'I am vain - when one side of my face wasn’t working it felt like the end of the world to me. I tend not to show my emotions so it all just crept up on me. 

'I will hold my hands up; I wasn’t a nice person to live with.’ 

Bell's palsy is a condition that causes temporary weakness or paralysis of the muscles in one side of the face and Kerry, also 34, said George was greatly affected but it.

‘George became a bit paranoid about going out or doing anything because he felt like a monster,' she said. 

‘Even with half his face not working, he is still better looking than all of my exes put together!’

Last month, Kerry was said to have thrown George out of their rented family home in Cinnor, Oxon just nine months after they tied the knot, having struggled to cope with his party lifestyle. 

The couple also reveal why they turned to relationship counselling, with Kerry confirming it saved their marriage. 

The star reveals: ‘We’ve been in floods of tears. The conclusion was that we were both madly in love with each other.’

Kerry is mother to five children, which includes their daughter 13-month-old Dylan-Jorge, as well as her other children Molly, 13, Lilly-Sue, 12, Heidi, eight, Max, seven.

George and Kerry's relationship has been a whirlwind one in which she was engaged after eight months in April 2013 and finally walked down the aisle the following year in September.

Their wedding day was almost cancelled on two occasions; firstly when Kerry went bankrupt in July 2013 and friends hinted that she would prefer to wait to marry her man when she was 'back on her feet'.
