CHRISTNE McGuinness has revealed she and Paddy still haven't told their children they've split up.

The former couple are parents to twins Penelope and Leo, nine, and Felicity, six.

She said: "The children don't know any different and they're growing up in a happy and loving home – I just want it to continue like that."

Christine also confessed she thinks she'll struggle if Paddy, 49, ever does move out of the family home.

Speaking to Woman's Own, she said: "We don't know what the future holds but right now it works.
