The couple have daughter Aurelia, two, and son Bodhi, one.
On telling her children about Tom’s death, Kelsey said on Loose Women: “I’ve been really, really honest. I’ve taken advice.
“Bodhi is only 19 months so he has no clue. But even the journey with Aurelia was really hard because when Tom went into the hospice, she was really confused.

“I did say to her he wouldn’t be coming home from the hospice.
“On the Wednesday, when he did actually die, in the morning I was leaving to go to the hospice and I just said to her, ‘I’ve got to go to make sure the angels come and take daddy. The angels are going to collect him.’
“Which is a really hard conversation. The next day I woke up and I had to tell her her dad’s dead.
“This is the advice I got – to be honest. I said, ‘Dad’s dead and he’s not coming back.’ So she’s still trying to digest that.”
Kelsey also revealed Aurelia asks whether he’s coming back.
She said: “When she gets with my mum she’ll be like to my mum, ‘So is daddy actually not coming back?'”
Kelsey said she wants to keep Tom’s memory alive with their children.
She said: “It’s about the kids and learning and celebrating him. I want to be able to talk about their dad…
“Even the final moments were magical. That’s the sort of person he was.”
