Despite the social media move, Jeff, 40, has insisted he and Kate are very much still together and working through their issues.

A rep told The Sun, ‘There is catagorically no split between Jeff and Kate. They have had some difficulties and are doing their upmost to work through them together and will continue to do so in private.’

Kate and Jeff – dad to sons Bobby, 16, and 15-year-old Freddie from his relationship with the late Jade Goody – married in Portugal last year and have been together for six years.

Shout out to the Mrs today. She’s looking at me with nothing but love in her eyes but today it’s me who wants to say thank you to her because she has given me something nobody else has come close to achieving. If I didn’t know before right now I’m under no illusion that Kate is the reliable strength I’ve always needed but never knew quite how much until now. Happy to admit my shortcomings, always learning, always developing, thank you Kate for helping me turn corners and open doors ❤️

Jeff previously opened up about how Kate had slotted into her role as step mum to his boys following Jade’s death from cervical cancer 10 years ago.

‘Kate as adjusted very well now to becoming a step mum and what it entails,’ he told MailOnline.

‘And the sacrafices that have to be made in order to give the children what they need first and foremost. We spend some lovely family time together as the four of us. I personally love it when Kate does things with the boys when I’m not around.’

Last year TV presenter Jeff confessed that PR director Kate had ‘completed’ his family after their Portuguese nuptials.
