Emma Willis admits she is too ‘paranoid’ to be on her own

It started after she became a mum

Emma Willis, host of The Voice Kids, has opened up about feeling “paranoid” and having to have people stay over so she’s not on her own.

The former Big Brother presenter, 44, admitted feeling much more uneasy when she’s alone since having children with her husband, Busted rocker Matt Willis.

What did Emma Willis say about feeling paranoid?

The couple, who tied the knot in 2008, have three kids together – Isabelle, 11, Ace, eight and Trixie, four.

Speaking on Matt’s podcast When No One’s Watching, the couple said Emma’s pals or a member of her family stay at the house whenever Matt’s away with his band.

The singer’s pal and podcast co-host, Matt Richardson, joked that Emma was no longer “loose and fun”.

Emma told him: “I think I have become immensely paranoid about safety as I’ve one, got older and two, had kids.”

They also talked about her forcing Matt to give up his motorbike because it’s too dangerous.

She confessed: “I don’t let him do anything. I’ve taken everything he found fun out of his life and made him immensely safe to be a husband and father.

“I think I use to be quite a daredevil. It’s honestly, really, since I’ve had children that the paranoia has really kicked in.”

When Matt’s away on tour

Busted singer Matt then said: “I remember it getting a bit weird when we would go on tour, somebody would move into our house. One of Emma’s friends would move into our house when I was away on tour.”

Matt Richardson then joked: “That’s called an affair!”

The paranoia has really kicked in.

Emma and Matt celebrated their 12th wedding anniversary earlier month.

And in a sweet tribute to her husband on Instagram, the presenter thanked him for putting up with her “bossiness”.

She gave fans a sneak peek at their big day with a series of snaps, including one that showed the couple locking lips after saying their vows. In another, Matt gave her a piggy back.
