Loose Women panellist Nadia Sawalha, 56, has been married to her second husband Mark Adderley since 2002. The couple share two children together: Kiki and Maddy.
The former EastEnders actress has now admitted there has been ups and downs in their relationship, as she talked about working with Mark on their YouTube channel, The Sawalha-Adderleys.
The couple regularly give fans an insight into their home life and speak openly about overcoming hurdles.
Nadia has credited the YouTube channel for bringing them closer together as it forced them to speak openly about their struggles.
Discussing their relationship problems in their How To Stay Married vlog, the ITV panellist admitted it was important for them to face them head-on.
Nadia explained: “It can be difficult because we do talk really openly, as we have our marriage films that we put up.
“That’s a really difficult thing to do because every week, once a week, we sit opposite each other with no editing and we talk about something that’s difficult to talk about, something in our marriage.”
She continued: “People might look at that and go, ‘Oh my gosh how can they do that’. But actually, there’s a real discipline to it.
“So many people, their marriages and their relationships don’t actually talk to each other about the uncomfortable stuff.”
The ITV star revealed she often watches their vlogs back and believes her family are “completely barking mad”.
“I really, really, really do think it has [brought us closer together]. We have had to interrogate a lot about our relationship,” Nadia continued to the Daily Star.
“Sometimes when I get time to watch the blogs back, it’s really lovely to think ‘oh my god, this family is completely barking mad’.”
Despite the difficulties, the couple have since made plans to renew their wedding vows this year.

Meanwhile, Nadia took to Instagram stories and thanked her other half for his kind words in honour of her birthday today.
In view of her 331,000 followers, she shared a selfie snap with the caption: “Thank you @markadderley for your beautiful words… feeling very loved.”
Her post comes after her husband shared a series of photos of Nadia as he praised his wife for being “caring and emphatic”.
Mark penned: “YOU MAKE ME THINK OF SO MANY WORDS: warm, caring, supportive, funny, out-of-tune, naughty, silly, kind, thoughtful, sustaining, selfless, witty, sharp, incisive, smart, considerate, compassionate, empathetic, f***ing frustrating, chaotic, unpredictable, stressful, instinctive, exciting, infuriating, hysterical, loyal, unconditional, sexy, wise, beautiful.
“Every single thing you are… is every single thing I love about you … negative AND positive … joyful AND frustrating … I love how REAL you are … I TRUST you … I RESPECT you.”(sic)
“… And you are a great, great friend as much as a wonderful partner,” Mark continued.
“Happy Birthday sweetheart … you bring so much joy and laughter and honesty to so, so many people … ALL my love, the fella.”
