The 37-year-old, who is living by herself in a flat, added: "I miss Aljaz so much and it's been so hard seeing him at the studio – because of the rules, I can't touch him or run over and hug him. We speak every night before I go to bed, and thank God for FaceTime.

"Absence has definitely made the heart grow fonder for us, and I know more than ever just how much I really do love him, because I can't wait to get back home," she confessed.
