Michelle, who married Mark in 2015, admitted she’s now feeling much more relaxed about their situation.
She told The Sun‘s Fabulous magazine: “I know there’s interest [in our relationship] but I just thought: ‘I’m not feeding it any more.’ And by stopping that, we’ve taken back control. Massively. It was relentless every week – especially because we lived away from each other.”
She added: “We get that we’re in the public eye and have a public relationship, but we’re normal people at the end of the day, and we don’t need to give all of ourselves up.
“I feel like we’ve regained control and now we don’t read anything in the news anyway. If someone asks if I’ve seen a story, I literally haven’t.”
The star said a few years ago she would have “read it and it would have really upset me” but now, she ‘doesn’t care’.
Earlier this year, Mark quit his LA-based TV presenting job to rejoin Michelle in the UK.
The couple have spent the last few years managing a long distance marriage, as their respective work commitments kept them apart.
Mark spent two years living in LA and working as a presenter for entertainment show Extra, while Michelle remained in the UK filming BBC drama Our Girl.
After making the decision to move back, Mark raved about how much his wife’s support had meant to him while he was away.
Speaking to The Sun he said he could never have embarked on a US career without her.
“She’s the best wife I could have dreamed of, the most important person in my life and the one who helped convince me to go to America in the first place,” he said.
“She always supported my decision and never once asked me to come home.”
