Vogue Williams' pillow trick

Vogue Williams' pillow trick

Vogue Williams used to spoon a pillow to cope with her split from Brian McFadden.

The 30-year-old television personality has admitted that she manoeuvred her pillow into a spoon position for those lonely single nights after being in relationships for 11 years.

She said: "I was in relationships back to back for 11 years, that's since I've been 19 so I needed to have a break and be on my own. I hated being on my own. I was terrified of being on my own. I had nobody to text. I had nobody to spoon - I learnt this new pillow trick so it felt like it.

"And those are the parts that I missed but I knew I had to be comfortable being on my own. When you're in a relationship you do rely on that person when it's like, 'What are we going to do this night' and I didn't have that anymore and I love it now, I'm enjoying it, I think people just find it weird that I'm quite happy to be single."

The pair enjoyed a high profile relationship for four years before calling a quits in 2015 but Vogue knew that she'd found the one even after her first date with the 36-year-old hunk.

She said: "My friend told me all these rules and I was like I can't be dealing with that, that's two new rules. So you can't be available within two days of them asking you out, never give away your weekends and then I think you can sleep with somebody on the third date.

"I just said I can't do that and like you can throw all the rules out the window and me and Brian did hanky panky on the first night we met and then we ended up getting married but I'm not saying I do that with everyone. It worked out well for a while! But yeah it just depends."

And Vogue has started going on dates again now including with newly-divorced Professor Green.

Speaking on ITV's Loose Women, she said: "The funny thing about that is we have a lot of mutual friends. I have been on dates with other people but they've managed to go under the radar! I'm not going to tell you who, they didn't go well so ... I mean I'm going to meet a few frogs, let's be honest."
