will make sure they are well looked after. It's very amicable.'

In 2008, the couple had a trial separation for eight months, before reuniting when she starred on Dancing On Ice.

She said: 'Last year was hard for all of us. So it's nice to be immersed in something that is really fun and exciting and difficult. My head can't go anywhere else – I have to be completely focused on the skating.
'It's a welcome relief from the distresses of last year and it helps us put everything else aside.'
In an interview earlier this year, she admitted she was surprised she and Wayne were still together.
She told The Sun in April: 'We have still been working through a lot of stuff but it is good now. I am still constantly gobsmacked we are still together after what we have been through.
'We all have times when it is amazing and times when we are like, “Why are we together” and we probably always will to some degree. Of course it would be amazing to say we will be together for ever but we are constantly growing and changing.
'Who knows where we will be in the future but I like to think we will be together.'
