Chloe is married to rugby star James Haskell and they tied the knot at a country church an intimate ceremony surrounded by friends, family and famous faces on 16 December 2018. In an interview with The Mirror, she explained: "If I call my dad up and James and I have had an argument, he will counsel me through it. One of my biggest downfalls as a person is I find it hard to let things go and move on.

"So, my dad will always tell me, 'Let it go Chloe, this is ridiculous'. He'll put me in my place."

Why doesn't Chloe ask her mother for her opinion? She added that she will "always back James," so she doesn't bother to consult her on such matters.
