  • Giovanna Fletcher has opened up on her year-long split from husband Tom.

  • The couple eventually wed in 2012 before welcoming three sons.

While they may appear to be madly in love now, things haven't always been easy for Giovanna Fletcher and her husband Tom.

The 35-year-old author and podcast host recently opened up on the couple's split when they were 14, revealing that she even went on to date someone else.

Thankfully, the pair reunited after 14 months apart.

"I had a boyfriend for the 14 months we weren't together, but Tom was always there," she told The Sun on Sunday's Fabulous magazine. "We never left each other alone really."

Speaking about the early stages of their romance, Gi added, "When I met the McFly boys for the first time, Dougie [Poynter] said to me, 'He literally talks about you non-stop'.

"And I remember being in Namibia and thinking about Tom more than I did my boyfriend."

Giovanna and Tom, also 35, tied the knot in 2012 in London, with the McFly star going on to create an epic wedding speech.

Since then, the pair have went on to welcome sons Buzz, six, Buddy, four and two-year-old Max.

Like many, Giovanna has experienced self-doubt over her parenting ability and worried that others are judging her. "I remember early on with Buzz [now 6, who she shares with McFly's Tom Fletcher] being in a restaurant and thinking these two people on a nearby table were really judging me," she told Cosmopolitan in October last year.

"But about half an hour into the meal, they turned around and we got chatting and they were really lovely. So what my mind had been telling me was going on, wasn't actually happening."

However, the experience taught her that changing her own outlook could have a hugely positive impact, adding, "Most people are just going about their day, they aren't judging you."

2020 was a big year for the family, with Giovanna, who hosts podcast Happy Mum, Happy Baby, going on to win I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here.
