“It’s my decision… do I love Wayne… yes I do. If I didn’t then I wouldn’t be trying to make it work.

“I know I would be fine on my own, with just me and my children, but I don’t want to live like that, I want to try and continue our marriage and live as a family, because that’s what I want to do.”

Childhood sweethearts Coleen and Wayne wed in June 2008 in a lavish ceremony in Portofino, Italy.

They welcomed first child, Kai, in 2009 and in May 2013 the pair welcomed second child Klay.

Three years later they had son Kit and fourth boy Cass Mac Rooney was born on February 15 2018.
