"Then he would go away for the World Cup, which was six weeks and things like that, then once all that started to shift, we have been in London, a year in Manchester, two years in New York, a year in Derby, and now he is in Liverpool."

The couple, who have been married for six years, are currently based in different cities due to their individual work commitments.

Reflecting on spending so much time apart, Christine added: "So there has always been some form of distance, and I have become very good at making a rented home, a home quite quickly because you can't get your place."
