Judge Rinder has become a bit of a daytime legend… but there’s something the folks at home want to know about him… who is his partner and is he married?

Is Judge Rinder married?

Is Judge Rinder gay?

Yes, Robert Rinder, the star of ITV’s daytime courtroom show Judge Rinder is in fact gay. He married his partner Seth Cumming, a political adviser to former Chancellor, turned Evening Standard editor George Osborne, in a beautiful ceremony in Ibiza in July 2013. The ceremony was officiated by his friend and actor Benedict Cumberbatch at the stunning location. The couple were married for over four years before they parted ways in 2018.


His business buddy and former GAYUK cover star Ivan Massow was at the wedding who shared these pictures of Robert and Seth getting married. Actor Benedict Cumberbatch, who is a legally ordained minister can be seen taking control of the cliff top ceremony which took place at the Hacienda Hotel on the sunny party island of Ibiza.




Sadly the pair split in 2018 after 4 years of marriage, although the couple were together for 11 years in total. They announced their split in January 2018. No third parties are believed to be involved in the “amicable” split.

A note from the editor.

These are tough times for us all. Without a doubt. But we're here for you and want to continue being here for you for the foreseeable future. THEGAYUK.com needs your help to survive. Due to the nature of the articles that we publish, we find it very hard to monetize our site and have been heavily restricted by ad platforms. This leaves us two ways of making money to keep this site going. 1) We run an online shop which we encourage you to visit and if you can make a purchase and 2) We run popup shops at the prides we media partner with. As you'll no doubt be aware the majority of pride events have been cancelled or postponed for 2020, which leaves our site at risk of closure.

Around 70 per cent of our funding comes from these popup shops. So we have a severe funding shortfall for 2020.

If just 100 people who use this site each donated £2 per month we'd be able to pay for the hosting for the rest of the year - meaning we can continue to keep THEGAYUK online. Please, if you can, consider donating £2 or whatever you can to keep us going.

Thank you.
