Paddy McGuinness has broken his social media silence following his marriage split from wife Christine.
The couple, who married in 2011 and share three children, confirmed their separation last Friday (July 22).
That’s because, they reasoned, there has been a “lack of privacy surrounding our personal life”.

Haribo sweets, protein bars and biscuits were also among the haul.

Romance rumours amid split
Following Paddy and Christine’s statement, tabloid reports have alleged his friendship with a female BBC presenter contributed to the couple’s current relationship status.
An insider alleged to the news outlet: “Paddy had been messaging the woman for some time. They were direct messages and were quite friendly.
“It’s unclear how they met but they followed one another for a while.
“There have been various issues between him and Christine, but this was definitely one of the driving forces that began to make them assess their future as a married couple.”
