would be too difficult.

When asked by The Daily Mail in 2010 if he spent more time on set than at home, Hugh said: “I wouldn’t say that doing the series has made my marriage easier. Better? I don’t know about that either.”

He added: "Doing weekly TV is like joining the Navy and going on the other side of the world for ten months of the year.

"But the truth is that whatever challenging situation you're in, somebody somewhere has got a much more extreme version. So I think one ought to shut up and not moan about it."

Hugh and Jo have three children – Charlie (born 1988), Bill (born 1991), and Rebecca (born 1992).

Hugh's eldest son Charlie played a small role as baby William in A Bit of Fry & Laurie, during a sketch entitled Special Squad.
