Cat Deeley says long-distance marriage is perfect as ‘we start getting on each other’s nerves’

Cat Deeley says her long-distance marriage has helped her relationship.

The TV presenter spends a lot of time in the US where she hosts television show So You Think You Can Dance, while her husband, TV comedian Patrick Kielty, is based in Ireland. But Cat said being apart for a few days at a time is ‘the perfect scenario’, reported the Sunday People.

She said: “We start getting on each other’s nerves. He starts to hate me and I start to hate him.

“And he has to go away and I kind of miss him. We’re normally apart for about 10 days. And then he comes back and we’re lovely again.”

The star – who married Patrick nearly two years ago – went on: “It works out perfectly. It’s the perfect scenario.

“Lots of my friends are quite jealous about our relationship.”
