Mark Labbett has confirmed that he is back with his wife Katie despite her admitting earlier this year that she had cheated on him with a younger man.
The Chase star, 53, announced that he had split from his wife of five years Katie, 26, in May after it emerged that she had been seeing someone else for the past year.
However Mark, also known as The Beast on the ITV quizzing show, said that they were “working their way through a rough patch”.
This comes four months after Katie said that they had split and that she was with metal worker Scott Bate, 28.
Appearing on Loose Women earlier today, Mark said: “Like a lot of relationships, you go through a rough patch. We’re working our way through it.
“A newspaper offered us a sum of money and we kindly denied. We’re quite private, there’s no pictures of our son online and I’m not going to name him until he’s old enough to make the decision.
Panelist Denise Welch asked whether they were still together and Mark flashed his wedding ring.
The couple, who have one son, decided to go their separate ways after images emerged showing Katie on a date with metal worker Scott in May.
The quizzing guru and his partner, who are second cousins, also reportedly decided to put their £600,000 home in Hereford up for sale at the time.
Opening up about his dramatic weight loss following his hectic schedule, Mark said: “It’s the joy of running around a little one, I don’t have time to eat! I got down to 25 stone, at my heaviest I was 29 stone.”
Speaking out following news of her year-long affair, Katie told the Sun on Sunday : “I met Scott by accident, on a night out, and we just clicked.
“It wasn’t intentional, it just happened. But Mark always knew — straight from the off I was honest.
“We remain good friends and he is happy for me that I’ve met Scott — and I’d be fine if he met someone else.
“So I just want to set the record straight now as I’m sick of all the speculation. I want us all to be able to get on with our lives.”
