Paddy McGuinness’ wife Christine breaks her silence on split rumours as she reveals ‘difficult times’

They've been together for 14 years

The wife of Paddy McGuinness, model Christine, has broken her silence after rumours that they had split hit the headlines.

At the end of last month, Paddy sparked rumours he had “split” from Christine.

The rumours started after it was reported that Paddy had removed his tattoo tribute to Christine – a love heart on his wedding finger.

However, in a recently uploaded Instagram video, it was claimed that the tattoo was nowhere to be seen.

Of course, the video was taken in selfie mode, so could have been flipped, meaning the heart tattoo is still on his other hand.

Paddy breaks his silence

Paddy himself broke his silence a few days later, sharing a message to Christine.

We have had difficult times but when I look back at our marriage and see where we are now, I think, wow, you know, we’ve done alright!

It came after Christine posted about her new project on social media.

Paddy indicated his admiration for Christine and her forthcoming documentary by typing six clapping emojis, as if giving applause.
