Vogue Williams has opened up about her split from her former husband and Westlife member, Brian McFadden.
The pair would emigrate to Australia together and married in 2012, before splitting in 2015.
Having gone onto find happiness with Made in Chelsea’s Spencer Matthews, the former model has rarely spoken about her first marriage.
In a telling moment on her podcast, My Therapist Ghosted Me, the presenter opened about emigrating and the strain it put on her previous marriage.
“I also blame Australia for my first marriage, but anyway... why don't you go to Australia, why hasn't he invited you over?" said Williams bluntly, as she spoke about her own experiences.
She continued sarcastically: “Do what I did, follow a relationship to Australia, it will work out really well! Move to Australia with him, it's a nice place, it's warm, it's sunny!”
After meeting in 2011, Williams and McFadden moved down under whilst he was working on Australia’s Got Talent.
At the time, the move seemed to work but separated from their loved ones – things began to turn sour. The pair separated in 2015 and then finalised their divorce in 2017.
Around the same time, Williams began dating MIC star Matthews following their appearance on Channel 4’s The Jump.
"When you meet the one that didn't get away - after the one you thought got away - you'll realise the one that you thought got away isn't the one that got away... because he was c**p!" said the mum-of-three.
Despite the divorce, Williams have often remained tight-lipped about her previous marriage and choose to focus on the family she’s built with Matthews.
However, in a previous episode of her podcast Williams did say that she ‘just moved on' following her first marriage.
“To be honest I think you should just move on, everyone just leaves with their own stuff, get divorced quickly and be done with it, because it's the most annoying thing,” Williams told listeners.
“I’m just glad I got Winnie in the end,” she joked, referring to her beloved dog which she previously shared with McFadden.
She added: “With my divorce, we just went our separate ways and did our own thing and took our own stuff that we went in with.”
Though Williams has been pretty matter-of-fact about her last marriage, she has admitted that she struggled with anxiety after the split – calling it a ‘work-in-progress’.
