Chloe Madeley has opened up on her relationship with husband James Haskell and how speaking about their romance on their new podcast has been “f**king good therapy”.

The 33 year old fitness star married I’m A Celebrity star and former rugby player James, 35, in 2018 after dating for around four years.

Two years later, Chloe and James found themselves in an extraordinary position, along with the rest of the UK, when Boris announced the lockdown across the country.

During which time, as well as setting up two businesses, Chloe recorded a podcast with her hubby, where they speak openly about their relationship and sex life.

Speaking exclusively to OK! online, Chloe has revealed that the candid podcast, called Couples Quarantine, was “f**king good therapy” for her.

Chloe, who revealed she had “blowout rows” with her husband James in lockdown, said: ‘Everyone knows in lockdown there are some hot bed topics, like, things that that you know if you start talking about could end in an argument.

“And I think every couple has them – they’re probably different for everyone I don’t presume they’re the same for two couples. Topics you have to broach very, very carefully.”

She added: “It’s so funny because when there’s a microphone in front of you, even though we’re not live and people aren’t watching us in real time, it’s a recording, but when there’s a microphone in front of you it’s kind of like you’re forced to behave a bit in terms of how you communicate with each other.


“It forces you to be very on your best behaviour and articulate yourself as compassionately as you can to the other person and it is actually, f**king good therapy.”

However, Chloe did admit she didn’t realise just how honest she and James had to be until they began discussing their sex life in the first episode, during which they revealed how her former England rugby union player husband James prefers to have sex in the afternoon than at night.

Richard and Judy’s daughter told us: “When we started recording the first episode I realised we were really gonna have to be 100% honest.

“So I was like: ‘Oh God what have I let myself in for?’ But we’re doing it now! And now it’s on the top 20 and number one on Spotify and I was like: ‘Well I guess everyone knows about everything now’.”

The open nature and the “therapeutic” affects of the podcast has improved her marriage to James, Chloe revealed.

Chloe explained to OK! online how the podcast gave them an opportunity to communicate in a new way.

She said: “I think it’s given us a setting in which we can have very open and honest conversations about things that, if the microphones were off and we were behind closed doors and, certainly, if we’d been locked up together for five months, would probably insight a riot. It definitely has been a good communication tool.

“I’m quite emotional and James can get quite temperamental so it’s nice to have a wet flannel placed on top of us so we can have the real conversation.”
