Christine and Paddy McGuinness are parents to twins, Leo and Penelope, who turn six next week, and two year old, Felicity.
Leo and Penelope have autism, while Felicity is also showing signs of the condition.
Speaking to new! magazine , Christine, 31, opened up on the guilt she feels when she has a night out.
She said: “I’ve always struggled with leaving the children and it’s only recently that I’ve started to enjoy it.
"It’s one night and I think it’s good for them to get used to it. I couldn’t do it all the time, though.
"My husband’s been in Portugal for a week and he’s not that bothered [laughs]. If it were me I’d be on the phone constantly FaceTiming and asking what’s going on. Are they safe? Have they been fed?"

Christine then revealed that she would never leave her three children alone with her Take Me Out host husband, 45.
When asked if she would leave their brood in his care for a week, she said: “No, not even for a night! I’d always have to have someone there to help – and my mum as well.”
Christine also revealed that she is used to Paddy spending so much time away from home thanks to his heavy workload, saying: “I’m quite used to it. I met him 12 years ago and it’s slowly built up. It’s not as if he suddenly got this new job and is away for months. It’s been a slow burner.”

“It is still hard and I miss him and the kids miss him, but we’ve got used to it. I think if he were there too much…
She continued: "I get a chance to miss him when he’s away and I love it when he’s home and we make the most of our free time.
"Don’t get me wrong, I’d love him to be home more than he is, but he’s doing it for us and is living his best life."
