Just recently, Tess gave an insight into their family life and the parenting dynamic. "I'm Mum Cabs, that's my main role in life," she told the Mirror. "Vernon is brilliant with the girls. He's very into getting them outdoors, he'll take them on bike rides or go up into the woods and make a rope swing. He's a really fun dad. It works well between us."

She further shared: "If he kisses me in the kitchen, the 12 year old goes, 'Urgh gross!' She's at that point but she's smiling behind the horror."
