Speaking about the breakdown of her nine-year marriage, Samantha told OK!: “Our family home is big enough and we’re coexisting happily. There’s no rush to change things.

“But now feels like the right time to be honest and admit that we are no longer together.

“We’ve been happily living together ever since. It’s bizarre but these have probably been the best years we’ve had as a family.”
