Who is Ruby Wax's husband Ed Bye?

ED Bye and Ruby Wax have been married for 33 years and have a rather “unconventional” partnership.

The Brit producer and director has a string of TV hits to his name.

Who is Ruby Wax's husband Ed Bye?

Edward Richard Morrison Bye was born on June 12, 1955.

He attended Mount House School, a public school in Tavistock, Devon.

Bye married the US comedienne-turned author Ruby Wax in 1988 and they have three children.

He was the co-founder of the TV production company Tall TV in 2011 along with Tim Dawson and Susan Nickson.

Bye has an impressive list of credits to his CV, working on a number of hit TV comedy shows including Red Dwarf, Bottom, The Vicar of Dibley, My Family and French and Saunders.

He has also worked on a number of his wife’s shows over the years, such as Don’t Miss Wax, The Full Wax and Ruby.

Who are Ruby Wax's ex-husbands?

Wax was previously married to Trevor Walton between 1981 and 1986 and Andrew Porter from 1976 – 1980.

Wax is said to have started dating Bye in 1987 with the couple marrying the following year.

In August 2021 Wax opened up about her “unconventional” partnership with Bye.

She reckons the “unconventional” nature of their relationship is what keeps it fresh.

Ruby said: “I have my friends, he has his friends. I don’t assume we have the same tastes.

“It’s understood we both have different careers. We’re together but we have different tastes and jobs — and that’s OK.

“We don’t step on each other’s toes and I don’t really see myself as Mrs Bye.

“My name is what my name is. I see myself as an individual. But that’s OK. I’ve got three kids and they don’t mind.”

Ruby, who has written six books, and Ed do not need to be joined at the hip to be happy.

She said: “I write, he directs — and I never go, ‘Oh, how come you’re not going with me to write?’ I don’t know why our relationship is unconventional but it’s not conservative.

“If my friends ask me to dinner, I don’t necessarily have to bring him because they’re my friends. We’re not addicted to each other’s company or demand that we’re always there.

“I wouldn’t have written these books if I’d have had somebody on my back.”
