Christine McGuinness revealed her mum, Joanne, has ‘been her rock’ during her divorce from Paddy as she ‘looks forward to this year being over.’

The TV personality, 35, and the presenter, 50, announced they had parted ways back in July last year after 11 years of marriage, but later revealed that they ended their relationship earlier in the year. 

Now, Christine has said she is planning to ‘start 2024 with a bang’ following a difficult year. 

Speaking at the Pink Ribbon Foundation Charity Gala at Underglobe in London, she said: ‘She has been my rock and is a huge inspiration to me,’ The Mirror reported. 

Joanne was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2020. In 2021, Christine confirmed that she was in remission and that she herself received a negative test for the BRCA (breast cancer gene).

She continued: ‘Obviously there are a lot of changes going on and it’s not easy but I am really looking forward to 2024.

‘I know you shouldn’t wish your life away but I am looking forward to this year being over and starting next year fresh with a bang. I really want to focus on the positives and make the most of a new year and new opportunities.’

Last month, Christine made a rare statement about her relationship with her ex-husband after the pair celebrated his 50th birthday together.

The model ‘spilled the tea’ about the amicable former couple who live together in their family home to co-parent their children, Penelope, nine, and twins Felicity and Leo, seven.

Taking to her Instagram Stories, she said the family had celebrated TV star Paddy’s 50th together, sharing a shot of his birthday cake.

Hitting back at reports she skipped the occasion, she wrote: ‘Patrick is my ex, my ex of well over a year (let me just remind you, I did not cause the breakdown of our marriage). I have never spoken about this fully and I will also remind everyone that I am not silenced and will speak/when I choose to.

‘I got him a birthday cake, presents and made cards with our children. I done this for our children to celebrate daddy’s birthday…

‘We spent his 50th at home together and we celebrated separately with his friends on various different holidays over the last few weeks… Trust me, I wish I was still on that holiday.’

She continued: ‘Don’t believe everything you read. Yours sincerely, just a mum doing the best she can while living with her ex going through a divorce smiling when she wants to cry and juggling the summer holidays.’

Christine was seen kissing Chelcee Grimes after the split but they appear to no longer be close after unfollowing each other on social media.

The pair, who met on the set of ITV‘s The Games in 2022, have in the past been inseparable, enjoying numerous holidays together and even locked lips during one trip to Ibiza.
