Take That fans have pledged their devotion to heartthrob Howard Donald as he has hinted at experiencing challenges in his marriage.

But he also noted how being a parent to their two kids has been "truly testing" and how the couple would "weather through the storm", leading onlookers to wonder how Howard and Katie have been affected by the "trials and tribulations of marriage".

In a post shared with his followers on Instagram and Twitter, Howard lovingly said he was more head over heels for Katie than ever before.

Referring to a "sleepless period" in their lives, Howard also hinted the couple were strong enough to make it through "the storm" by "trying to keep each other warm".

Although most fans remained upbeat about their idol’s cryptic message, nearly all of them hailed Howard for his romantic words.

Another fan concluded: "And that's what marriage is all about."

Earlier this month Howard said he is "open-minded" about his sexuality and admitted he "fancies" both men and women.

He said during an Instragram live video: "Pansexual sounds good. Maybe I should be pansexual. And let's face it, women look at other women sometimes and think, 'Ooh yeah, she's tasty, I fancy her'.

"I've looked at men before and thought, 'Oh yeah, I fancy him, he's a good-looking guy. I wish I looked like that'."
