'It’s been hell: Leigh-Anne Pinnock hates long-distance marriage

Leigh-Anne Pinnock's long-distance marriage to footballer Andre Grey is "hell" because she rarely gets to see him.



Leigh-Anne Pinnock's long-distance marriage is "hell".

The 'Don't Say Love' singer rarely gets to see her footballer husband Andre Grey - with whom she has two-year-old twins - because of his sporting career, with the striker currently playing for Saudi Arabian side Al-Riyadh, while she is in the UK with their children.

Appearing on the 'Table Manners' podcast, Leigh-Anne said: "We have a long-distance relationship. He lives in Saudi, he plays football there. So for the last two years, we’ve been apart basically, seeing each other for like maybe two days a month. It’s been hell to be honest."

The 32-year-old star tries not to feel resentful at the situation because she understands her spouse just wants to support his family.

She said: "I really try not to. We know what he’s doing it for, do you know what I mean, he’s doing it for us.

Andre is due to return home next week because his contract ends in the summer and although the former Little Mix singer is "so excited" to have her spouse back with her, she doesn't know what the future holds.

She said: “I’m so excited. We don’t know [what’s next].

"That’s also the thing about being a footballer, you just don’t know where you’re going to be, and I can’t move with him anywhere, because obviously I can’t have a career wherever he’s gonna go. I have to be, obviously, local to home.

"I had it good [at the start] because he played for QPR, he did Watford, and that was local so I had a couple of years of us living together. We had

the babies and then he had to go."
