Davina McCall has confessed she and husband Matthew Robertson have little time to go on dates so they use trips to the dentist as their opportunity to have a "nice" time
Davina McCall and her husband go on dates to the dentist.
The 47-year-old presenter admits it is tough finding quality time to spend with spouse Matthew Robertson - with who she has kids Holly, 12, Tilly, 10, and seven-year-old Chester - so they do "mundane" tasks together and still manage to have a "nice" time.
She said: "Matthew and I are strong but like any couple, we know we need quality time together, whenever we can get it.
"Actually, the other day we did this mundane thing. I booked us both into the dentist at the same time. And we said we would go to our appointments then wait for each other, mooch along the street to the car and drive back again.
"I know it sounds silly, but it was an hour and a half on our own with no iPads, no phones and no kids. Just us talking.
"Afterwards we both said how nice it was to have that time together."
Davina also believes it is important to spend one-on-one time with her children and admits to "ignoring" her offspring when she is bonding with one of the others.
She explained to Closer magazine: "Being a working mother is a huge juggling act. With my kids, especially as they get older, it's about finding quality time for them individually.
"I honestly spend 45 minutes putting each child to bed and they get that time from me undvided.
"If another child walks in I will ignore them and say, 'No this isn't your bedtime.' "
