“I just felt quite ex­hausted, you know, I’d been on tour for three years or some­thing. And I’d just met this, well, I didn’t meet him, be­cause I met him when I was 15, but I got to­gether with Sam, who’s now my hus­band and I wanted to give that a go. You know, just to get mar­ried and have chil­dren,” she said.

It’s about how long I can leave my kids for be­fore they start go­ing mad, or how long I can be away from them,” Allen said.
