Nicole Appleton has been seen leaving her marital home with her suitcase in the wake of the Paddy McGuinness scandal.
Last week it came to light that Nicole and Paddy had been pictured walking arm in arm, and shortly after his wife Christine posted a cryptic tweet about ‘deserving so much more.’
Christine was later pictured distraught in her car with the pair now said to be in crisis talks to save their marriage.
Nicole has since been spotted pulling a huge suitcase away from the home she used to share with Oasis singer Liam Gallagher, although it’s unclear whether it’s due to the furore surrounding her and Paddy or whether she was just off on her hols.
She appeared to be all smiles suggesting that her trip might have been a positive one.
But by the look of the suitcase, either she’s a lover of an outfit change or she’ll be gone for a while.
Nicole was snapped walking closely with the Take Me Out host in Soho on Friday night. Christine and Paddy were later seen having crisis talks in his Land Rover, which they apparently sat in for hours while they allegedly discussed their future.
Both have been seen wearing their wedding rings though, suggesting their marriage is not over yet.
Christine has been married to Paddy since 2011, and they have three kids together – four-year-old twins Penelope and Leo, and one-year-old Felicity. Nicole, who divorced from Liam in 2014, has a 16-year-old son, Gene.
A source told The Sun: ‘It’s clearly a very emotional time for both of them. They obviously have a lot to talk through to decide how they both feel about the situation.
‘Those who know them hope they can work through things, because they’re a lovely couple with wonderful children – but sometimes things just don’t work out.’
Paddy and Nicole have seemingly been friends for a while, interacting with each other several times on social media – although they have since unfollowed each other.
