Bernie Bourke and Jo Brand’s marriage
Brand married mental nurse Bernie Bourke in Shropshire in 1997. Maisie and Eliza Bourke are their daughters. Although her husband and two daughters are vegetarian, Brand prefers to “pursue pork-pies in service stations when no-one is looking”.

She opened the Adamson Collection’s first major exhibition at Lambeth Hospital in South London in 1997, the first since Edward Adamson, the pioneer of Art Therapy, died in 1996.
