When quizzed on challenges she faced while Vernon was competing in the ITV reality show, Tess revealed that several appliances in the house broke.
She divulged: “The printer, the dishwasher, the dryer [all broke] – basically everything you need when solo parenting.
“I was like, ‘Okay, Vern, I really do need you around the house’…we’re soulmates, me and Vernon.”
Speaking to Women’s Health, she added: “It’s been a ride. And I love him more than ever.”
