It comes after Christine admitted she was ‘pretending’ to be someone else during her marriage to Paddy.
The TV personality said she went into ‘perfect wife’ mode during her relationship with Paddy as she spoke about how she would ‘mask’ her autism.
Christine, who announced her split from Paddy in July last year, was diagnosed in 2021 while filming her documentary Our Family and Autism.
Autism is a developmental disability which affects how people communicate, and ‘masking’ refers to when someone suppresses natural autistic responses.

Speaking about masking, Christine said she was ‘pretending’ to be a ‘perfect’ wife during her marriage to Paddy rather than simply being herself.
She told Psychologies magazine: ‘I’d always wanted to be a wife so once I met Patrick, I fully went into ‘perfect wife’ mode, you know, “I’ll stay in, I’ll cook and clean and make sure I’m the best wife I can be”.
‘I was always pretending to be something else rather than simply just me, that’s all part of masking.’

Christine admitted she ‘grieves’ for her younger self and said she became an ‘expert’ at playing a role to fit in when she was a teenager.
Speaking about her split from Paddy, Christine admitted she wants her three children, who have all been diagnosed with autism, to see them both getting along.
Paddy and Christine are currently still living together and haven’t told their kids- twins Penelope and Leo, nine, and daughter Felicity, seven about their split.

Christine said she doesn’t want there to be any ‘dramatic’ changes for their children and still wants them to still be a loving and happy family.
She continued: ‘We don’t want any dramatic changes overnight so it’s going to be a slow process moving forward, we don’t really know what the future holds.’
Christine and Paddy announced that they had parted ways back in July last year after 11 years of marriage, but later revealed that they ended their relationship earlier in the year.
Despite the break-up, the estranged couple recently enjoyed a festive family holiday with their three children.
Speaking to OK! Magazine on the split, Christine shared: ‘We’re amicable. I’m quite happy for him to be there with the children and it’s nice for them to see Mummy and Daddy just being alright. We can sit and have a cup of tea together and that’s fine.’
