Looking back on her marriage in 1996, Liza said: “I married Peter, and he didn’t tell me he was gay. Everyone knew but me. And I found out… well, let me put it this way: I’ll never surprise anybody coming home as long as I live. I call first!”

Liza Minnelli and Jack Haley Jr, 1974-1979
In 1974, Liza moved onto Jack Haley Jr whom she met through her mother, Judy Garland, after she starred in The Wizard Of Oz and Jack’s father played the Tin Man.
The engagement ring Haley presented to Liza was a simple diamond and sapphire ring.
Tobias puts a £2,000 price tag.
For their intimate wedding of only eight people, she wore a buttercup yellow pantsuit.
