"It's taken a lot of years and a lot of biting my tongue. Seriously, though, it's mainly down to Adam and Ryan.

"It helps that everyone has moved on and is in a happy place. Ryan is really happy [he's loved up with digital marketing consultant Lana Martin, 25] and we are happy, so there aren't any issues."

"For the sake of Scarlett, it has been well worth preserving [our relationship] and choosing our battles.”

The popular actress said she aims to create a happy home for her seven-year-old daughter and even shared Christmas with her ex two years ago.
