Speaking to the Daily Star, Mary said: “Giles and I were like ships that pass in the night. I got up early, he went to bed late and we rarely even ate together.

“Sitting down and watching television reminded us how much we enjoyed the same jokes.”

How did Mary and Giles handle lockdown?

Former model Mary also revealed that lockdown wasn’t a huge hardship for the couple.

With so many long-term relationships ending because of the pandemic, Mary reassured fans that they stayed strong.

“Lockdown wasn’t a great hardship for us, more like an open prison with comfortable beds. But I know a few couples who have split up because they have decided they can’t stand one another.”
