Popular for the Netflix show Sex Education, rumors of Ncuti Gatwa’s wife and relationships have been in the media since the show gained the required hype. Well, the curiosity about his love life is quite justified, considering the celebrity status he has gained.
Moreover, his acting stock has been high as of late as he has also landed the role of the titular character in the long-running British series, Doctor Who. Well, for now, let’s take a look at his love life and find out if Gatwa is married or not.
Ncuti Gatwa’s Wife Is Just Speculations: He Is Not Married
The rising star is very reserved about his personal life. As of 2024, Ncuti hasn’t got a wife yet. He tries hard to balance his personal and public life, rarely sharing many details.
In the past, multiple sites have stated that Gatwa was in a relationship with actress, Jessica Hardwick. The two alumni from the Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama had even shared a picture together on Gatwa’s Instagram.
In addition to being a theatre actress, Jessica is quite an amazing photographer and has taken pictures for various TV personnel before, including Gatwa. The actor has said the following about her photographs,
Jess made me really comfortable and I got a good variety of photos. Both me and my agent were really happy with the results.
With her excellent collection of celebrities’ headshots for everyone to see, could it be that the picture of them together is just a bunch of headshots pieced together?

Ncuti Gatwa’s Sexual Orientation
The topic of Gatwa’s sexuality was a subject for discussion in the early days of the Netflix show, Sex Education. Fans questioned if he was really gay like his on-screen character. Gatwa hadn’t explicitly revealed anything at the time and even caused mass confusion with his comments in British Vogue’s Pride in early 2023.
He went naked for the issue and thought that was enough of a hint of his sexual orientation. But in late 2023, he publicly revealed his sexuality as he identified as “queer” for the cover story of Elle. He recounted the story of meeting another queer woman from Rwanda. Before that, he thought he was the only queer Rwandan person.
Being from Rwanda, where same-sex marriage is considered taboo, he didn’t feel comfortable speaking about his sexuality. The star only revealed this to his mom when he was 26. Coming out was not easy for the actor.
