She said: ‘We do spend great chunks of time apart and it’s not always easy, but it’s always felt easy in the sense that there never seems to be a problem we can’t overcome and we don’t really argue.

‘There are times when he goes to scary places and I sit there worrying, but you appreciate the times you have, and as long as he comes back safe that’s all that matters.’

Scott added that the couple don’t have the luxury of living together all the time but the effort it takes for them to be together is worth it.

Scott had to go away for work just two days after their wedding and was gone for two weeks, with Kym saying their honeymoon, where they stayed at the Sandals Granada Resort, was the first time she could celebrate being Mrs Radcliffe.

Kym said the highlight of her wedding day, which was at Sandhurst, was being walked down the aisle by her father David, who was previously diagnosed with incurable prostate cancer.

The former Coronation Street star said the family made provisions for her dad to walk her halfway, but he insisted on walking her the whole way.

She said: ‘It’s something I’ll cherish forever. I’m so glad he was well enough to do it.’

Kym had split from Matt Baker three months before sparking up a romance with Scott, after a two year romance.
