Paddy and Christine share three children together

Paddy's upbeat appearance comes in the wake of his shock split from his wife of 11 years Christine McGuinness. Last month, the couple announced their decision to go their separate ways after 15 years together.

Announcing the news via Instagram, the duo candidly penned: "This was not an easy decision to make but we're moving forward as the best parents we can be for our three beautiful children.

The duo live in Cheshire

"We'll always be a loving family, we still have a great relationship and still live happily in our family home together."

Christine and Paddy, 48, are proud parents to Penelope, nine, Felicity, six, and Leo, nine.
