Christine McGuinness is scared to date another man following her split from Paddy McGuinness.

The 35-year-old TV star split from her husband - with whom she shares three children - two years ago and admitted she is not ready to move on with another man just yet.

Speaking on her BBC Two series 'Pilgrimage: The Road Through North Wales', she said: "The only life I've known is with Patrick and I'm not sure what my path is now I'm on my own. I need to figure it out.

"Patrick and I have been separated for almost two years now, but I don't think I've dealt with the separation completely yet and I know that one day I'm going to have to do that.

"Everyone has hard times, everyone has challenges, but if only you could gather all your trauma or your worries and just chuck it away.

"The biggest change is to come, I'm just scared of doing it.

Christine and Paddy, 50, still live together in their family home with twins Penelope and Leo, nine, and Felicity, six.

Christine told The Sun's TV mag: "I don't see myself getting married again. I just don't. I've never had time to myself. I was with Patrick since I was 19 and now I'm single for the first time in a long time.

"I don't need to tell anyone where I'm going or what I'm doing. That is so freeing and something that I'm not sure I want to give away again.'

"There hasn't been an awful lot of change because we are a family, regardless of what's between me and Patrick. We're still in the family home, we're still raising the children together. We've got a good understanding of parenting and how important it is for both of us to be in the children's lives, so we support each other. We both equally want to be there to enjoy those times."
