“No one should underestimate how separation and divorce can hit you.
“I compare it to a moment where you’re driving along the motorway and then the next moment, something beyond your control happens and you’re driving in a completely different direction.
“You have to give yourself time to get your head round it.”

“Now I look ahead and think about what I’ve gained; the main thing is having freedom to do what I want to do, so it feels like a door opening. I’m feeling very positive at the moment.
“I don’t feel angry with Paul – though of course there’s a certain amount of hurt. Anger is emotive and I’m not carrying that around with me. All it does is upset you.”
Alexandra will now live for herself which is a great thing!!!
