Discussing his marriage with brunette beauty Michelle, he told The Sun: ‘Nobody needs to know how much Michelle and I see each other.

‘We always make it work. It’s just a lot of travelling really, up and down the motorway.

‘We both work hard, she works hard, there are no rules in life, are there?

‘I might see her for five days, go to work for a day then see her for another five, we see each other plenty, people don’t need to worry about that.’

The actress hit out at sexist double standards – admitting queries about when she is going to have a baby do ‘bother’ her now. 

In an interview with Cosmopolitan magazine, she said: ‘A few years ago it didn’t bother me and I answered the question. 

‘But now I think, ”I don’t need to answer that because nobody knows what goes on behind closed doors”. 

‘I remember when I finished Our Girl people were like, ”Is it because you’re going off to have a baby?” 

‘I know for a fact if Mark finished a job, nobody would ask him if he was going to have a baby. It’s not fair. It does make me feel frustrated.’

Michelle and husband Mark have been together since late 2012 when they met while they were both on holiday in Dubai.

The former TOWIE star popped the question nine months later and the pair married in a lavish ceremony at Hengrave Hall in Suffolk in May 2015.
