She told The Mirror: He picks up the slack and always has. I couldn’t do what I do if it weren’t for him. He makes me laugh an awful lot. He’s very kind and a brilliant dad.’

The pair share daughter Rosie, 27.

Lorraine added: ‘His idea of hell on earth would be at something like a premiere,’ laughs Lorraine. It would be like having needles stuck in his eyes. That does help. It must be very odd being with someone who enjoys walking down a red carpet.’
