She told Loose Women on Tuesday that the pandemic has kept them apart - thanks to her living in the UK and Mark residing in the US.

'I’ve not been able to seen him so thank God for FaceTime!' Shirley said. 'I well up and get emotional. I just want to hug him, hold him.

'I had planned a visit next month, it looks like it’s not going to happen. It'll be moved to the next month...'

She also spoke about keeping Corky's surname after their divorce and how he refused to call her Shirley Ballas during an event post-divorce.

She explained that she won't change this as she likes having the same surname as her son, and if she were to remarry she would double-barrel.
