The pair posed for photos showing them cuddling outside their home near Cheltenham, Wiltshire – although West was pictured without his wedding while his wife kept her ring finger hidden in her jeans pocket.

With smiles on their faces, he and Catherine, 49, handed photographers a piece of paper, which repeated the words in his handwriting: 'Our marriage is strong and we're very much still together', with their signatures placed underneath.

The pair have been married since 2010 and the pair have four children.
