Molly has been living in Ireland with Brian’s parents over the last year, as she chose to attend a school in Dublin so she could do an extra year of science subjects to help with her future career plans.

Kerry previously told OK! Magazine: “She wants to get really good grades in her GCSEs so she’s going to Ireland to do a transition year.

“This will give her an extra year of biology and sciences.

“She will be massively homesick. But I’ve told her that I think that it’s the right thing to do. Her mind is like a sponge and just soaks everything up.”
