CELEBRITY Gogglebox star Sunetra Sarker has revealed her unconventional marriage hack that keeps her and husband Scott’s romance alive.
The 47-year-old star shocked Lorraine Kelly when she explained how they have always lived apart – from when they first started dating in 2012, right up to their marriage now.

The decision is what made the most sense for the couple as it meant that neither would have to go without seeing their children from previous relationships.
The Casualty actress told Lorraine: “We have the most unconventional marriage, and I think it’s so normal to us because we’ve been doing it since we were dating.
“When we met back in 2012, Scott lived in his house with his children in Kent, and I was with Noah in Bristol.”
Sunetra went on: “And obviously we dated and this is the way it worked, the kids got used to it, and we got used to it, and we got married and everyone was adamant on where are we going to live? Who’s going to choose?

“And I remember thinking that I don’t like the thought of somebody having to choose. Why does one of us have to give up seeing our kids as much as we want to for the other? It’s not our kids fault, is it? That we fell in love.”
As she laughed at their quirky set-up, the star added: “We just decided to carry on and we got married, and went on honeymoon, and got off the plane – he went that way and I went that way.
“We do a week on and a week off, and it does really work. We are very fortunate it does work, it’s great!”
