During the BBC show last year, Faye admitted that it was hard being away from her family due to the hectic schedule. "It's always tricky being away from home," she told The Sun. "You just have to keep your head above water. We’ve just got to keep really tight as a family unit and make sure we communicate - I think that's the only way. But it is tough being away from home because we miss each other." The singer and her husband Michael have been married for nine years, are also proud parents to their son, nine-year-old Benjamin.

"Happy 9th Anniversary @Faye_Tozer I love you more than chocolate," he said. "Nine years ago, right now, I was sitting on the sofa feeling rough, happy, scared, nervous, excited, sick and most of all confused. How could someone like @Faye_Tozer want to marry my dozy ass? Well, I still think it was the best decision she ever made, we rock!"
