However, Linda says their love for each other has pulled them through.

“I love him,” she says. “We’ve had a few tough years when we could have easily called it a day, but we didn’t.”

“We just get on really well, we love our kids and our grandkids more than anything else in the world.”

The couple, who have three children Lauren, 34, Louis, 24, and Bobbie, 20 – and two grandchildren Lila, five, and Betsy, six months – have had to deal with some traumatic moments over the course of their 27-year marriage which put a strain on their relationship.

Linda suffered a miscarriage 23 years ago which her husband took badly and blamed himself for.

Speaking recently about the tough time, Linda recalled how she found out she had lost the baby.

“I went to the hospital for a check-up and they started to scan me when the nurse went really quiet and said, ‘I’m just going to have to call a doctor’ so I knew something was wrong.”

But Linda has also had to deal with the pressure of being a strong mum and daughter when her loved ones have faced terrible situations.

For years, she supported her daughter Lauren during her battle with bulimia when she was a teenager, which she found very hard to deal with.
