Loose Women presenter Nadia Sawalha has always been something of an open book when it comes to the ups and downs of her 15-year marriage to husband Mark Aderley.
Last year the 53-year-old revealed that she came close to calling time on her relationship with her TV producer partner following his ongoing battle with alcoholism.
Issuing an ultimatum in a bid to keep her family – which includes daughters Maddie, 14, and Kiki-Bee, 9, – together she confessed, “I said you will not spend another night in this house unless you get help for your alcoholism…
“I knew he had the most incredible heart of gold – the drinking was symptom of other things. He suffered from depression.
“But I knew that I was not going to live with an alcoholic.”
Revealing Mark’s response she continued, “He says thank God I did [give him the ultimatum] as he might not have survived…”
“Mark said there was a point in my menopause when he thought about divorcing me,” she revealed. Attaching a comment to the post she admitted that she was “utterly blindsed” by her husband’s words and thinks he may have said them by “accident”.
Reacting, her fans had a surprisingly light-hearted response to the video.
