Paddy McGuinness has led a rocky love life over the years.

The Take Me Out star, who turns 49 today (August 14) has endured a rather turbulent year after his separation from his wife Christine McGuinness went public.

They had been hitched for 11 years and recently confirmed their split in a joint statement which they both shared on their social media accounts.

Christine and Paddy share three children together, twins Penelope and Leo, nine, and six-year-old Felicity, and as of writing remain living together at their lavish family home.

The couple shared a message regarding their split, which read: "We hadn’t planned on sharing this publicly until we were ready but after the lack of privacy surrounding our personal life, we feel left with no other option but to clarify.

"A while ago we took the difficult decision to separate but our main focus as always is to continue loving and supporting our children.

"This was not an easy decision to make but we’re moving forward as the best parents we can be for our three beautiful children."

They added: "We’ll always be a loving family, we still have a great relationship and still live happily in our family home together.

"We hope this now draws a line under any more unwanted and unnecessary intrusion into our private life.

"Although we work in the public eye we ask kindly if you could respect our wishes for privacy on this matter. We’ll be making no further comments. Loads of love. Paddy & Christine."

Daily star has taken a closer look at Paddy's relationship history.

Love at first sight

In 2007, Paddy and Christine first met and were introduced by a mutual friend at an event.

The pair soon hit it off and within three years got engaged after Paddy popped the question on Christmas Eve in 2010.

Talking about her engagement in her autobiography, Christine wrote: "On Christmas Eve 2010, when I was 23, something quite amazing happened. I was sitting by the fire with Patrick and we were getting in the festive spirit and opening presents together.

"In the middle of the excitement, he disappeared. Eventually, he returned to the lounge and presented me with a Christmas card; 'To my fiancée,' it read. 'I’m not your fiancée, you idiot,' I joked.

"And when I looked up, he was there with a stunning diamond ring – down on one knee."

Married life

In June 2011, Paddy wifed up the Real Housewives of Cheshire star and put on a lavish ceremony for their friends and family.

Their big day took place at Thornton Manor in Cheshire with 200 guests in attendance, including star Rick Astley as a performer and Peter Kay as his best man.

A couple of years later, in 2013, they gave birth to their twins Leo and Penelope, who were followed by their third child Felicity, who was born in 2016.

Nicole Appleton snaps

In 2018, photos emerged of Paddy holding hands with All Saints singer Nicola Appleton on a boozy night out.

Christine told fans how the pictures made her feel in her book, A Beautiful Nightmare, which was released last year.

The former Real Housewives of Cheshire star shared: "I felt physically sick. I ran to the toilet to vomit.

"Still to this day I can remember that absolutely awful pit-of-your-stomach feeling."

Separation saga

In June 2022, rumours started flying that their marriage was on the rocks once more after Paddy had allegedly got his tattoo removed which was dedicated to Christine.

But to the press, she denied this and assured fans that they were in a "really good" place.

One month later, however, the tables turned and the couple officially announced their split while asking for "privacy" for them and their children.

Racy rumours

Paddy has recently returned back to work on Top Gear and back to Instagram following his split.

It comes after claims he'd allegedly kissed a famous TV star last year.

Christine reportedly found out about her husband's snog while filming ITV's The Games in May.

A source told The Sun: ""The crew all knew about the Paddy rumours, and there they were, now working really closely with Christine.
