“I don’t believe in sharing personal details especially when I’m trying to work through them myself.

“My husband had an affair last year, and I only found out in January. I really struggled in the aftermath processing what had happened & with my mental health.”

Fran continued: “We’ve since separated, however we are on really good terms. Our main priority is co-parenting Oscar and ensuring he knows he has two parents who love him very, very much.

“Children shouldn’t have to pay for parents’ mistakes, and I’m a firm believer that families come in so many different forms there is no “normal” anymore.”

Along with separating from Neal, it’s been a tough year for Fran after her NHS nurse mother-in-law was mugged at knifepoint in April.

Gillian Bishop was rammed from her bike on Tuesday while travelling home from a shift at Queens Park Medical Centre in Stockton.

She was finishing her first shift back at the Queens Park Medical Centre in Stockton since recovering from Covid-19 symptoms.

Fran wrote on Twitter at the time: “Absolutely disgusting what’s happened to my Mother-In-Law yesterday. Neal is distraught.
