And speaking in a new interview with Reveal magazine, Kerry said it “feels good” to finally be on amicable terms with her first husband, who is the father of her eldest children, Molly, 16, and Lilly-Sue, 14.

“He was the love of my life, Brian. I’m not going to deny it,” she said.

“I was devastated when we split up.”

“It’s taken us so many years to get to where we are today,” she said. “If I was still with [ex-husband] George [Kay] and Brian had wanted to come to [see me in] the panto, there’d have been uproar.

“It was nice for me to be stood there with Brian and his girlfriend. It feels good to get along. ”

Kerry also said she’d been “dying” to meet Brian’s partner Danielle because their daughters “absolutely idolise” the PE teacher.

“Our relationship is the best it has ever been. There are no fights or arguments, its all good now. It’s taken a long time to get there but I’m glad it’s like that.”
