And the couple, who tied the knot back in 2015, have been forced to defend themselves over split speculation after the TOWIE hunk moved to LA recently – with the actress filming for Our Girl on the other side of the world.

However, the former Coronation Street star revealed the break-up claims could not be further from the truth.

Opening up about her relationship with the reality star, she blasted the rumours that constantly plague their relationship.

“It’s been hard enough being away anyway, but then to contend with all that,” she told The Sun. “It just comes from nowhere.

“I don’t understand how a couple can’t have their separate careers, and why can’t a newly married woman go off and do her job and a husband go off and do his?

“I don’t understand why that’s a negative. It should be celebrated.”

“I’d say there is a slight degree of sexism to it,” she continued. “I always think it’s good we’ve got our own careers.

“He’s put all his effort into that and I’m putting all my effort into this.

“And for me, I just find it really exciting that we’re working so hard separately, for our different careers.”

“Don’t get me wrong, we miss each other so much but we are in constant contact with WhatsApp and FaceTime,” she said.

“It’s actually worked out quite well, where he has been in America working hard doing his thing and I’ve been here.
