"At first it took a lot of getting used to because we do enjoy our freedoms, the simple things like just nipping to the shop or going out for a beer with your mates and general social gatherings that you take for granted and once they've gone you think, 'Right, what am I going to do?'" he told the Humans of XS Manchester podcast.

"The positive thing is that it's enabled us as a family to really get to know each other even better than you would as a family."

Over the years, their relationship has been under scrutiny, with both parties admitting that marriage isn't all plain sailing. The admission comes after Vernon confessed to texting glamour model Rhian Sugden in 2010 and again in 2015.

"When you think about it when you're in a relationship, a working relationship, you wake up, you go to work, you get back and you have your dinner, kids doing their homework, you go to bed. So you only really see each other for four or five hours in a day, if that," the doting dad explained.

He added: "When you're in lockdown and you're spending 24/7 with each other it really gives you the chance to really kind of re-connect and get to know each other better, not better, but you really get under the skin of your relationships with your kids and your missus."
