In the clip posted to Instagram on Wednesday, the TV star looked windswept as she walked along a sandy beach and spoke directly into the camera about a problem she was facing with her husband of 19 years, Mark Adderly.

"That's what a good marriage is about, isn't it? It's about compromise so I've said that…" she began before she placed her hand on her mouth to stifle her sobs.

The TV star had her followers well and truly fooled and many rushed to the comment section to react to the hilarious video. "Jesus I was really worried, thought you were gonna say divorce… thank God it was just football!" one said. Another echoed this, writing: "So was I. I was waiting for the D word," while many more complimented Nadia on her convincing acting.

One of Nadia's followers came up with an ingenious solution to her problem. "Paint some eyes on your eyelids and have a nap," they suggested.

"OH MY GOD… I was seriously worried," Davina McCall commented while Nadia's fellow Loose Women star Denise Welch was also left in stitches at the video. Alongside a string of laughing face emojis, she wrote: "Luckily I married the one man in the UK who hates football as much as me!!!"

The light-hearted clip comes days after Nadia posted an emotional and expletive-ridden video in response to the discovery that Matt Hancock had broken Covid-19 guidelines and struck up a romance during lockdown with his aide Gina Coladangelo.

She criticised the former Health Secretary's actions, telling her followers that her "heart had broken" for all the fellow parents and families who have been forced to stay apart from each other since the pandemic began.
