In recent weeks, the couple's relationship has hit the headlines after she admitted they were going through a tough time and insisted she "didn't cause this situation".

In her autobiography A Beautiful Nightmare, which was released in November last year, Christine opens up about telling Paddy she was "leaving" the family home as she wasn't enjoying living in Bolton any more.

"I can't stay here anymore. I'm leaving. You can either come with me or you can stay here, but I cannot live in Bolton forever," she told Paddy when the twins were just a year old.

"I just don't know anyone. I don't go out. I stay at home at all the time while you're backwards and forwards to work."

Christine continued: "It was a bit of a breaking point for us, And within a heartbreat, he replied. 'Absolutely, what do you want to do? Where do you want to go? Let's get up a leave".

Paddy and Christine later moved to Cheshire and she revealed that her social life "completely changed".

Christine penned: "I didn't know a single person. People heard we'd moved into the area and instantly sent invitations to go to their house, to BBQs and their salons.

"We both says it's the best thing we ever did, for us as a family and as a couple".

The couple have been together for 15 years but have recently faced difficulties.
