We’d write each other let­ters that we would open ev­ery Fri­day be­cause that is when we would nor­mally see each other. Then I sent Scott away with a cou­ple of gifts and he had a gift ar­rive for me ev­ery week as well. It was very ro­man­tic.”

Af­ter mov­ing house just be­fore Christ­mas, Kym was due to spend the fes­tive sea­son with her chil­dren, and New Year’s at Scott’s.

She re­veals, “It was lovely to be in our new house – I mean, I don’t do things by halves – and then I couldn’t wait to spend New Year with Scott and his fam­ily in Scot­land. It is very spe­cial for us to be to­gether.”
