McFly star Tom Fletcher, 36,was diagnosed with bipolar disorder in 2010. Four years later, he candidly opened up about his struggles and times where he didn’t want to get out bed and face the day.

Earlier this year, Giovanna reflected on Tom’s mental health battle, admitting it was “tough” seeing him suffer.

The podcast host has however said she had noticed a difference in him following the birth of their first son Buzz, aged seven.

The couple have since gone on to have two more sons; five-year-old Buddy and Max, three.

Speaking to The Sun, she said: “It was really tough.

“Now I feel like he’s really good, but there was a time where I’d notice the cycles of it.

“Whether it was recording or touring, there was definitely a connection to what he was doing band-wise.”

The I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! 2020 winner added: “All you can do as a partner is be there and listen and try to be as supportive as possible; you don’t want to add extra pressure.”

Giovanna said since the couple had children, he hasn’t had any dips in his mental health and has come off of medication.

The couple married back in 2012 after getting together in their teens.

In the same chat, the mother-of-three said the pair still fancied each other after all those years and are the best of friends.

Giovanna has been supporting her spouse on Strictly Come Dancing in recent weeks.

The McFly star is partnered up with Amy Dowden and his family have been very much involved in the process.
