Speaking about sharing an emotional message on Instagram at the time, Davina said: "I thought I would do a quick message and people took that as a cry for help that I was on my own but actually Matthew and I decided, for the kids' sake, that we would all be together this Christmas. We were all together and I wasn’t alone. But it was really sweet."
