Josie Gibson has moved her ex-partner back into her Bristol home to help her look after their son Reggie during the coronavirus crisis.
Josie and ex-boyfriend Terry split when their baby son was just four months old but now the pair are back under the same roof – and Josie says a permanent reunion could be on the cards.
Appearing on Loose Women today, Josie told the panel that she and Terry have ‘never got on so well’ and that the COVID-19 pandemic has made her re-evaluate what’s important in life.
The This Morning regular went on to admit she ‘loves Terry to pieces’ and hopes they get back together.
What did Josie say?
“He’s one of those people you can’t live with, but can’t live without,” Josie told the Loose Women panel.
It’s only taken a pandemic and a year-and-a-half and we’ve never got on so well.
“We were really scared because he’s severely asthmatic – he finds it hard to breathe at the best of times.
“We waited for three weeks and none of us had any symptoms. On the fourth week I learnt about the viral load – so I couldn’t take Reggie to the supermarket any more, so I said: ‘You’re going to have to move in.’
“So he’s moved in and it’s only taken a pandemic and a year-and-a-half and we’ve never got on so well.”
Is a reunion on the cards?
As the discussion moved on, the panel asked Josie if she and Terry could become a couple again, with Josie hinting that a reunion could well be on the cards.
Seeing him and Reggie together is just golden.
“We still stay in separate rooms but yeah, I love him to bits. When you’ve got something like this, you realise little things are so trivial,” she said.
“You realise your family – big things – are important. The things we used to argue about seem so trivial.”
Asked if Terry will continue living with them after the coronavirus crisis has ended, Josie replied: “I hope so. I really, really hope so. Seeing him and Reggie together is just golden. It’s so lovely.”
New year bust up
Last year Josie revealed she’d had the worst New Year ever as she was forced to move out to a hotel with Reggie following an argument with Terry.
She said: “I’d never go back now. I need somewhere secure for me and Reg. I never wanted to be a single mother, obviously, but there are things you can’t let go.”
