The Strictly Come Dancing beauty later raised eyebrows as she appeared solo on the red carpet at the OK! Beauty Awards 2017, on November 28, while her husband appeared on It Takes Two.
She has now addressed reports their marriage is in trouble, admitting their romance did ‘take work’.
“We’re just a regular couple, we’ve been together for seven years and like any other relationship you have your ups and downs and nothing is ever perfect so you make it work,” she told The Sun.
“Everything is fine. It adds a little bit of spark to the relationship and it just means that we care about each other.
“We just need to keep pushing and relationships take work.
“It’s not as easy as you think, especially being in a job like Strictly.”

Karen’s words come after Kevin appeared to discuss their relationship, after being eliminated from Strictly on November 26.
Following his exit, the professional dancer – who was paired with Susan Calman – said: “I’d like to say a couple of thank yous.
“When Strictly is on, I’m not the easiest to live with – I go a bit mad, so thanks to my wife for putting up with me.”
The pair have been together for seven years, having met each other on the BBC show.
They recently celebrated their second wedding anniversary.
