Christine McGuinness has revealed she and her husband Paddy are going through a ‘very, very difficult time’, after intense speculation that the couple’s marriage is on the rocks.
Describing her mental state as “all over the place” in a new interview, the 34-year-old shared that she wasn’t going to put up with the things from Paddy that she might have had in the past.
Last week, Christine said there could be problems in her marriage after she flew off on a girls’ holiday with her friend Chelcee Grimes, and then shared a slew of cryptic messages.

“I can’t deny that we’re going through a very, very difficult time,” she shared.
But keen to clear her name, the former model added that she was not the one who caused the predicament.

‘It’s just – we’ve been together 15 years, 11 years married: we’re going to have our ups and downs – but this situation at the minute – I don’t want to talk too much about it but I’ll just say I haven’t Don’t ’cause this situation,’ she continued.
Calling the situation “ups and downs”, Christine added that “the family bond will always be there no matter what – as she explained the pair met when she was a teenager”.
MailOnline has contacted a representative for Paddy McGuinness for comment.
It comes after a flurry of rumors that the couple have been on the rocks in recent months, as they vacationed overseas separately last month, while currently in Thailand.
And after his recent appearance on ITV’s The Games, fans were quick to notice a lack of public support from Paddy, with the pair also caught up in what appeared to be a tense conversation.
Ups and downs: “It’s just that — we’ve been together 15 years, 11 years of marriage: we’re going to have ups and downs — but this situation right now — I don’t want to talk too much about it, but I’m just gonna say I didn’t cause this situation,” she continued.

Last week, she appeared to respond to rumors via social media, reposting a series of quotes about love and trust.
In the posts, the TV personality said that although she has sometimes been “the most broken version” of herself, she has also been the “strongest”.
Christine also shared a series of cryptic motivational quotes on “making positive choices” and “recreating yourself completely.”
She wrote on Instagram, “As far as the press…There’s only one thing I want to clear up now…I didn’t put us in this situation.”
While a source recently told The Mirror that: ‘It’s been a very difficult time lately. The issues are very current.
Explaining that they met when she was a teenager, Christine added: ‘What I could have put up with in the past, I probably couldn’t put up with now, and the same goes for him’
