Wayne spoke to panellists Charlene White, Jane Moore, Nadia Sawalha and Gloria Hunniford.

On missing Frankie, he said: “Yeah, we are, loads, me and the boys.

“They’ve been very emotional, but they’ve got used to it a little bit now, they love seeing her on the telly.”

People associate Frankie with being a bit miserable

He added: “The boys are so attached to Frankie sometimes when it comes to cuddles and all of that. I’ve actually managed to get some now. But I’m sure that will end as soon as she gets back, especially Carter.”

Wayne went on talk about his wife’s qualities, insisting that she isn’t “moody”.

The dad-of-two added: “I think she’s doing great. We talked a lot before she went in. Frank does a lot for mental health and she obviously gets… not tired because she wants to help out with mental health.

“She’s funny, witty, she takes the mickey out of herself and she’s gone in there and shown that already.”

Frankie, 32, and Wayne, 41, share two sons together – Parker, seven, and Carter, aged five.
