Christine then spoke of the “ups and downs” they’ve been having.

“We’ve been together 15 years, 11 years married, we are going to have ups and downs. But this situation at the minute, I don’t want to go into it too much, but I will just say that I didn’t cause this situation,” she claimed.

Always be a family ‘no matter what’

Christine did say the couple had “grown as a family” since having children and called that “amazing”.

She also admitted that “everyone grows and changes”.

“I was a teenager when I met him and I’m a 34-year-old woman now, so I suppose what I might have put up with in the past, I probably wouldn’t put up with now and same for him,” she said.

Looking to the future, she said that “family bond” would “always be there no matter what”.

And added that you’ve “got to expect” to have “ups and downs” when you’ve “been together for so long”.
