Christine McGuinness has shared a piece of advice her grandmother gave her, revealing that it once saved her marriage to Paddy.
Mother of three Christine has been candid about the struggles that she and Take Me Out host Paddy have been going through in recent months.
And while the star has admitted things have been "difficult" lately, she also recently revealed that her grandmother gave her a sound piece of advice, which has helped her navigate troublesome times with her 48 year old partner of 14 years.
In her autobiography, A Beautiful Nightmare, Christine, 34, recalled her grandmother saying: “Marriage is difficult. I’ve been through it all with Grandad, and look at us now. I wouldn’t be without him.”
Christine went on to add: "That advice has always stuck with me. People go through difficult times in marriage, family, work, life – everything… I wanted my children to have a dad at home.
"It didn’t matter to me if I’d forgiven him, if I was OK with it or if I trusted him. All of that didn’t count, I just wanted my children to have their father there – something I never had."
Speaking candidly about recent marriage troubles, Christine admitted last week that she's currently feeling "all over the place".
She also cryptically declared: "There is only one thing I want to make clear right now. I didn't put us in this situation."
Christine has also shared a number of social media posts appearing to allude to her relationship.
One read: "Look at you rising up, completely recreating yourself, making positive choices, thinking new thoughts, creating new habits & stepping into a life that actually lights you up. You're glowing girl."
"This year I met the most broken version of me, but also the strongest," she added in another.
Her latest comments come after reports claiming Paddy "cheated on her with a co-star".
Christine allegedly found out her husband kissed another woman when she was working on The Games earlier this year.
A source told The Sun: “Everyone was talking about it [the kiss]. The crew all knew about the Paddy rumours, and there they were, now working really closely with Christine.
"It was one of those shows where everyone bonded and everyone loved Christine."
When contacted by OK!, a representative for Christine said the star is "dealing with her marriage privately".
OK! has also contacted a representative for Paddy for comment.
