Kelly revealed that she would repeatedly think about how her late husband would react if she were to move on, but she's since managed to overcome what 'earthly' Bob would think.
'You get to a point where you separate what earthly Bob would have been like,' she said. 'And he would have been like, "You can't move on! How dare you! How could you!"
