“But we still live in the same house. We get on very well, we’re great friends. It’s better for the kids. I’ve had a lot of advice on this.

"One of my friends is a psychotherapist and she said, ‘As long as you’re getting on there’s no need to change your situation because the kids are always happier in a home with two parents’.

“Often what happens is if people separate the husband has to move out. But the way I look at it is, my husband has done nothing wrong. Why should he have to move out? He loves our kids, as I do.

“It’s just as well we had everything ironed out before everything happened last year because it would have been much harder to do in the public eye. We’d already made that decision just before my cancer came back.”

Asked why she feels the marriage didn’t work out, Vicky said: “There was nobody else. Nobody had an affair. It’s just circumstances, we’ve grown apart.

“There was too much thrown at us throughout our married life really. The s**t hit the fan within six months of being married when my pregnancy went haywire and we’ve been battling stuff ever since and you can’t keep doing that. You just can’t.

Campaigner Vicky Phelan has criticised the Taoiseach over the Government's handling of the CervicalCheck crisis. Responding to s Phelan ’s criticism, Mr Harris said the process of externally reviewing the slides of women who had been diagnosed with cervical cancer would begin later this

The 2018 CervicalCheck cancer controversy was a scandal that involved several women in the Republic of Ireland suing the Health Service Executive (HSE) for receiving incorrect smear test results for cervical cancer .

“If that changes obviously we will have to revisit it. But, for the moment, we’re happy to stay the way we are because we get on fine. I’d be happy if he met somebody else. Hand on heart, 100% I would.”

Vicky told how she sat down their eldest child, 14-year-old Amelia, to tell her mammy and daddy were no longer sharing a bed.

She said: “I explained that because I don’t want her growing up thinking what we have is a normal relationship because it isn’t.

“But, in fairness, she was very astute anyway. She said, ‘Well, you’re not very romantic and you don’t go out on dates’. She was no fool. We don’t give kids enough credit.

“But we tried. We tried a number of times to get back, it was just too hard.

“So when we made the decision to just forget about it as a couple it made things much easier and we’ve actually started getting on better. There’s no pressure and no expectation, we’re just parents. We’re happy with that, both of us.”

However, the devoted mum revealed she found it “very difficult” to recount how Amelia suffered severe burns to her upper body aged seven.

The youngster was dancing in front of the fireplace when her nightclothes suddenly went up in flames after a spark flew past the fireguard, resulting in her being hospitalised for weeks.

She also bravely tells how her battle with cancer was not her first brush with death.

A young Vicky shattered her pelvis and was left in a coma following a car crash in France that killed her boyfriend.

Vicky Phelan Vicky Phelan “It’s just unbelievable. You would think it was fiction, except it isn’t. There were parts were very hard to revisit again.

“But I have to say to myself, ‘I’m well now. I’m in a good place. There’s no point in thinking, why did this always happen to me?’ I don’t allow myself to go there.”

And Vicky said she “hasn’t felt the need” to see a therapist since first going public to help expose the CervicalCheck scandal.

She added: “I’ve shared so much over the last 18 months it’s actually nearly like therapy.”

The family is now looking forward to their once-in-a-lifetime Christmas trip.

Vicky said: “There isn’t a hope in hell we would have been able to do it without the money from the court case.

“The money has allowed us to spend time with family and make memories.”
