Loose Women star Nadia Sawalha, 55, and her husband Mark Adderley, tied the knot in 2002. The couple share two children together, daughters, Kiki-Bee Adderley, 12, and 17-year-old Maddy Adderley.

The small-screen star has been holed up at home with her family during the nationwide lockdown amid the coronavirus pandemic.

As the UK Government began to ease lockdown restrictions, Nadia previously dished on her struggles in lockdown and admitted she feared for the future.

Speaking exclusively to, the Loose Women star said: “I mean I can do lockdown, that’s fine but my worst times are when I think about the future and what the future looks like. I can’t see what it looks like.

“And my best advice to myself is to allow myself to feel that bad.”

Nadia went on to say: “I did some cooking and all of that.

“But I kept taking myself off because sometimes you have to sit and feel bad about yourself and go it’s ‘OK to feel like s**t’”.

The ITV presenter admitted she went through a moment of “survivor’s guilt” because she has everything she needs.

“I’ve got survivor’s guilt,” Nadia explained. “I’ve got a nice house, nice garden, nice husband, two very annoying dogs, and I can cook.”

She continued: “All of those things make for a very bearable lockdown.

“So I think most days I have enormous gratitude and other days I’ve been really, really down.”

Meanwhile, Nadia recently enjoyed her first meal out with husband Mark as lockdown measures eased, allowing Britons to visit pubs and restaurants at a social distance.

This was the first time the couple had a meal out together in four months.
