‘We still live in the same house. But I think both of us right now, we’re very much in the same place, where we’re just, like, just don’t really know what to do or where to go.’

The mum-of-three continued: ‘We’ve been in this [relationship] for 16 years. I’ve been with him since I was 19, so my dating history before him was an absolute mess, then I’ve had this lovely long marriage.’

‘I kind of don’t really know where to go, where to start, and he’s the same, he’s very much the same,’ she confessed about moving on with someone new.

‘He’s tried it and he’s gone, “I’m not quite ready”.’

Christine reckons dating might be ‘easier’ once she and Paddy no longer live together.

The reality star went on to say that, despite having split from Paddy nearly two years ago, she ‘has not been on a date.’

‘I’ve chatted, I’ve had fun at times, I cannot even think about dating or, like, a serious relationship. I get a message and I go, “Ugh, God no”.’

Christine also clarified that she’s never been on a dating site and discussed finding it difficult to know if someone is interested in her romantically or platonically.

‘I just think everyone’s being friendly. If someone goes, “Oh, you look lovely, you look really beautiful”, I’d go, “Thanks, so do you, you look great.”

‘At what point do you kind of assume they might want a bit more?’

Christine has previously been engulfed by rumours but neither has confirmed nor denied.

‘This was not an easy decision to make but we’re moving forward as the best parents we can be for our three beautiful children.

‘We’ll always be a loving family, we still have a great relationship and still live happily in our family home together.’
