Richard Madeley, star of television program This Morning from 1988 to 2001 with his wife, Judy Finnegan, has spoken about the struggle being in lockdown together. The 63 year old, who has been married to Judy for 33 years, said that, on occasions, things do get ‘tense’ between them as they try to manage life amid the pandemic currently spread across the world. He went on to say that ‘in all marriages things can get snappy and tense, especially when you are confined together 24 hours a day, 7 days a week’.
Sharing his own advice he said that it is understandable in these sort of times that it is going to happen and the best thing to do is walk away, go for a walk or into another room and read a book.
On Monday the co-hosts sensationally returned to our TV screens on Channel 4 after having a talk show on the channel from 2001 to 2009. During that time they launched the popular slot “book club” and have now returned to start that again in a program called ” Richard and Judy: Keep Reading and Carry On.
