The marriage didn't last long, however, and the couple went their separate ways after just six months.

She told the Daily Mail: "I just wanted someone to look after me. I knew it wasn’t love."

Their divorce was finalised in 2003.

The couple met in 2014 and tied the knot two years later at Peckforton Castle in Cheshire.

They share five kids, with Jamie adopting Megan and Taylor, Rebekah's children from previous relationships.

They are also doting parents to five-year-old Sofia, three-year-old Finley, and one-year-old Olivia Grace and Jamie shares a five-year-old daughter, Ella, with his ex-partner.

Speaking about their big family, Rebekah told The Sun: "A blended family is never easy [but] relationships fail and that is just part of life." 

She went on: "I think as long as you provide stability and you are happy, then your children bounce off your vibes."
