Speaking during a debate on today’s Loose Women about whether children should be able to have mobiles and social media, Linda said: “It is really addictive. 

“I was addicted to social media. Remember I couldn’t be anywhere without my phone. I’d wake up in the night and be looking at social media or whatever.

“It nearly ended my marriage because we would be sitting watching a film and I would be on my phone. 

“He’d go ‘are you going to watch the film with me or not?’ and then he’d go out and get the hump.”

Linda and Mark have known each other since they were children and she used to baby sit him.

They have two children together – Louis, born in 1992 and Bobbie in 1996.

The couple have been through their fair share of trials including a miscarriage, the sudden death of Linda’s dad from lung cancer aged just 57,  her mum’s death from stomach cancer back in 2012 and son Louis’s diagnosis with PTSD following the death of his friend Ben Kinsella.

Back in 2017, the Birds of a Feather star described a “tough few years”, which put a strain on their marriage.

She said: “I love him. We’ve had a few tough years when we could have easily called it a day, but we didn’t.”

“We just get on really well, we love our kids and our grandkids more than anything else in the world.”
