The couple, who have been married for six years, are currently based in different cities due to their individual work commitments. With Frank mainly based in Liverpool and Christine in London with their children, things can get "intense".

She explained: "I've been doing this drive since Frank went in January and it can be intense.

"It took me four hours last time, with the two kids and the dog! But when we get there, it's brilliant. The distance means Frank and I are still excited to see each other."

The couple's London home is just a short drive from the ITV studios, which means Christine can be back with her children Patricia, three, and 16-month-old Freddie in time for work.

"I'm blessed to live close to the studios," she said. "We've often thought about moving out of London, but on my drive in at 6am I think, 'No way!' We have a babysitter, but I'm home by 11am and that's me done for the day. I couldn't do 12-hour days like I used to."
