The couple just enjoy being in each other's company

Abbey Clancy thinks it’s important that she and husband Peter Crouch fit in alone time together after three years of marriage.

The 28-year-old model – who welcomed daughter Sophia in 2011 – has enjoyed being free to see more of footballer Peter, 32, since she won Strictly Come Dancing last month.

‘We’ve always had dates, we love them so always make time for them. It was tough while I was doing the show because I wasn’t able to,’ says Abbey.

‘When I got home I was tired and I didn’t want to leave Sophia with her nan again to go out with Pete. We like to all be together.’

The couple spent a luxurious night at The Dorchester earlier this month after dining at the London hotel’s restaurant China Tang to celebrate Abbey‘s birthday.

But they don’t always need to head to fancy locations to have fun.

‘Sometimes Sophia will go to my mum’s or Pete‘s mum’s and we’ll just watch a nice film with a takeaway and lie on the couch together,’ says Abbey.

‘We watch films and we love Breaking Bad, The Sopranos, Prison Break and Homeland, things like that.’
