    Their relationship was rocked by the revelations that Vernon Kay had been sending explicit messages to five different women, including glamour model Rhian Sudgen.

    Writing in her regular column for The Mirror, Tess said: ‘The past few weeks have been tough, but we’re working through it.’

    I’ve been really touched by the support I’ve had from the public, and it feels great to be back at work,’ she continued.

    The 38-year-old chose to take some time off work following the scandal, and kept away from the public eye.

    But Tess and Vernon made their first public appearance as a couple on Monday, putting on a united front to host the Prince’s Trust Celebrate Success Awards – both being ambassadors for the charity.
