Christine had been pushing for the public disclosure of their split, while comedians were more keen to keep it a secret.

Christine recently disclosed that she has been diagnosed with autism. She previously spoke out about feeling ‘overwhelmed” on her wedding day in 2011 to Paddy, not realizing then that she was actually on the spectrum.

In an excerpt from Christine McGuinness’ Mirror Books biography Christine McGuinness: Beautiful Nightmare, she shared her heart.

She stated that it was also a sad moment because her father didn’t arrive to walk her down her aisle.

The Real Housewives of Cheshire star stated: “There was the heartbreak of my dad not turning up.”

The model suggested that Peter Kay’s best man speech was more of a stand-up comedy than a touching tribute to Paddy, whom he had known since childhood.

She stated: “Peter Kay was his best man. He had to be – they’ve known each other since they were kids.”

The majority of people read Entertainment.

She added: “Peter’s speech felt like it went on forever – it was a stand-up show.

“But the one thing he said that always stuck with me was, ‘As long as you’ve got laughter, you’ve got everything. And you two have that’.”

Christine acknowledged that Paddy’s wise words have been her life motto and they laugh together through every ups and downs.

Christine was open about the difficulties of raising children with autism spectrum disorder, especially twins Penelope, eight-year-old, and Felicity, five-year-old.

She wrote in her new book: “I have been diagnosed as autistic. It’s strange, but I’ve noticed there are little hints throughout my life that I’m autistic and more like my children than I ever could have imagined.

“My issues with food, my social ­struggles, how hard I find it to make friends and stay focused, and my indecisiveness. My eldest daughter Penelope was inspired by the way I glide through my life.

“It all makes sense now. And as much as I’m not totally surprised, it’s still been emotional for me to accept, but it’s a relief as well.”
