Samia Longchambon on husband Sylvain and 'bilingual' son, 4

They've been married since August 2016 after meeting while paired together on the 2013 series of Dancing On Ice.

And Samia Longchambon gushed about her husband Sylvain, 39, calling him 'her rock' while appearing on Lorraine on Wednesday morning.

The Coronation Street actress, 37, also revealed the couple's son Yves, four, is already 'completely bilingual' because the professional skating speaks French to him all the time.

The soap star, who is also mum to daughter Freya, 10, from her first marriage, praised her partner and said he's a 'brilliant' father.

Speaking about how they juggle work commitments, Samia said: 'It's teamwork. He's a fantastic dad. 

'Luckily, I don't have to leave them [the kids] overnight, with Corrie I get to go home at night, Sylvain's brilliant, he's my rock.'

The star went on to reveal how little Yves has already mastered the French language despite only being four all thanks to his doting dad.

She said: 'My son Yves is completely bilingual, it's amazing. It's thanks to Sylvain, obviously. 

'He just speaks to him in French all the time, so he understands everything. It's quite magical, really. He's got a little French accent when he speaks French as well.'

Samia also praised Sylvain and said: 'He's really intelligent, he puts me to shame... I try. 

'We went to France for New Year to see all his family. They don't speak great English, so I'm thrown into the deep end.'
