"Yes, he's seen me cry," she admitted. "I know I could call him in the middle of the night if I had a crisis.

"We often have a huddle in the make-up room with the make-up artists before we go on air and have a bit of a bitch about what's going on in our lives – a bit of a gossip.

"He constantly helps and looks after me in a protective way."

"When he comes to pick me up to take me to events and we’re all dressed up, he fills the pockets of his dinner jacket with sweets and hides them all around the garden.

"Then, when he arrives, the kids come running to the front door.

"It’s like Father Christmas has just turned up. It’s a nightmare for whoever is looking after the kids because he revs them up then off we go!"

Before hosting Breakfast with Eamonn and Isabel on GB News, the broadcasters presented Sky News' breakfast programme together until 2016.
