She wrote in her column for Red magazine: "Love takes hard work - and no one wants to hear that.

"This year, Jesse and I hit a rough patch - he was away, touring relentlessly, I was trying to keep my own career going while looking after our kids and we were both desperately clinging on to our marriage."

The couple's problems eventually came to a head with a two-hour "screaming match" where they worried their "love had gone".

We were both desperately clinging on to our marriage.

She added: "One blustery and grey day, this culminated in a screaming match in our local park, which lasted about two hours until we both broke and cried.

"Luckily, my husband is the most emotionally literate person, so we can be completely vulnerable in front of one another.

"In the midst of this gargantuan row, I think we both wondered where the love had gone and worried that it might not come back."
