He said: "She is nobody's fool. She is nobody’s pushover. She is the boss in this relationship.

"She’s a domestic goddess, she loves being a mother, she loves walking the dogs - she packs so much into her day. I’ve so much admiration for her, but we are different people.

"Ruth doesn’t talk work. It’s not an ideal situation because I would talk work morning, noon and night. I like to talk work. Ruth doesn’t."

He continued: "Ruth, as we speak, has her hair bunched up and she’s mopping the floor in the kitchen, she loves being domesticated. I’ve never seen anybody with the energy that she has. 

"She is always designing clothes for her QVC range. That seems to be her passion - fashion designing that she has been doing for three years." 

 "She will say she reins me back in and I will say that I encourage her to be more free and more open about things."
