"Before I even met Eamonn, I was a big fan," she said in an interview with Prima. "I used to watch him on GMTV and I always thought he was handsome, funny and a brilliant journalist. It was nerve-racking when I did meet him; I remember thinking, 'Oh, my God, that's Eamonn Holmes!"

"Eamonn and I can have big rows and argue, then ten minutes later we're laughing about something," she added. "We've been together 23 years so it has been a long and happy relationship but we have our moments.

"There are times when he really annoys me and I really annoy him and there are times when I think, 'Get out of my face.' Obviously, you're not always going to get on, but you have to make it work. Underneath it all, we know we have a strong relationship."
