I didn’t put mine and Paddy’s marriage in this situation – I want to make that clear, says Christine McGuinness

CHRISTINE McGuinness has broken her silence on the speculation surrounding her marriage to Paddy.

The 34-year-old took to Instagram to comment on the claims she and the presenter, 48, are having troubles in their relationship.

She wrote: "Regarding the press...

"There is only one thing I want to make clear right now... I didn't put us in this situation."

Christine also shared a quote that read: "This year I met the most broken version of me, but also the strongest."

The couple, who recently took separate holidays, looked glum while sat in their Mercedes G Class Wagon in The Sun's exclusive pictures last week.

Christine appeared to rub her eyes as the couple sat silently.

Top Gear host Paddy, 48, and his missus were snapped in Macclesfield, Cheshire, on Friday. An onlooker said: “They looked miserable.

“At one point Christine wiped her eyes. They were peering in different directions. Their body language did not seem at all friendly.

“Both looked as if they had the weight of the world on their shoulders.” 

Later in the day, an Instagram message by Christine read: “I feel like I’m in season 5 of my life and the writers are just making ridiculous s**t happen to keep it interesting.”

It comes after we told how Christine was hurt by Paddy’s failure to publicly back her appearance on ITV show The Games.

Last month Paddy took a ten-day break in Portugal with pals.

When he got back, Christine flew to Croatia for five days with girlfriends.

 Among them was ex-footballer Chelcee Grimes, 30, who Christine called her BFF (best friend forever). 

They got close on The Games, a 12-celeb sporting challenge.

In an interview, she called the break “life-changing” but said she missed her and Paddy’s three kids.

When Christine returned, Paddy left to film BBC’s A Question of Sport.

Last week snaps appeared to show he had removed a wedding-ring finger tattoo tribute to Christine.

But it was unclear if the photos were flipped by the mirror mode on a phone camera.
