And she added a poignant shot of the blue sky with the sun shining through with a heart drawn over it, set to You’ll Never Walk Alone by Gerry and the Pacemakers, the anthem of Liverpool Football Club.

Her devastating loss comes after Christine revealed that her and ex-husband Paddy McGuinness’ three children still don’t know they have split.

The former couple share ten-year-old twins Leo and Penelope, and Felicity, seven, who are all autistic, as is Christine herself.

Speaking to the Mail, she explained she is not deliberately keeping the split secret, but the children struggle to grasp the concept of relationships, so ‘would not understand’.

Paddy and Christine still live together at their family home in Cheshire as well, so not much has changed for them, which is what Christine wants.

She said: ‘I always wanted my children to have both parents involved, regardless of our situation, and I’m happy that that’s the way it is,. They have a mummy and daddy around, who love and support them.

‘We want to share Christmases and holidays, so none of us misses out. And I think we’ve got enough mutual respect for each other to put our differences to one side.

‘One thing that we will always agree on is that we want the children to be impacted as little as possible. We chose to have these children together, regardless of what’s happened between us, and we will co-parent them for as long as they need.’

The couple revealed their separation in July 2022 after 11 years of marriage, but neither of them has spoken publicly about the reasons for their split.

Christine said: ‘Time is definitely a healer. And I’m just very sure about my priorities: my children, my work and then me.’

However, she has admitted she has no interest in dating anyone at the moment, and insisted she won’t be walking down the aisle again. 

She said: ‘I’m pretty certain I’ll never marry again. I married once and thought I’d be married for life. It’s just not something I ever want to do again.

‘I don’t want to explore dating at the moment — I’ve never even seen a dating app — it doesn’t excite me at all.’

However, Christine said that Paddy is free to date whomever he chooses, saying: ‘It’s ­absolutely not my business any more what he does in his private life.

‘I mean, obviously not under the same roof. But he’s free to date outside of the house. It’s his life.

‘If anything changes in either of our personal lives which might affect the children, or he wants to move on into a serious relationship and get his own place, then we would need to sit and talk about it again. But, right now, it’s working for us all.’
