Tess Daly has given her first TV interview since husband Vernon Kay admitted to sending racy texts to other women, admitting: ‘It’s been tough.’

And in the words of Cheryl Cole‘s hit single, Tess proclaimed that her marriage ‘is worth fighting for.’

The presenter spoke frankly about the scandal that rocked her marriage on The One Show last night, and confirmed that she would be sticking by her husband after ‘10 great years‘ together.

It’s been tough as you can imagine, but I’ve taken some time out to think things through,’ she said.

At the end of the day, we’ve had 10 great years together, we’ve got two beautiful kids, and we both think that’s worth fighting for.’

The couple made their first public appearance together since the scandal at the beginning of the month, co-hosting The Prince’s Trust Celebrate Success awards.

Dealing with it in private is difficult enough, but dealing with it in the public is even harder,’ she told hosts Christine Bleakley and Adrien Chiles.

I’ve had so much support from everyone that I meet really, not just family and friends – that has really touched me a lot and has been amazing.’
